  1. Ha, not safe. A few years back I put my emergency cash under the insole in my shoe at St Kilda beach while I went for a swim early one morning. Money was gone when I returned.
  2. My family did a day trip to Lady Musgrove Island (just up from Lady Eliot) a couple of months ago. Saw at least 20 turtles, a manta ray and a small reef shark while snorkelling. Turtles great, coral just ok. No lux resort there, just some rough camping so probably not what you are after.

    KT26s were pretty radical when they first came out (1978). I had at least 2 pairs. Don't knock the KT26s.
  4. Whatever you do not do breaststroke. Nothing worse than the person in front of you changing stroke and kicking you in the face. Especially around the buoys.

    The 952 DNS were people who couldn't find cheap accommodation in the area.
  6. Next time I'm leading the World Championship Road Race I'll think about this....
  7. Shaun has gone a little faster in the Melbourne Marathon with a 2.29.22 to lower the Aust M50 Record. His km splits are a pretty bloody regular around 3:28 min/km. Not quite Eliud Kipchoge and his pacing team but I'd still love to have his consistency. And to have his speed would be nice too. https://www.strava.com/activities/2784037539
  8. Average Joe Kiddiefiddler would never have the money to appeal to the High Court. Legal system certainly seems to have more opportunities for the rich to get off the hook.
  9. Wow - flashback there. I have run up Mount Duval a few times when I was in high school. There was a Duval to Duval fun run, Duval High School to Mount Duval. Never managed to get up to the top without walking.
  10. I'm in. I have blown up at the last two 30+ km events. Camps in one, and just plain knackered in the other. I gotta learn to start off at a slower pace. Sand in the last 3-4km of Costal Classic is going to kill me.
  11. In Kurnell tri I did late last year, I was pulled up in transition area pre-race for wearing calf sleeves. Apparently I could only wear them if I was swimming in a wetsuit that covered them. I was tri-suit only so I couldn't wear them but was given the option of putting them on after the swim.
  12. So that's what calamari looks like in real life. I think I can see a tail... I guess there is a tube straight down the middle of them.
  13. Humans and animals living together in nature as one. Isnt it beautiful That is some good footage of the shark just checking out what is floating on the water.
  14. Manly Bold and Beautiful swimmers will be a little more nervous. "We swam a bit more briskly than we normally would." https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-07-02/manly-shark-attack-leaves-deep-gash-on-swimmer/11270280
  15. Chatswood Chase underground carpark. That should stop you poor little feet from getting soggy.
