Spent the weekend in Port Macquarie at the Ironman 70.3 race.
Congratulations to all of the crew competing over that distance for the first time and to Clint Kimmins for making the cut for the 70.3 World Championship in Las Vegas next year.
Went for a quick swim at the southern end of The Spit this morning. Looking back at the beach the contrast in the skyline is amazing. Concrete jungle to the south, trees and uncrowded beaches to the north.
I’ll take the view to the north any day…
Snuck out for a look at the Tour de Valley cycling time trial event in Currumbin Valley. Plenty of cool bikes and uncool lycra.
Caught up with Surfer/Lifeguard/Tri(hard)athlete Clint ‘Clipper’ Kimmins on his hard earned smoko break from patrolling the flags at Coolangatta beach today. Watching waves roll through the “office” all day must drive these guys nuts. Picked up a copy of the latest Australian Triathlete magazine on the way home. Has a good write up by Clint (and a few of my pics) about his first Ironman race in Cairns.
Winter on the Gold Coast isn’t too tough. Warm water, offshore breezes and sunshine make for some good beach days. Couple of pics of Chris “Ibis” Bennetts taking advantage of the great conditions this week.
Shot some photos for No Excuses Promotions of the boxing pro-am that they put on at Matrix Boxing Gym in Southport.
