  1. I was diagnosed as a toddler ~40 years ago. Was hard for my mum back then as Gluten free food wasn’t really a thing, especially in Tasmania. When I started eating solids, I was fed weetbix, Toast etc and ended up with severe malnutrition etc. I was in hospital in Tassie for a bit... where they were also feeding me food with gluten..... they couldn’t work out what was wrong. I spent 6 months in the Royal Children’s Hospital in Melbourne until I was diagnosed. As a kid, anything I ate with Gluten in it resulted in severe vomiting and diarrhoea. I still have memories of this. My mum
  2. I was due to fly out to PNG to do Kokoda on Monday last week.. all packed and ready to go. My trip got cancelled on Sunday night. In hindsight it was the right decision..... after an hour of tears. I had trained hard over summer too. On the upside, I went to Broome, enjoyed the sunshine and lazed by the pool for a few days while I was on leave.
  3. ... please tell me you, @Katz and @stickman partied like rockstars! 😂
  4. I flew out to Melbourne for work first thing this am ... 🙂 it wasn’t a good look 😂 thank god all of my other parts are unscathed!
  5. So great meeting you guys! I had an awesome night out! Thank god some common sense prevailed (or I sobered up) before the talked about naked beer half mile happened! 😂 Sunday was a very long day 😊 Stikman def lives up to his name! He was easy to spot spectating 😊
  6. Yep.... my first event since my injury 🙈 am actually super excited 😊
  7. I’ve just bought a new bike to motivate me to ride over winter... I plan to head out to the hills on either Saturdays or Sundays so ur more than welcome to join me anytime... I will be leaving East Perth and ur more than welcome to come and doddle a lap of the river.
  8. I have the Garmin 645 music. It now has the Spotify app on it. Also holds 500 songs. No more having to carry my phone. I pair it with the trex titanium Bluetooth headphones. Trex Titanium is Jawbone technology so sits on the join of ur ears/cheek so you can still hear ambient noise around you. Im loving Spotify. I signed up to the 0.99c for 3 months deal.
  9. On another note.... who is organising the Trannie catch-up in Geelong? Coffee or the after party....
  10. .... it’s so cheap in India to hire your own driver and the internal flights are super cheap too. If your planning on doing the cities,... just arrive in Delhi, get a driver to do the day trip to the Taj and then book local tours when u get there. English is spoken widely. Book a nice hotel (Taj Group) and get their travel desk to book trips with local companies.

    Zwift Run

    https://www.theathletesfoot.com.au/myfit-pod.html I use this too with my iPad. Generally only use it when I’m travelling for work with the treadmill in the hotel gym.
  12. Funnily enough I picked up my phone at the traffic lights to change songs on Apple Music I had streaming through Bluetooth. Motorbike cop tapped on my windscreen. Either way.... I’m well aware of the rules and happily paid the fine.
  13. I also did the same thing... gave up IT and did PT/ Massage for 2 years... was bored and didn’t enjoy having to work odd hours and weekends . I also looked for contracts with immediate starts and made sure I could start ASAP. After the 1st contract, no-one ever questioned my 2 year “career break”...
  14. @hey_burgs is my other favourite..... his insta stories! Even I’m now taking an interest in eucalypts and Australian native flora! https://instagram.com/josh_amberger?utm_source=ig_profile_share&igshid=14w49gd7s9jv0
  15. Someone on here recommended Caro from the Block a few months ago in a similar thread ..... she’s friggin hilarious! https://instagram.com/caroandkingi?utm_source=ig_profile_share&igshid=1o4ofepdcszb9
