About

As an adult onset athlete, and one that is on the larger end of the scale, I have found it nearly impossible to find race kits (Triathlon) or just plain singlets that fit. After starting my blog, and eventually the podcast (Back of Pack Endurance) I found that I share this frustration with many people who race. This project would create branded race and training gear for the heavier, larger, taller, athlete.

Risks and challenges

Finding the right provider will be the most difficult. The plan would be to go to an established outfitter such as Perl Izumi, 2Xu, etc, to see if they'd be interested in developing a line. If not, then the next step would be to locate a smaller clothing manufacturer.
