On January 15th the 7th official Two Bays Trail Run took place. The distances on offer were the 28kms and the 56kms, and as always there were plenty of Nuna participants and supporters there for this great event. Goose gives a detailed and very well written account of the popular event.

PARENTAL WARNING: Do not attempt the amount of IRONMAN and other racing that Marky Mark has done in the past year or so, unless you are absolutely having a mid-life crisis, do not work full time, some other stupid reason or all of the above. Seriously, this can be a dangerous sport, and the IRONMAN distance requires a healthy body, sharp mind, lots of support from those around you and finally, a deep respect for the race.

Now for The Summer of Mark... The sequel!

Well at the time it seemed like a good idea for Harrison to throw himself in the deep end with this triathlon business. He had a good few months of training under his belt, so how hard could it be? Well we haven't had a member do a half ironman as their second triathlon ever for a number of years. He did remarkably well and we all know how promising he is with his dedication to training and a podium in his first sprint distance triathlon two weeks prior to this event. This is a good read.

Frogman Challenge... Where to start. Chris Moore tends to be drawn towards events that are slightly different from the norm. He enjoys anything that will be a challenge, but an event that is comprised of run-swim-run-swim-run-swim-run-swim-run-swim-run-swim-run (and that’s just the sprint format) certainly caught his attention. NO RIDING, what a great event format! This race is also completed in teams of two where you need to complete each leg with your partner. Read on to hear how the day played out.

Once upon a time, 6 Aussies and a Pom decided it would be fun to race the cross triathlon world championships. The distances are practically the same as an Olympic distance tri, shouldn’t take much longer than that right? The Pom even thought the trail run should be easy given he’d run a 100km solo event a few months back? A few of the Aussies thought they’d been smashing the TT bikes and that’d transfer easily into the mountain bike right? They were all wrong, the cross tri sucked the life out of them!! So how did it all unfold? Read on!!

The question this week from a member is "how do I get faster without doing any more swimming, biking or running?" A trick question? No, most certainly not. There are a number of 1 percenters in triathlon that can add up to a chunk of time savings. Read the full article to hear how he elaborates on this problem.

Rumour has it that our Nuna MasterChef Melissa Quintal will take out the Club Best Banana Bread award. This competition will take place at the Barefoot Bowls Nuna Xmas Party on 11th December. If you think you've got the banana bread to win, bake it and bring it Sunday week. We will slice it up, and Colin "Jock" Blackley will taste test all participant's bread. He won't know who has baked each one as they will be anonymous, however he has insisted on tasting them with a coffee in hand.

Melissa has disclosed her recipes for the following delicacies that everyone enjoyed hoofing down after the first Gatorade Race this month. Enjoy!

Stricko's first half ironman is an interesting read. He smashed his goal of finishing in 6+ hours which is an awesome achievement for someone who has been in the sport for 2 years. Shepparton half ironman is a club favourite event and Stricko highly recommends it. We are sure to see more of him this season. I wonder what his next goal is.

If you love being scared half to death, a mountainous challenge and a view from the top, multiply that by 4, then think about 4 Peaks for next cup weekend. This event just keeps Ajax going back for more. You can run it, walk it, do one mountain or all 4! You won’t be disappointed by the views, the sense of comradery or the challenges.

Maree writes a personal account of the long term goal that her and Narelle Kear made to complete their first Olympic Distance Triathlon. The course is well described as she writes her step by step experience which includes other club members. It seems many members have signed up for the Noosa 2017 event as it is one of the best social races to participate in.

Ah swimming, the most frustrating leg of the triathlon caper. Countless times you hear people say "I've worked so hard on my swim leg, and then I did a race and I was no faster". The Daddy has asked himself this same question over the years! It's probably been the last 3-4 years of doing the sport that he has seen some improvement and consistency in his swim times. Read further to see his answer to this problem.

Aidan is one of our club's experienced IRONMAN athletes, and he and Luke Ismail (past club president) flew to Hawaii to watch and support their great friend and fellow Nuna member, Meagan Harvey, compete in the world championships. When you speak to Aidan, he sells the holiday and race so well. He will inspire you all to either race, visit or support Hawaii in this following article.

Nuna Trail RATS Regine Vandenberg, Talia Goddard, Steven Goossens, and Matt Syer (late inclusion for Andrew Noordhoff) completed the 100km trail event as a team. Hopefully more members will join forces in future to do this event as they appeared to have so much fun in this well written race account.

Russell Saunders describes his personal 100km journey on the trail. He went back, in tip top shape, to face some demons from the previous year and through fierce determination, nailed the event.

Mal Joseland achieved a personal best Half IRONMAN record on a very difficult course in a pressured world event environment. He has improved significantly and many people are very interested in his story, and just how he managed to seemingly cruise the Mooloolaba course to result in a top 20 position in his age group.
