World city photos and plush toys - 19:42
A resource that could be rather cool/useful,
World City Photo Archive
collects photos of cities all over the world, have a look, kind of cool.
On the scary plush toys front, one can find plush
stranger yet plush toy
items and others on the site have eyes. I am sure all children want a plush
toy tampon with eyes staring back at them...
2004 Triple Triathlon - 11:32
Triathlon is held every year in Canberra, the event consists of three off
road triathlons back to back spread all over Canberra. Starting at 06:00am for
teams or 05:30am for soloists in Lake Ginnenderra in Belconnen and finishing
around 8h30m later for the fastest teams and 15 or so hours later for the
slower competitors. Arguably far more challenging mentally and physically than
an iron man triathlon (more transitions, mountain biking and mountain running,
etc) for the solo entrant, summiting 10 of the higher trig points around
Canberra and on the whole a fantastic day out.
I enjoy doing all three bike legs in a team, in
2002 I did three bike
legs in a team of 6 (thus in the team of 9 mixed category),
last year I was in a team
of three men. This year I again competed in a team of three, our team did
pretty well, and had a fun day out there, finishing in 10h11m we were
reasonably fast too. I have uploaded a
report with photos from
the day of our team and other competitors. Lots of fun for everyone involved,
even the solo competitors out there for over 10 hours enjoy the race.
