Australia day and triathlons

I have started to make the froglets boyfriend a quilt for his 21st birthday.  I found at my guild meeting a Bali pop that seemed just perfect.  the froglet was rather delighted with my choice.
 Today was not only Australia day but it was also my triathlon and the noisy ones first triathlon!  The morning was perfect, sun was shining and the temperature spot on for a great event.

The outdoor pool at MSAC is really nice to swim in, I did the long course again with my best buddy 300m swim, 9km ride and 3km run.  I certainly haven't been running for the last 2 months with a sore foot but was very pleased with my efforts. My time this year was just a few seconds slower than last years time.
 The noisy one did the short course, 100m swim, 3 km ride and 1km run.  Of course she blitz the swim, did the most graceful dive of the day!  then looked the part on the bike... unfortunately she felt rather nauseated by the end of the ride and did the Aussie thing and had a good old fashioned chunder as she ran out of transition.  A bit of a walk and she came good to run home strongly.
I'm very proud of her for having a go, shes been my biggest supporter at my triathlons for the past 4 years I have dragged her out of bed at ohmygodisthatthetimeoclock! She enjoyed the event and I think she is considering doing the medium course next year (she will be overtaking me soon!).

I hope that you all had a great Australia day... I just popped out the front of my house to watch the local councils fireworks, lucky I don't have to travel to get a good view!
