Pink Perfection

OK, so it's not the Gold Coast Marathon, Ironwomen or even the Half Ironman Triathlon, but for many the annual Gold Coast Pink Triathlon marks a significant challenge and worthy hurdle to clear. This all female event is hosted nation wide and encourages participants to compete in an effort to raise money for research towards Breast Cancer.

It's my second year in the running and I'm pleased that I managed to not only beat my time previously, but also come 4th in my age group. A noteworthy achievement for a serious non-sporty type.

But apart from the challenge and fun derived from participating, I swim, bike and run essentially so that future generations don't have to endure the experiences with Breast Cancer that many other female members of my family had to. If I can help achieve that in this smallest of ways, then I consider my self a real winner.

Check out more pics of the event on my Visual Stuff page.

For those wondering about my training strategy, let me just say;  for the other 364 days of the year, I type.

Seriously girls, you've met me, I'm not that amazing. But I did mention to hubby that wouldn't it be good if I could place like that with my writing more often!
