On 24 March 2013 I completed one of my bucket list ambitions, an Ironman triathlon.
Thanks to a number of donors I managed to raise $1,580 for the red cross in the process. Thanks to all of you who donated.
Here are some pics from the event, which I managed to complete in 15 hours, 9 minutes and 8 seconds.
It was a great day, lots of adrenaline and a massive sense of achievement. Also the hardest 7 hours and fifty minutes ever on a push bike riding into 35 km/h head winds, and a tough way to run a marathon for the first time.
Some special thanks to my wife and family for their patience and support over 12 months of preparation, to Bayside Triathlon Club athletes (esp IM athletes) and coaches Rob McNamara and Clint VB.
