Well we made it back to Tauranga, obviously. Back at Trevor and Di’s. You know, this wild kiwi uncle/sponsor.
You see, there was a race that went on yesterday. The Port of Tauranga Half Ironman to be exact. The hubs was planning on racing this a while back and so was Trevor. But do to an unexpected injury, poor Trevor had to change his plans. What was this Wild Kiwi to do? Recruit is what he was to do. And because this race was going to be a “test” for the hubs’ knee, he gladly volunteered to do a relay and support the WILD KIWI TEAM.
The good thing was he had not registered as a pro yet. And in fact, the relay team was under a different name, so this was a totally NO PRESSURE UNDERCOVER race. Go out and see how the knee feels after some solid training.
Jack, a good family friend and true KIWI rugby boy, took on the swim portion while the hubs completed the bike/run. The rest of the crew cheered and smiled from the sidelines.
And now, I’ll let the pictures explain the rest………
A post race smile and happy face. Now that is a good site to see!
And I think we’ve found a cure for all knee injuries….more GF Burger Fuel!
So there you have it, a well excuted undercover training session and one dominating kiwi team. It was fun being able to cheer on everyone without the worry of the outcome. Good fun and one SOLID KNEE!
Back to Christchurch via ferry and road trip tomorrow. Till then…..
