innocent bystander

Yesterday I stood and watched Cookie in her first triathlon. When she emerged after the swim leg there were behind her still in the lake only two women and one swan. However I can report she blitzed the two transitions, the cycle leg, and the run leg.




Later I was watching the ABC News and this time it was not I who was the innocent bystander, but my lovely lady wife. The item was about the Canberra High School reunion, and Jenny somehow worked her way into the background when everyone else had left.

She claimed to be unaware of the cameras. Hmmm.
This was the family's best accidental TV coverage since my appearance at the Melbourne Marathon, watching on St Kilda road, 13 months ago.


  1. Congrats to Cookie (and Jenny!). Looks like Cookie takes after me in tri swim legs (not drowning is a good swim).

  2. Well done Cookie! The runners will always reign :)
