Well NZ has really turned on the weather…not! Howling winds, driving rain, rough seas and a sprinkling of sunshine. It is still a very cool vibe here in Auckland though. I’ve never seen so many fit people wearing pointy hats in one place. Shared a shuttle from the airport with and Jodie Stimpson and Anne Haug when we arrived. Saw the elite triathletes coming back from their bike course recce under police escort this morning.
The girls (Sarah Allen, Amanda Wilmer and Ailanore Harper) and my twin bro (Nathan Smith) are all looking good and preparing well. They are out there braving the weather today checking out the swim, bike and run routes. Tomorrow we will have another sea swim in the morning and a final hit out over the run course before settling in to watch the U23 men and women and women’s elite races.
Came across this great little video from Ironman Europe 2012. It’s one of those videos that make you say to yourself ‘this is why we do triathlon’. Love it!
More updates over the next couple of days. See you in a few weeks time. C’mon LFTC at the World Triathlon Championships! Tim (LFTC Coach).
