Update #20

WE ARE BUILDING SOME WATCHES!!!!

No words can express how we feel about what YOU all did.

Tomorrow we sleep.

Sunday we race (Vineman 70.3 - yes, I'm serious. How funny is that?)

And then we put this effort in to high gear. 

We'll collect information about watches, shirts, and team affiliation next week. And yes, all Kickstarter watches will be sporting a special backers-only band. Would you expect anything less?

Stay tuned.

Humbled and more grateful than you'll ever know.

Cheryl & Sylvia

      Congrats from one of the guys who helped. I've had my eye on the Garmin 310xt for a while now, but was not real excited about having that behemoth bouncing around on my wrist either. Will wear my Bia proudly!

      Congrats! I cannot tell you how EXCITED I am for you. I am hoping to order the go stick before shipment... I couldn't quite swing for the full watch yesterday, so to make up for it I drove my friends batty with FB, blog comments, daily mile posts... whatever/whereever I could think of to get the word out. :)

      This is absolutely incredible - never underestimate the power of women to get something done. I'm in San Diego too and want to celebrate with the BIA team. Blasting through the Kickstarter goal after being only about 25% of the way there less than a week ago is truly amazing!!
