I agree with Cindy - forget the wheels, get a new bike...
You will notice a huge difference, even with the cheaper entry-level roadbikes these days compared with your old bike. Then give the bike to one of the boys and get him to come riding with you!
FWIW, Wheel Smith does make good rims, of course this depends on what rim/hub/spoke combo you get. With all wheels, be careful buying used - get it looked at (it may need to be trued or the spoke tensioned evened out) at the LBS before you stick them on your bike. Also make sure the rear hub will take your cassette (Campy vs. Shimano).

If God invented marathons to keep people from doing anything more stupid, the triathlon must have taken Him completely by surprise.
