Fun race and good prep leading into Ironman Melbourne Asia Pacific Championships. I was racing in the Giant kit for a good friend from Giant South Yarra who had back surgery the week of the event.

Ironman Melbourne Asia Pacific Championships.

With Ironman Melbourne - Asia Pacific Championships (P400- KPR) event next month, March 22. It has been nice to be involved with Mark Bolton and his "ride" towards completing his first Ironman event.

Mark has been at the top of his field in his sporting career playing Australian Rules Football (AFL) and is now running the Ladder Foundation http://www.ladder.org.au/index.php?id=62 that helps youth homelessness in Australia.

Below is the 1st of a series of short clips that I have been lucky to be involved in giving an insight into Mark, his role at Ladder and his ride towards Ironman Melbourne.

I look forward to being on the start line with such a humble person and sharing the experience with him.

220 Magazine

It is always nice to be asked to help out for an article in a magazine. 220 Triathlon Magazine wanted to do a little piece on "my ride" so look out for it on the shelfs in the up coming weeks.

New Year - 2015

Time goes by fast when you are having fun. By now we are back into the full swing of things training wise working on the weaknesses and building on the strengths.

I am still woking out the remainder of the year race wise however the first part will consist of Challenge Melbourne Half followed by Iroman Geelong 70.3. These are fantastic races with quality fields but all within a stones throw from home so it does not interfere with the remainder of the prep for Ironman Malbourne - Asia Pacific Championships held late March.

Christmas was also an exciting time of the year with the birth of Matilda, our first child and it has been a blast spending the past month watching her develop and her personality grow. It still amazes me the entire process how a human can grow inside you then pop on out, knows to start breathing and has an instant bond. Amazing.

The first 4 weeks of the year have been fantastic, enjoyable and if I can order another few rounds of them the year will be rolling in a positive direction.
