Summer Of Sweat // Tricia Mangan

by Roger Carry on July 16, 2021

This week for the #SummerOfSweat, World Cup Racer Tricia Mangan takes us through the triathlon she competed in this past month. Tricia and her siblings entered in the intermediate distance featuring a 1500 meter swim 25-mile bike and 6-mile run.  

For my Summer of Sweat challenge I decided to do an Intermediate Triathlon which is a 1500 m swim 25 mile bike and 6 mile run. My family has always loved doing triathlons as a fun challenge for us all to go out, try our hardest and have a ton of fun. What I love most about them is you are always able to go a lot faster and do a lot more than you think you’re capable of and it’s fun to have a race setting to let the friendly competitiveness come out and motivate you.

Pushing yourself physically is super rewarding and not only helps me train physically for the ski season but also mentally. I think it’s very important to test your limits in all ways every now and then to continue to grow on and off the slopes. I hope everyone is able to push themselves in some way this summer and that the Summer of Sweat challenges help give you inspiration and encouragement!

Best Jacket I've Owned

No question as to this is the best jacket I have owned. 6'3" 165lbs and medium fits great, slimmer fit. You will not regret this and never want to take it off. Amazing weight for warmth. Flexibility could not be better. Durability is top notch. No snags, scratches, holes and that's skiing Steamboat trees for 30+ days 3 seasons in a row.

Great race suit!

This has nice fabric, great design

Stretch Puffy

Great coat, but 4/5 as the zippers could pull more easily. It is largely a two-hand job to open phone pocket and difficult to open hand pockets instead of the typical glide of a nice zipper. Otherwise the fit and finish is excellent.

Men’s Benchmark Fleece Jacket

Ha! I love all your stuff. This fleece is well designed like most of your products and is great for travel, hiking, fall mountain biking and soon, I expect, skiing.
Love the high collar, one of my favorite features.

Great Race Suit

I’ve purchased 2 of these for my son. Prior we tried several others with POC’s being the best quality. These suits fit well, offer amazing padding / protection and are incredibly cut / tear resistant. The POC’s were certainly high quality, but these Sync’s are better. I don’t think there’s a better race suit on the market.
