2011 is shaping up to be an exciting year. I have made a big change in sponsorship that most of my blog readers will be finding out about...well, right now. I'm a traitor, and team switcher! I kid, a little. I have decided to take an opportunity to race the 2011 season on the Kompetitive Edge team. I am extremely excited to race for both TYR and Kompetitive Edge this coming year, it was a great opportunity for me, and sometimes you need to grab the bull by the horns.

I love all of the people I have met through Team Trakkers, and they are such stand up individuals that I know they will continue to love and support me although I'm not wearing a neon green race kit. I know I have lead many of you to apply for Team Trakkers (I loved all those emails by the way) and please believe me when I tell you that I have nothing but love for all that is green. If you will be suiting up in green next year, you are a star in my book.

As I talked to Carole, the Team Trakkers mama bear, about my decision it was hard not to feel like a total amateur about all this stuff. I'm not used to having choices, opportunities, and I would be lying if I said the prospect didn't make me a bit uncomfortable at times. Talking to Charlie who owns Rev3 and Trakkers reminded me just how far and high his company will climb and I hope that I can still be a part of Rev3 success for years to come.

I am unbelievably excited to be racing for Kompetative Edge this year. I have set a big goal that may take several years to achieve (which I would tell you about if I wasn't such a chicken). However I am really committed to this goal and it is important for me to surround myself in an environment that is dedicated to helping me achieve my very specific mission. Kompetitive Edge fits that mold. As a swim and triathlon shop that carries the best of the best and wants their athletes racing in the cream of the crop gear, I am getting a tangible amount of local and specific support. I believe in their goals as a company and I'm excited to work with them throughout the year. They are committed to supporting athletes that are racing in Kona and that is where my 2011 season is headed.

Changes come in many forms. I love my Trakkers Teamies, and I always will. I can't wait to get to know and come to love my Kompetitive Edge Teamies as well. If you have any questions for me, please feel free to email me or "contact me" using the link at the top of the blog. I'm an open book!
