Busselton 70.3 Weekend

posted in: Triathlon Racing | 0
20160430_075535aWhat a weekend that was! On the Saturday we had arranged an early morning sea swim which turned into a some games in the water with some relays to keep everyone relaxed - help with water confidence and have the desired effect of getting prepared for the next day. After the swim the group immediately set off on a spin around the lanes in Busselton and thanks to some awesome navigating we to to see a few dead-ends and some building sights.  Oh the group was treated to a stunning rendition of the Bare Necessities of Life from Team Stack! 20160430_083520aThe ride was good natured and again allowed everyone to relax pre-race. In the race we had many of the WA based F4L Triathlon Coaching Team competing.  Some doing their first ever 70.3... others going for personal bests... some taking part in various relay legs and There were some stunning performances from the Team and I am mega proud of each and everyone of them.
