Eventful Saturday, Part 1: TRIpalooza


It’s officially my triathlon off-season so I’m supposed to take this time to focus on things I need work on, like my swim stroke. However, it’s also during the off-season when multisport shops put their merchandise on sale. But it’s a hassle driving up and down the metro trying to find the best deals. What’s a triathlete (with a payday check in hand) to do?

Well, what if I told you just for this weekend (September 29 to 30) all those great stores got together in one venue offering their most enticing deals? That’s what’s happening at TRIpalooza at Venice Piazza in McKinley Hill, Taguig. Despite it being a warm and humid day, I went over there to see what goodies I could snatch up.

I couldn’t stay for the afternoon’s activities, among them a talk on Running 101 by coach Ani de Leon-Brown. But I was able to do a lot of browsing.
