OFF TO SHEPPARTON
Tomorrow (Saturday) Max and I are off to Shepparton a 3 hour drive from home. On the Sunday Max is competing in a Half Ironman event (1.9km (1.2 mile) swim, 90km (56mile) bike ride 21.1(13mile) km run. No rests in between just straight out of the water – wetsuit off and bike gear on and out they go. Then off the bike and running shoes on and out they run. It should take him about 5 and a half hours. It starts at 7.00am and the temperature is meant to be about 34 degrees (93 degrees to our American friends) so I hope he isn’t out there much longer than that. Once he completes this race he will be qualified for the Australian Ironman Competition at Port Macquarie NSW in April 2008. This event is double all of the distances he will do on Sunday. If you have ever seen the Hawaiian Ironman event on TV this event is the same distance. He is one fit man – my Mad Max.
I couldn’t ‘not glitter’ – so I just used black and a light green and it didn’t turn out ‘girly at all. I hope they like them – Lachlan’s favourite colour is blue so he should like it.
As for Riley at one month old only his Mum has to like it – so I think I am safe.
