Jon competed as a solo competitor in the Winter Challenge today, and these were the best photos I got - hopeless huh! I guess when you are busy keeping kids entertained (and out of the river), either the flash-past of the person we are supposed to be supporting happens a bit to fast, or the excitement of actually seeing him is so great, that I fail to remove the camera from my pocket - either way it was a bit lame and I am disappointed in my performance. Conversely, Jon performed well, and his recent binge of training saw him strongly through the first 3 legs (run, mtn cycle, road cycle), then he was hampered by the fact that he only started (and finished) his kayak training on Thursday, and, he was to be captaining a bathtub. Despite this he did well overall and finished in around 5 hours.
In other news, I've been sick since Tuesday and so has Zali. After a few days of mooching around the house she discovered the joys of being able reading in various places (like watching Jett do a swimming lesson, or as pictured here, waiting for daddy to return on the kayak leg) and has subsequently and somewhat obsessively devoured 5 'chapter' books in a couple of days (of course I'm the one sitting here with eye strain from watching an entire season of Dexter in less than 24 hours). heh.
