  1. Is that the one you crashed into the back of me 3 weeks ago? I still have the bruise on my thigh. Be good to see the new one with you staying upright.
  2. Not much roll down except for a couple of the younger age groups. I think the 30-34 males went down to 15th. Even the extra female spots didn't roll far. No luck for Mr or Mrs Flower. I really enjoyed the race. The conditions were very good for a good fast race. I saw only 1 big pack on the bike. Pretty happy with my 5:00 to come 9th in 55-59. I would have preferred a 4:59 and 8th as a guy in my age group came past in the last 500 mtrs. The old legs could not respond. Still wouldn't have got me a spot. Those boys were 20-15 minutes up the road. Bloody impressive.
  3. I'm in. Do they have a lucky draw prize?

    For those who have not met me or Flanman. He is the tall one on the left and I am very close behind him 😀

    We are not sure. They said there were protests to be dealt with.

    Foz, I wear Bondi 6s. As you know I need the support for my dodgy Achilles. I can lend you a pair of my 'used' ones (size 12) if you want to test them out.

    No. It is in the regatta. So plenty of space in the out and back. There are also little buoys every 10 metres to guide the way. The only trouble is that sometimes you cop a little buoy in the noggin (can I say that these days).

    Great race today. The highlight being me and Flanman being the last two standing for the major prize in the Lucky Draw. Lucky for me I was the last one standing :-). I had a solid race with a 2:00:41. Would have liked to do 42 seconds faster. I was 6th in my age group and Mrs F was 5th in her age group, so the Flower people were very happy at the end of the day. Thanks for all the support out there. Great to see other Tranny's racing. But most of all a big thank you to the organisers. They are all volunteers. Not an event company. Can't think of many triathlons of this size and importance still put on by just volunteers. We need to keep supporting them and their sponsors.

    Mr and Mrs Flower are in. We are Not registering on Saturday afternoon. Not keen on a long drive on Saturday. Need to rest up to make sure I can beat Flanman
  10. Hi Paul, I have been bit busy with work so sorry it took me a few days to reply. My Dad lived at Lake Cathie ("cat-eye") for about 15 years. He loved the place. Nice and quiet and close to the Bowls club. There is a Woolworths at Lake Cathie and a few other shops so it has everything you need. Staying there in IM week was fine. It was a lot quieter than being in town (I like that). It took about 20-25 minutes to drive in to Port. Not too bad, but that section for Lake Cathie to Port Golf Course is a bit of a pain when you have to do it a few times in the week. If the price is right then I would have no issue with staying there. If you have a car and like it a bit quiet then it is perfect. I hope that helps.

    They have been interesting matches to watch. Momentum can change very quickly in the games. Be good to see a 3-3 match up for the last game. By the way did you see the press conference with the GM from the Warriors crying about KDs Achilles injury. Seemed a little over the top.
  12. Agreed. I saw there was another death in a US 70.3 on the weekend. Insurance companies will be getting nervous with swim safety in IM races
  13. I have. Hard for me to comment about the old Mrs F. She was very focused on her netball and that includes the admin side of the local association. She seemed to not mind me doing Ironman but took little interest. The new Mrs F liked to run and then decided to get involved in triathlon as she got bored watching me at races. Now I am training hard to keep in front of her (just).
