New Adventure!

The past month has been a blur of Ironman training, work and the start of a new adventure for Kyle and I. After a couple years of dreaming about opening a triathlon store Kyle made the decision to go for it and do it this year. He spent months doing the research and planning and then when he found a great location right by the east entrance to Marymoor Park in Redmond he signed a lease and we were off and painting.

Mr. Crampy's Multisport was born.

After almost a month of "remodeling" we officially opened the doors for the grand opening on Saturday. We got a lot of our inventory (including the bikes) on Friday so it was long night to get everything ready but we had a lot of wonderful help from my Mom, Kyle's dad came into town and most of all our Master Mechanic Matt.
We officially opened at 10a and Kyle was shocked that people were already heading in to check the place out. It was amazing (and surreal after no sleep) how many people came out to check out the store and support use. We figured our team would come out but there were a lot of people who had heard from facebook or word of mouth, or were ridding by and stopped in to say hi.

Matt, Kyle and I still took some time to play after the opening

We are so thankful to K-Swiss, Argon 18 Bikes, GU Eneregy, Powerbar, Xterra Wetsuits, Tank Cycle/Matrix Wheels, Sugoi Performance Apparel, Stuffitts Shoe Savers, Amphipod, and Speedfil. Who all came through for us and helped us be ready for the opening.

Also a huge Thank You to Blazing Bagels for the yummy bagel plates and Jamie of All Trades for some delicious cupcakes.
