My First Tri Try...

Feeling just a tad pleased with myself today. Yesterday I finished my very first Triathlon, and ambulance was required! It was the Frampton's Women's Triathlon, held by the Alice Springs Triathlon Club guessed it, Alice Springs.
It was a small triathlon, 100 metres swim, 5 kilometres bike ride and 1 kilometre run, but it was so much fun. In the photo above I think I am still trying to catch my breath, several minutes after finishing, BUT... I did finish, and I wasn't last either. Happy days! I'm thinking about the next one already.

A Quick Hello...

Thought I'd stop and say hi, and Happy New Year!

I know it has been quiet in here, and I apologise for that. Craft just hasn't been high on my to-do list lately. Perhaps on one of our upcoming 43/44 degree days my cool craft room will beckon ;-).

In the mean time, this was the view from our bumper bar today:
We drove about 400 kms on 4WD tracks around Alice. We went up to Gemtree and the Strangways Range in the north, and then back down the Binns Track through Arltunga to Ross River and N'Dhala Gorge in the east before heading home to Alice. It was a lot of fun!
