I am wanting to make my wife a shirt for my first ironman to say thanks for all her support. Here is what I have come up with. What do y'all think? Comments or suggestions welcome. I hope the picture loads correctly.

Are you only doing half the swim?

Also, how does she feel about cheer leaders? My wife would like the front, but not the back.
I got her an Ironmate shirt with the M being the M-dot

Like this, but in purple. Purple looks great on her!

 

 

ETA - there were also "team" shirts worn my my wife and children. Don't have the design handy but it was swim/bike/run stylized stick figures with IMLP 2011 and 140.6 on the front. The back was "Team {last name} and the number 50 because my goal was to do an IM at age 50

I made my wife one that says:

"I don't do triathlons but I do a triathlete"

Ha! Thanks for catching that! She liked that shirt but since I am not doing a WTC race I thought I would just make her one.

I'm not sure my wife would appreciate the cheerleader on the back otherwise I think it looks great.  Actually, for a shirt recognizing her as ironwife she'd want to see something like pounds of laundry done, number of meals cooked, number of vacations consumed by my races in a tongue and cheek kind of way.

Thanks. Yeah I was 50/50 about the cheerleader but I thought I would see what others thought.

why not make the back like a jersey - with "ironwife" for the last name and 140.6 like the jersey number?  that would be really cool actually...

When people think of hydration in the aero position, the first name that comes to mind is the Aerodrink from Profile Design. I was expecting a pretty quick and breezy review of this water bottle.

Yes, the Dual is a little heavier than Cervèlo’s high end counterparts. But…the price is within reach of the masses and it still incorporates all of the design features that make a Cervèlo special.
