Fitness, Uncategorized CORPORATE TRIATHLON 14 April 2008

Woke up at 5:30am (!!!!!) on Sunday morning. Why? The Corporate Triathlon! Chris signed up for it through Microsoft, along with a couple of colleagues. Me? eBay didn’t have a team so I didn’t do it 🙁 Not sure if I would’ve anyway.. I couldn’t handled the cycle and run, but the swim? Right in the harbour? I think I’d drown 😉

I was quite content being Chris’ cheerleader, and spent the time jogging all around the Botanic Gardens during the race, so I got a ton of great exercise in the sunshine and awesome weather – it was all good 🙂 Had an absolutely fabulous time being fit and healthy, and feeling totally accomplished, heheheh. I wish this was on every month!


Waiting around at 6am for the rest of the Microsoft team to show up

Gorgeous gorgeous view of the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Opera House and Botanic Gardens.
All this, just less than 5 mins walk from where I live 😀

Walking in under the arch

Parking the bikes for pickup during the race

My man’s bicycle stand allocation

Waiting near the edge of the harbour (where the swim starts)

The Microsoft team!

Chris, walking up to the start of the race. He’s the crazy guy flexing 😉

And the race starts!! Jump straight into the harbour and swim alongside the Opera House..

Chris is swimming in there!

Gorgeous, gorgeous views

Aaaaand the swim part of the triathlon is over! Complete with action shot of (a very happy) Chris 😛

Chilling out after the race

Crashing out on the grass

Soaking in the sun

    Go Chris! I am absolutely useless on Sunday mornings and can’t be bothered to even pour a bowl of cereal, much less swim, bike, and run anywhere. =)

      Haha I know what you mean, it does take willpower! But it was much easier considering it was such a gorgeous day with lovely weather 🙂
