Hi guys now it has been quite seem time since I last wrote a blog post, so here goes I will fill you in on my last few months so far which for me have been out of control busy!
So my first race for the year of 2012 was New Zealand Half Ironman where I got 3rd, not a bad start to the year on the podium. What I got out of this race was the realization that after a much needed break there was still some work to be done and I have a few cobwebs to dust out.
The next race on the cards was one I didn’t have originally in mind to do, but the fiancé said I need to go off and race and make some money. So off to the wild west I went for Goondiwindi hell of the west triathlon. I headed out with the boys (Adys and Andrew) for the long drive. I came home with a 2nd place at Hell of the West triathlon, not a bad result but still a little more work to done before Geelong.
So the field was a bit more competitive at Geelong and I hadn’t quiet got my position right on my new Giant yet, but I was there and ready to give it my best shot. I managed a 3rd and was happy with that. I now know where I am at for the rest of a very big and busy season. I have also ironed out my position on the Giant and can’t wait to hit the races in the US.
Next on the agenda was to be the most important day of my life our wedding. The weather was not so nice to us as it was quiet windy and raining most of the day, although for our outside beach ceremony it managed to stop raining for the 30 minutes that our ceremony took place, we were very lucky! Onwards to the reception and for the party to start. Our reception was held at Oskars and everything was perfect. It was such a fun night filled with lots love and crazy dance moves from the Aeromax tri crew! I do know there was defiantly a few sore heads in the morning and maybe not so much training haha. I want to thank everyone for coming and also for all the lovely gifts we received. I would also like to thank my wife for making the day perfect and that you looked amazing xx love you Bel.
So now that everything has gone back to normality for us on the Gold Coast, I have been training hard and will be leaving for the US in a couple of weeks to hit up Oceanside 70.3 race and possibly another one. I am heading to Boulder again to reap the rewards of altitude training. I will be there only for a month as I have a few Aussie races to do in May/June, and then back over to do the rest of the US season.
Anyway onwards and upwards peace out 🙂
