Our Favorite Tri-Gear

If you know us at all you know that we love gear! In this episode we list all of our favorite gear with one rule: it can't be a swimsuit, goggles, a bike, or shoes. It's all the other stuff that makes Tri-gear so much fun. We also check in with "Team Unthinkables" member Jeff Wright about his fundraising efforts with the Scott Rigsby Foundation.
