We’re passionate about mutlisport events, such as triathlon, adventure racing, and mixed martial arts - anything that requires multiple skills to execute well. These events are time-consuming by nature, and today’s consumption culture suggests that we need to buy lots of gadgets in order to participate - many of which only take time away from actually doing what we love. Our goal is to minimize the “work” that’s necessary for play. Finding the strategies or products that serve our goals with our limited time. Our blog and podcast explore these topics, on a quest for maximizing fun and living a full life.
