A little hit out- Noosa Long Course

Monday, February 22nd, 2010

Yesterday, I raced a little local race here in Noosa. It was a half Ironman. The Noosa Triathlon Club kindly gave me a 1 week license so that I could participate. It was an early start, 6 am. We swam in the river and I was very happy to get into the water as I was getting eaten alive by “mossies”!! We had to go around a little island twice. I was in 2nd place for the first lap but then I swam away from my little group and I was first out of the water!!! Luckily I didn’t get eaten by any sharks!!! I would never swim in the river on my own, I’ve heard a lot of stories about sharks but I might be too skinny for them…The ride was 2 laps and it was a great course, except for the cars. The roads were not closed and we had a few cars to share the road with. I felt great on the bike and had a good time. The run was a 4 lap course. I felt fine on the first lap but then the heat and the humidity really started to bother me but I wasn’t the only one. We had 2 aid stations on the run and one of the stations ran out of ice and water!!!
On the last lap, I felt better again and I was very happy to see my little support crew, Astrid, AJ and my brother just before the finish line.
It was a great little event put on by Noosa triathlon Club.
