Monday: Travel back to the west coast. Crazy day. Bad weather canceled flight from Connecticut. Took a taxi to New York and flew back from there.

Tuesday: Am about to get on a plane to Sydney for vacation in Australia and New Zealand. Stopping off in Perth and then Busselton for IMWA. I hadn't initially planned on doing this race and am grossly undertrained and still recovering from IMFL, but since I will be relatively close to the race, I've decided to do it. When else would I ever get to do an Ironman in Australia? This is going to really hurt but its going to be awesome. Apart from finishing, my goal is to have faster transitions. I arrive in Australia the day before the race. I can't wait!

Hey again, great to see you're checking out this corner of the world. Apart from a wannabe triathlete, I'm also a helicopter pilot in the Royal New Zealand Air Force. Let me know if you end up near Palmerston North, and I'll tag along on one of your post-IMWA recovery runs. -Pete

Hey Pete,

I'll be checking out both the north and south islands. What's the best way to get in touch with you?

Great. I've been reading your blog for about 9 months now, so it'd be cool to actually catch up. I'm going to be in Christchurch from 18 Dec to 4 Jan; the rest of the time I'll be here in Palmy.

You can flick me a text on 021 026 22 912, email me (peter_familton@hotmail.com) or message me on facebook.

I look forward to hearing how IMWA went!
