Hey, No Running – Surry Hills, NSW, Australia

Dropped off the courier equipment and uniform today and got a call an hour later with a lifeguard job. Lifeguard activities will start out at two different pools in Marrickville. I have visited both of them and they are chill. It is relatively easy to get to the pools by bicycle because there is a bicycle expressway for most of the journey. Sydney suburbs are full of roads and pathways that are marked as being primarily bicycle or bicycle shared use. These bicycle routes allow you to bike more freely without having to worry as much about pedestrians and cars. This makes commuting much safer and faster. Since I got a bike 3 months ago, I have put around 700 miles on it and plan on stepping up the miles as I get back into Ironman Training.

In the morning, I went to Bondi to get some solid reading time in. Bondi is a great place to chill, check out the wildlife, and get things sorted.

Oh! Enjoy the lifeguarding. Sounds fun. And Bondi is a great place to chill and relax. There’s a little surf N turf place there that I would sit at and just watch the local culture flare. Hope you’re having fun! Good luck! I was always a fan of Hyde Park, but that was because it was decorated for Christmas, had the giant chess set, and was walking distance from my hotel. Hope ya have fun living large in Sydney.

Hi Darran!

Have fun as lifeguard. I always thought that would be a great job!
