STORE HOURS and EVENTS AFFECTED BY ISAAC

Although we did plan to open Thursday morning,
the stalling of Isaac will prevent that.

We plan to open Thursday afternoon around 1:00PM,
but we will be watching the weather.

We are still unsure whether or not the Newton Clinic will take place,
we will hopefully have an answer by tomorrow.

Check our Facebook and website for updates.

In the meantime, enjoy this photo compliments of one of our customers:

Norseman Xtreme Triathlon


This weekend, our very own Mark Miller will be making his mark on
the world's toughest triathlon with the help of his crew member, Smitty Smith.  
Let's hope Norway sends these crazy Cajun boys back in one piece!

Norseman is the world’s toughest long-distance distance triathlon. 
It is also the most northern, taking place at the same latitude as Anchorage in Alaska. 
The race is a travel through some of the most beautiful parts of Norway. It is not a 
normal circuit-race as it starts in a fjord and finishes at mountain Gaustatoppen at 
1,850 meters above sea level. Total ascent is 5,000 meters. The water temperature is 
normally about 15.5 degrees C, and the air temperature normally
ranges from 6 to 28 degrees C through the race day. The first about 160
participants are expected to be allowed to finish at the top of the mountain.
The others are allowed to finish at the mountain plateau.

To learn more about this grueling event, click here.

Here are a couple of photos they have sent us so far of the area:






Best of luck to you, Mark!
