Awesome awesome awesome weekend !!!!
What a beautiful spot is Forster. Fantastic place for this weekend & we couldn't have asked for better weather.
We arrived on Friday around lunch and settled in to our accommodation.
Took the bikes out for a spin, organised dinner with the gang and was now settled in for a brilliant weekend of racing.
On Satuday my son (JimmyJack) wanted to race the 5k Fun Run. Straight away the challenge went out to race against his mum (me) and I thought ohhh shit... i'm gonna cop it. Anyway, we towed the line together and within 10 seconds I didn't see him again. I'm very proud to say he took out the First place for his age and mum (me) took out 2nd for my age. Great way to settle my nerves for the long course race in the morning.
Arrived nice and early at the transition area on Sunday morning. I was very nervous about the swim and thought i'd take my time and try to 'enjoy' it as much as i could. Ok, well... i got hit, punched, swum over, knocked and still managed to swim through choppy water. Got back to shore and attempted to run up the hill... nope... that wasn't going to happen. All my friends were calling out to get moving and my only words were 'that was horrible'
Got to my bike and got a fairly quick and clean getaway. Enjoyed the ride and according to some took my time and cruised around. I found the ride outta town brilliant.. but the ride back in was quite windy.
Onto the run and my legs felt great. I kept seeing MissZ, Muzman and many others that I recognised. The run course was great for keeping us interested. I loved it!!
Finished in a time of 4:18 - 6th in my age group.
Jimmy-Jack - love this kid so much.
Balance Crew - how cool are these guys
. We had the best weekend together & the cheering was phenominal.
Hills Club - the noise was unreal as we ran through each lap.
B+ - best coach ever!!
Forster - hope they put this event on again.
