    IM WA 2020

    We always get a hire car from Perth Airport - so we always have transport for Busso. We've been doing AirBnB each time now that we go.
  2. I have entered both Port Mac and Cairns IM - I'm happy there is a date - enough to keep me motivated, and even though it's only 2 weeks apart I am not going to complain like most people of Facebook . .... and if it doesn't work out and it gets cancelled -- who knows. Looks like Australia and NZ will lift some restrictions in the next 2 months
  3. In QLD Riding and running as normal - although I'm picking quieter roads - as I don't want any aggro from "cabin fever" drivers Swim - in a large creek that is on private property and also 40mins to Hervey Bay Gym - I'm set up at home - so no change there Just no races for awhile
  4. Wonder when we will hear about Ironman Cairns 2020

    My hubby works for a company that has foundries in China. One of the guys over there rang him last night ( from Shangdong Provence )-- which is 1000km away from Wuhan. They are all 90% back at work - they all still wear masks and everyone gets their temperature checked 3 times a day. He is surprised that Australia hasn't taken more action. Also then talking to someone that had his sister return from overseas -- at every international airport, she was checked for her temperature before being allowed to pass through.

  6. Was a great race --- great race with great friends. Well organised as usual and the weather gods shined a light on Goondiwindi - with no rain and no heat.. Had a fantastic tailwind on the 2nd lap bike back into town ( 1st time since I've done them since 2014 - usually a headwind ) Looking forward to see what 2021 brings ✅
  7. I was always Mizuno Waver Riders -- went to podiatrist in Brisbane and he suggested Asics Roadhawk as it has a lower heel to toe . My hubby wears Nike Pegausus - he has high arches and also orthotics

    Busso 2019

    I found the bike to be really hot and blustery winds. I felt like I was going to vomit so I just rode within myself so I could finish . About the last 90km I was having double vision so I just rode so I could finish the bike ( it was weird seeing two of everything ) I thought I was try “ run “ 10km and then walk the rest - when I managed that - I thought I would run 2 laps and then walk the rest - after 2 laps I was starting to feel ok so I just kept running. saw about 9 people spew up on the run and a few sitting down having a rest - so I wasn’t as bad as they were feeling .
