Trying another Triathlon

Being injured for such a long time meant that there was plenty of cross-training. So I decided it was time to put all of that extra training to use and compete in a Triathlon. I did my first ever Triathlon at TriWyong last year with the Try-aTri event, but this year it was time to up it to the longest they had available.

All the scoping done, I was a bit more tired than I like but was at the Info Centre just before 4am Tuesday morning. A couple of photos in front of the signs & starting the new tracker I had hooked up for anyone that wanted to follow. I counted down the 4am start and mum filmed me running off. The initial run out of town, I think was nice. I mean you follow the coast line. But it was also dark, and I was
