Robyn's E News 9 April 2012

Hi All,

Do hope you are all enjoying your Easter long weekend. I know many are taking the opportunity to get out and about. Still others are adding new dimensions to their training. Those heading to Port Mac for Ironman Australia are putting in the big kilometres with only a few weeks to go before race day.

We have our Kerran Mudgway Memorial Club Championships taking place this Saturday at Lake Bennett. The course has been inspected & some additional spots have been offered to our members who were on the waitlist.

1. Did you spot the “addition / edition” error in the last E News? Oops.
2. All for charity: On April 15 Chrissie Wellington will run the Paris Marathon, hop on her bike and make her way over a 600 mile route to the U.K. at which point on 22 April 22, she'll run the London Marathon.
3. Checking the Cairns list, we appear to have at least 20 members lining up for the 2.80.20 and two in IM Cairns.
5. Half a dozen of you have signed up for 2013 IM Melbourne.
6. Bali International Triathlon course maps are up. Bike leg has gone back to the original course used in the very first Bali race (that was the one where they built the bike racks from bamboo!)
7. Haydn Whitty and Trevor Moses are competing in Sydney on Sunday. If you, or someone you know, are competing away we would love to hear from you. 8. Entering an away event? Make yourself easier to find by entering your suburb as DARWIN. Event commentators are also likely to mention someone from Darwin (as opposed to, say, Ludmilla or Gunn) which in turn helps build our profile interstate and overseas.

… your Easter egg remains on ice and uneaten
… you have wondered what to do with all your race number bibs
… your partner is looking forward to the day when you will slow down and just run marathons

Safe training,
Cheers, Robyn
