On Sunday, after Rianman's 19-miler in the heat, I took his water bottles and FuelBelt and dumped them in the kitchen sink for their regular spa soak with some Dawn. I figure if it can clean oil-coated sea otters, it can get the goop off all the plastic and stink off the sweaty straps and bands and stuff.
Well on Sunday night, Rianman asked if I emptied the FuelBelt pouch when I washed it.
Me: "No. I never do. It's always got gel packs and cash--why bother?"
Him: "I put my iPod in there."
So on Monday morning I put the Purple Shuffle in a bag of brown rice (it's better for you) in the hopes of drying it out. Here it is before we took it out today.
Did it work?
Nope. Another Shuffle Bites the Dust. It's becoming an annual thing lately. A Shuffle a year - just another triathlete expense. They should just start carrying them at the bike and tri shops.
