If you are on this website it is probably because you visited our booth at a running or triathlon expo, similar to the above picture, somewhere in America. Most of our items are featured on this website, but if you saw something at an expo that is not shown, please feel free to contact us. We do ask your indulgence because we travel around the country to expos and are on the road more than 200 days per year. For that reason, your item(s) could be shipped to you from anywhere in the U.S. Some of our suppliers have agreed to drop ship merchandise to you, other items we may have to take from our "traveling stock."
Meet "Coach Dave"
"Coach Dave" Laprise coached runners and triathletes at the Junior High School, High School, club, clinic, one on one, elite and group levels for more than 25 years. He held certifications from Road Runners Club of America, USA Triathlon, and as an ACE Personal Trainer. The coach competed in 53 marathons, including 17 "Bostons", and numerous road races. Also more than 100 triathlons including the USA Triathlon and Senior Olympic National Championship races. He ran from Miami, Florida to Weymouth, MA with his two sons personally averaging 38 miles per day for 28 consecutive days. Dave ran 105 miles in 24 hours and also did a 24 hour triathlon in torrential rains consisting of a 2 mile swim, 50 miles running and 110 miles on the bike. The coach ran his age in miles on his 40th, 45th and 55th birthdays and swam 50 laps in a pool, biked 50 miles and ran 50 miles on his 50th birthday. He ran 40 miles of a torch relay from the State House in Boston, MA to UMASS, Amherst to celebrate the opening of the inaugral Massachusetts Bay State Games. While coaching at the high school level, he ran a solo, 10 mile fund raising "race" against relay teams made up of student athletes and faculty, beating them all. Through the years, Dave has done extensive race announcing at various races and triathlons throughout New England. Because of the extensive travel schedule, he has had to, unfortunately, curtail his coaching activities. Some serious, potential life threatening medical issues in 2003 put an end to the coach's competive career, but he still runs and bikes for fitness.
