Sunshine Beach- Australia

Tuesday, November 3rd, 2009

Time flies and I can’t believe that it’s more than 3 weeks ago since I raced Hawaii. After Hawaii we, AJ, Astrid and I got on the plane to Brisbane. After a few nights with AJ’s mum and dad, we travelled up the coast and found a nice little place at Sunshine Beach where we will be staying for the next 6 month. AJ already took off again after only 2 days, for work, so now it’s just Astrid and I hanging out together. She started creche yesterday so that she can be with other little people and so that mum can train. It’s all about getting into a new routine. It’s gorgeous here and the weather’s wonderful at the moment, not too hot and humid yet. There’s the local bike group to ride with, a swim squad and the running is great because the national park is only 5- 10 min. away.
Only after 5 days here on the coast, I got a very sad message. A good friend of ours and my bike mechanic, Tavis Johannsen had passed away in his sleep, only 42 years old. He was so healthy and fit and I find it hard to believe that I shall never see him again. He was the nicest guy, a superstar, always so helpful. I’ll really miss him.
