Triathlon Pics

Just completed the Malibu triathlon last weekend, Sept 8th and thought I would post as few pictures. The triathlon is on the shorter side, 1/2 mile swim, 18 mile ride and 4 mile run.

Re: BPI Doctor for adult

Hi, I would post this question in the OBPN or the general forums.

Re: Athletic Arm Sling

Another great picture, this is Ryan shooting a shotgun one handed. Love all the things people do when they desire to continue doing the things they love to do.

Re: Athletic Arm Sling

So how is that for testing out the limits of what the sling can do, withstanding 140 mph winds:) By the way, this is Kevin Burkart and jus...
