I am the opposite of a hoarder.
I fear the accumulation of “stuff.”
I traveled from Borneo to Lombok over a stretch of 2 months with nothing but this backpack.
I lived in Washington, DC for 3 years before I bought a bed. I preferred hand-me-down futons and the yoga mat-mattresses to the permanency that comes with possessions too big for a backpack. It’s that same fear of possession accumulation that keeps me in an exclusive relationship with my one and only bike, ChiTo.
So, when I received this HOT pair of polarized TYR goggles in my SWAG bag at Kona, I wanted to share them with someone who didn’t already have a pair!
And the winner of the TYR Google contest is:
Maria, of the clever and instructive Water Blogged Triathlete, pictured below (in blue).
When I contacted Maria with the good news, she replied “I only have one pair for outdoor use and they’ve seen better days.” So happy to hear that my aversion to hoarding means that someone “in need” will put these goggles to good use!
Though Maria was chosen at random, her submission for the caption contest was among my favorites:
As they took their marks, Mary wondered, “Am I supposed to make a bee line or a bee hive for it?”
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
