After we dropped my 16yo son Jack at school on Friday morning we set out for the 355km journey to Goodndiwindi for the Hell of the West Triathlon which has been running since 1989.
I have made this journey 6 times before, raced 5 times before with a year off racing albeit spectating due to a rather silly toe injury sustained in the week before which required stitches in the webbing of my toes and ruled me out of that race 3 days before hand. I was shattered as at HOTW you get awards for 5, 10, 15 etc races in a row unbroken and I would have been at 7 in a row with this race and have got my 5 year award 2 years ago but as usual life throws random things at you sometime and you just have to deal with it and get on with it.
