Oh, race reports are always a good excuse to write up a post or two. And given I raced prolifically this summer, race reports abounded. Now that I'm in a boring training block for IM Cairns, there's far less to say. I'll stick with the basics:
-- Not long after IM NZ, I played race sherpa for Christian as he raced an off-road sprint triathlon. The spectacular views of Moke Lake:
-- I did indeed race Lake Hayes Olympic tri, where I placed 3rd OA female, and 2nd in my age group. Whee!!!
-- I had my quarter-life crisis, gave up training and racing Ironman, bought myself a mountain bike! I'm thrashing myself on it, and I'm going to give off-road racing a go next summer season.
-- I will be racing Ironman Cairns on June 9th, but I haven't had a typical build: it's cold, I'm on a mountain bike to keep warm, I hate road running so I'm just trail running in the hills. Plus, don't forget that quarter-life crisis. I'm only doing this because I had registered for it nearly one year ago, I'll enjoy this wee race in tropical North Queensland yet again, but then I'm going to go full-tilt into off-road racing and see where that takes me. It's going to be an exciting ride!!
