Jon's 2002 races...
On the 19th April 1998 I borrowed a bike and went in my first Novice Triathlon at Hillarys Beach Park.
I struggled through the 300m swim, made up ground on the 10km cycle, but lost a lot of time working out what to do in transition (over 3 minutes) and mowed down about ten runners on the 3km run.
All in all a lot of fun and easy distances with the possible exception of the swim, and something new!
Total time was 44min 45 seconds. My overall placing was 121st out of 145, and I was the 19th fastest runner out of 145.

3. IRONMAN WA 2004
In 1997 myself, Chris (Canada), Erin M.(another Canuck) and Erin H.(USA), were up at 0400 hours (which isn't easy in Student Village) to be officials at the World Triathlon Championship in Perth, and see Emma Carney beat Jackie Gallagher etc...It was a great experience!!!
Christ rules and cares!, there are only 2 ways to live!
