Well it seems that the events roll around faster and fast, I guess it means that the season has well and truly started. This weekend I have a two man team entered in the Collie Marathon. This is a really good event and has a very warm and family feel, hence we are all taking our families down to the Collie region for the weekend. When I say all there are two full teams competing this weekend. Clyde and I in one team and the rest of my mates in another.

Clyde and I have decided to split the event as follows:
Road Cycle (27km) - David
Canoe (10km) - Clyde
Swim (1km) - David
Mountain Bike (25km) - Clyde
Run (10km) - David

Anyone that has followed my events for last year will see something strange on this list. I am not doing the Mountain Bike! This is a result of a hip injury to Clyde who was to do the swim and run however the injury has almost completely stopped his ability to run. Hence the reason for the changes. I am sure Clyde will do a great job on the bike using his new Giant XTC2 machine.

The other guys team is made up as follows:
Road Cycle - John, Canoe - Tony (from the Great Southern Team), Swim - Gareth, Mountain Bike - Wayne and Run - Matt.

I will post photos and results next week when we get back. If you happen to be down at Collie this weekend pop over to the ExplorOz vehicle and say hi, Michelle he girls and the dog will be in tow. If you are interested in reading more on this event see


If it's not hurting your not tri'ing!
