Luis is a weird cat. Goes for bike rides starting at midnight. Like 200k ride. 

But a genuine top bloke. 

 

But does he do hill repeats in the rain?

He drafting off me riding my Vespa to the city one day. It was overcast. Does that count?

Athlete's Guide says the 70.3 run is 21.7km... making up for the short course in Texas maybe...

Also the run map is slightly confusing... coming out of transition it has the pointing arrow the wrong way (back into transition), and turning left to go against the flow...

Yes I'm being picky :-)

But you can still count it as a PB.

Anyone flying there on Tiger, might want to keep an eye on the news.  The pilots have lodged an application for industrial action commencing Friday.  Figure most competitors will already be up there by then but might affect a few

Coles is very busy. Apart from that, the onslaught hasn’t started yet. I did however, hear an add on the local radio for more vollies. Weather is good during the day but chilly overnight. 

The main act opens tomorrow at 10am so I will be down early to Register after a ride then maybe find some “bargains” .  

I’m looking forward to THAT feeling by tomorrow night when the buzz really starts.

Around 8.30am to 9 on Friday for the Trannie swim catch up at the swim start. Keep an eye out for either the black or the white Trannie caps. Don’t be shy to say hello  I will be there, hoping Greenpeace doesn’t roll me back in  .

I've been here since Sunday and been to Coles every day.( I know, I'm old and forgetful. LOL)

The locals look like they're stockpiling for a nuclear attack. Five deep at every checkout. Unbelievable.

Shelves have been cleared of bananas and sports drink.

They know the onslaught is about to begin.
