An update from paradise


I thought the image was appropriate, as I the Hurt Locker is where so many of us will be placing ourselves in a few days…


Morning, afternoon or evening, wherever this may find you. I should be fully back up and running tomorrow, but here is a quick rundown of whats gone on in the last few days…

Sea swimming over tropical reef on the swim course, including the famous “espresso bar in the sea” where we had espresso today, bobbing in the ocean.

Biking on the route after ACSA attempted to destroy my bike. Nobody defeats Kratos and he is running smoothly. The Urban Ninja wheels are handling like a dream in the wind here too, so far. Nothing to cry about as a winter spent riding in the Cape winds have seemingly got me happy.

Running far away from people. Staying 10km out of town means quiet roads and peaceful lunches without 500 screaming, nervous athletes around. Quite a few of the pro’s are staying here too, for obvious reasons. Pro’s are everywhere and just another part of the action.

Chilling out to the max, sleeping 10 hours a night to catch up on traveling around the world to get here.

That is about that. Pictures, video and a full update tomorrow.
