Convicts and Wenches 2015 - the 50km event
You know what they say - there's only one thing harder than running a 50km trail race ... ... and that's crewing for it. And yes they  do say that.  I heard them. So this was Kim's (and Bec's) big weekend as they'd both entered the Convicts and Wenches 50km...

Things you don't want to read ...
So I purchased some new software for the Tasmanian Sea Canoeing Club's website yesterday to allow us to automate and simplify the payments process and updating of members details (yes, although no longer Commodore, I am still looking after the website). I'v...

Don't argue with the Bridge ...
Some things just aren't fun, no matter how you spin them. Crashing into the Tasman Bridge on your bike is one of those things ... It was just one of those unfortunate accidents ... a combination of strong winds blowing down the river, a metro bus going past...

Jinxed
I will confess to creating a lot of my own problems in life, however I do also think I have a pretty good case for thinking I'm jinxed. For example, when I go out riding, and I end up struggling up hills in a puddle of pain - well that's my fault for being ...
