Recently myself , Colin – Jims Antennas Maroochydore and fellow Triathlon enthusiast Tim – Jim’s Antennas Gympie took part in the first of four ( count them ! ) Triathlons on the beautiful Bribie Island . Just a hop step and jump south from the Sunshine Coast Bribie Island is a great place for an event of this type. The weather turned out to be beautiful ( after some dubious days during the week ) . For those of you who don’t know , a Triathlon is made up of three legs . Swim , Bike and Run.
For the modest 300 meter swim the venue is the passage between the island and the mainland , this has an excellent current which helps to carry the swimmers at a fair pace . In fact it was so powerful that most of us overshot the exit and probably added an extra minute or two in trying to get back to the shore in order to run back to the transition area !
On land the terrain is flat, so ideal for a fast 10 k bike ride around the picturesque streets and back to the waterfront where we transition into a 3 k run alongside the passage , again very attractive scenery with the Glasshouse Mountains in the background .
This event is dear to my heart as it was the first one that I did about three years ago when I started my fitness journey . Keeping fit and healthy is integral to my business . I genuinely feel that if I wasn’t as fit as I am I would not be able to do my work with anything like the same enthusiasm or at the same pace. I would urge anyone involved with Jim’s Antennas to do some kind of physical development or maintenance in order to remain highly motivated in body and soul !
Tim and I finished the event in a little over 40 mins which is a good result at these distances .
After the event I asked Tim what , if anything he would like to change in order to prepare for our next Tri in December . After careful consideration and through clenched teeth he replied ” Diet and exercise !” LOL ….
This year I thought it would be great if I could run in Jim’s Antennas colours so I investigated styles and prices from LOD workwear and found that they supply rashies . So thanks to Matchmaster for their kind sponsorship , LOD and our Franchisors Craig and Jo for helping to get the shirts produced and delivered on time .
