Singapore 70.3

Thursday, March 26th, 2009

Hi all,

Well it was my second race of the season with a great start in Geelong in Febuary, I was really looking forward to racing with some of my freinds and team mates.

Aex had done a fantastic job with the Team and getting us all ready and organised,it was great to have such support as the last four years I have been alone and left to fend for myself,so it was a nice change! eat at the expo

The Bike Boutique and Avia stand looked great at the expo, I hung out there for a while even having a go on the new treadmill which was the nicest I have ever run.. I think I will have to get myself one!

Unfortunately the race didnt go to plan, write to you from my hotel room in Singapore still in pain and still stinging and itchy!!Sound terrible?…well i guess it was!

I was stung by a jellyfish of some kind right under my arm pit today during swimer the first turn bouy!

I got onto the bike not knowing why it was so so painfull,but hoped it would go away after some time!

How ever I didnt know I was allergic to them,and soon into the bike I found my right arm swollen,along with my neck and tongue,and it got worse as I went.

I tried to punch through, i stopped for some vinegar to splash on my arm hoping it would do the trick!

I continued to try and complete the last lap opf the bike out still only 5 minutes down and in 4th,I can still win if I can run!I know i was running well and all i would have to do was try and get through it!

But with the swelling in my neck and tongue got worse, and go the better of me.

I couldn”t breathe and felt extremely nauseous,ready to be sick I stopped on the side of the road. Unfortunately it was day over for me ,I am very disappointed but I know there are no Jellfish in Port and I have a wetsuit to protect myself thankgod!

I look forward to two weeks time and the biggest race so far of the season,I know i have bigger jellyfish to fry!

Thanks for your continued support,

Subic Rocks My World!

Monday, March 2nd, 2009

I must admit when I asked a couple of ex TBB members what Subic was like,there were mixed responses.

GB told me it was good and not to expect a plethera of extacurricular activites,but the training was great!!

Ok.. I can handle that I thought…as my life now is probably as interesting as a nursing home.All I do is sleep,eat whinge and train x repeat daily ..lol!

So really how different could it be,other than I won’t have coffee stop distraction in between training sessions or late night movies to fall asleep in! No time for doing stuff outside of training? I think… this wont be a problem!

I did how ever, have an old TBB member say some terrible things about Subic and things you would not want me to repeat,we have nothing to do with this person now,well that’s a lie we have the ability one day to claim her scalp..thanks to the Doc!

What ever negatives were said by this ex member.( ‘New Revoloutionised TBB’ will agree )…boy was she WRONG!!!…

I am sure I am speaking on behalf of all TBBmembers when I say ”Subic we salute you SUBIC ROCKS OUR WORLD!!Becasue the FACT of the matter is this place is our highway to some huge personal,professional and physical gains,we all need to thank this amazing place for allowing us to live here and srtive to be the best we can be!

Subic is NOT boring it has everything you need, and delightful people that meet and greet you everyday.The local Phillippino’s are ALWAYS smiling,just like our very own Maki!Even the police greet us every 2o metres with all the gates we ride/run through,we feel welcomed and we feel like we are accepeted.I know back home we don’t have people opening the doors for us! I can tell you if you said ‘morning’ or ‘thankyou’ to a cop at home in Oz, they would probably arrest you for being a smart ass!

NEWS FLASH !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

One last thing… and this is one of my favorite reasons why Subic rocks…STARBUCKS opens tomorrow at 630am,so guys if you can’t find me that’s where I will be!! hehe

Keep shining Subic cos we LOVE you!
