Meeting Dan and Jackie from the Biggest Looser

This weekend we have been at the San Diego Rock`n Roll Marathon. While working the booth we enjoyed the company of Jackie and Dan from the Biggest Looser. Both of them where working for their charity: Team Future. It has been great to hear their story and see their transformation. Due to a little bit of help from us they enjoyed the 1/2 marathon on Sunday even more. Both of them are wearing SLS3 compression socks.
"Great Picture! We loved running in those socks, they were great! Thanks again!"

Update Heleen bij de Vaate

"The triathlon season has just started for me. So far I have done two 70.3 races on the Spanish Island of Mallorca and in St. Polten in Austria, resulting in 11th and 8th ranks. Not very good yet, but important for me was to gain a rhythm and some points for the Ironman World-ranking. I am still within the top-20.
I didn’t do my regular trainingcamps between January and April. I stayed at home in our new environment in France. In the meantime I have access to all important facilities like the swimming pool, athletic track, fitness-studio and found an excellent swim-trainer and a good physiotherapist. 
Right now I am in the Spanish Sierra Nevada doing my altitude training camp to prepare for the first full Ironman of this year: 3rd of July in Klagenfurt, Austria. There (and 3 weeks later in Frankfurt, Germany) I hope to gain enough points to classify amongst the best 25 of the world-ranking at July 31st, to qualify for the World Champs on Hawaii in October." I will be racing in my SLS3 Triathlon Suit and Compression socks.
In other words: the most important months of the year are coming soon, as well as my fitness-level hopefully.
