Dalby Triathlon 21Feb21
I kicked things off in the team event doing a 750m swim. Second out of the water to a far superior younger swimmer by about 2 minutes. Kylie jumped on her bike and wore down the lead to return after 20km in front of the other teams. I was then into a 5km run at break neck speed to try to capitalise on the lead that Kylie had given our team. I was sure they were not far behind me so just kept pushing myself through to the end. Only to find that we had extended the lead and found ourselves crossing the line in 1st Place.
Haden Sports Club team has participated in this event for the last 2 years and managed to come 3rd each time. It was a great surprise and at the same time recognition for the amount of training that we have been doing in preparation for the MS Swimathon amongst other events. Thanks again for your support.

Hell of the West - Done and Dusted
The swim was a highlight for many of the club, most ... i'd say all, have never experienced swimming past a rotting carcase before....the court is still out if it was a roo or cow, but it was well past its use by date. Just imagine swimming at full steam and getting a lung full of that....certainly motivates you to swim faster and don't drink the water.
The run was fun, especially seeing the other 'club' members out there and offering their support. It was a little slower than I had wished but with these things, there is always something to learn and improve upon.
I am taking part in the 2021 MS Swimathon, to join the fight against multiple sclerosis.
I am raising funds to show my support and your donation will make an impact to change the lives of people living with MS.
Did you know:
- On average, more than 10 Australians are diagnosed with MS every week
- The average age of diagnosis is just 30 years of age.
- Three out of four Australians with MS are women
Your support will help fund essential services like physiotherapy, service coordination, counselling and symptom management, as well as MS research to look for better treatments and ultimately a cure for the disease.
Please DONATE to support our swim to help ensure no one faces MS alone.
