Joe and I flew to Melbourne for the weekend with my little sister. We travelled down to Lorne for the Pier to Pub swim and the Mountain to Surf run. It was great fun. Over 2000 people participated in the 8km run on a hot Friday evening and then 4300 took to the waters for the 1.2km swim on Saturday afternoon. Em, Joe and I did both events and were all happy with our efforts, times and placings. I ran into 11th in 32.45 and finished 24th in the swim in 14.45.
14 days off "hell" included 40km of swimming, 1000kms on the bike and 180km of running with Christmas and New Year celebrations thrown in for fun! The fortnight finished with race1 of the 2010 MyState Financial Triathlon Series at Seven Mile beach and I raced to the win much more comfortably than I expected. The swim was tough but I rode and ran quite well considering! Off to Lorne in Victoria this weekend for the famous Pier to Pub Swim and Mountain to Surf Run. Can't wait!
