Pre-race, I have some time to upload a few pics from race weekend and the past couple of weeks.
The race packet
The portable towel rack and race bike
The obligatory messy race prep room/command center/sleeping quarters
On friday, I had the opportunity to visit a Koala Hospital
An interesting bird was watching our tour
This is pretty much all koalas do
A picture of the start of the swim course
The carbo dinner – first come, first serve – Experience dictates you show up early
A lot of competition in this years pro field – Tim DeBoom(two-time world ironman champion), Tim Berkel(IM Western Australia 08 Champion) , Patrick Vernay(won IMOZ past two years) – The women’s field is just as stacked. Lots of pain this Sunday.
Got the bike racked
Registration(Rego in Australian) Tent – the rain has made it a marsh
The finishers chute – see ya tomorrow evening
I started lifeguarding at another pool in Petersham. The pool is outdoors and a hidden jewel that is not frequently visited, making it an ideal place to get some laps in.
