Children in the war – Every penny counts

Friday, January 14th, 2011
Every penny counts. The charity event for “children in the war” last December in Switzerland, got organized by radio DRS3, SF TV and “Glückskette”. I also wanted to involve myself and made myself available for a personal training day with the highest bidder.

Caroline Steffen is the #1 triathlete in Switzerland and even the world. In 2010, she won four 70.3 Ironman event, got second at the world championship in Hawaii,  and won the world champion in the ITU Long Distance. Caroline Steffen lives in Australia, but is coming back  for the summer months in Switzerland. Caroline Steffen takes during their stay in Switzerland exclusively for ‘Every penny counts’ time to meet you for a private workout. Learn from a real professional, how they prepared themselves mentally and physically for their extreme performance. Learn what it takes to be among the best.

96 offers were received. I want to say thank you to the family Utz from Langnau for the highest bid of 1’196 .- Swiss Franks –  the full sum will be credited “for children in the war”. I’m glad to pass some of my knowledge and experience onto you. 

C ya in the Swiss summer.

Flooding in Queensland

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

No, we don’t have any crocodiles or snakes in our unit and not just because we live on the 4th floor …

Thank you for all your mail full of worries about the current floods in Queensland. We’re fine and we’re fortunately not affected by the disaster. The floods afflict most of the people in the region Bundaberg QLD, which is located about 300km north of Mooloolaba. It seams to be a majore topic in the Swiss newspapers and media, but dont forget, the area of Queensland is approximately 45times bigger then Switzerland.

Nevertheless, even here on the Sunshine Coast, in the past few weeks we had unusual weather with lot of rain. It hasn’t affected my training at all, just some sessions had to be done on turbo, too dangerous to train on the road (the Australians are getting a little bit crazy in the car when it’s raining once).

Cheers Xena
