Run for the Toad

Any interest in my bib?

(25km)

I bought it early, so it's the cheap price and I would cover the change cost. Something has come up and I am 99% sure I cant make it. :(

compression tights

I've never worn a pair before. I ended up getting a pair of cw-x off ebay.

a size small b/c that is what I wear, and they look SMALL!! lol I can get them on, and once they are on, they feel ok!?!?! Is it normal to jump around the room from them to pull them up? :lol:
