Time has just been flying, I can't believe that it's Tuesday Wednesday already!

When the results came through, I did fulfill the final two goals as well - the sad placing of 35th (out of 37 finishers) meant that I was neither last in my age group, nor last placed Australian.

I'm happy!

Bob and I managed to escape for a quick Thai meal at Mon's in Darby St on Saturday evening (!early) and I gobbled up stir fried octopus, a clear vegetable jungle curry and a larb (Thai salad) with lots of rice. Although Bob was uncharacteristically full, I dragged him across the road for gelati. I was still hungry.

The elite race on Sunday was exciting, however the high attrition rate and slow times were testament to the difficulty of the course. It was a modified version of the Age Group route, with a 2.5km run lap and an abbreviated 6 lap cycle course. Young Aussie Leon Griffin put up a valiant effort and was 2nd off the bike, although was run down on the final run leg.

Presentations were held that evening at the local Panthers Leagues Club, and although the auditorium was a good venue the need to sign in 1,000 guests, many of whom did not speak English nor understand the strange Australian licencing laws was not a wise move.
