Do you have a mate you've been trying to convince to get along to a triathlon session in the hope that they might love it just as much as you do?

With our membership season already open for new members it's a great time of year for those sitting on the fence to bite the bullet and become a TA member as you get your June 2019 membership as a 'bonus' and are covered all the way until June 30, 2020. So you can go full steam ahead knowing that you are sorted for the upcoming season.

With insurance covered whilst racing and training, our partners also offer a number of benefits to our members that you can take advantage of!

A big thank you to everyone who participated in our annual feedback survey on our latest Triathlons series. There was a large number of responses, demonstrating a high-level engagement from our members/race participants and a shared commitment to improving the Club’s support of racing in southern Tasmania.

While many of the responses were very complimentary and appreciative, a number of them contained excellent, constructive feedback. This feedback came from a broad spectrum of participants, including first-timers, non-club members, interstaters, and some very experienced local triathletes.

With the Triathlon South Committee currently engaged in planning next season’s events, we are already working towards incorporating a number of the recommendations on how to further improve communications and the race day experience for participants and supporters.

We are all really looking forward to the new season. Hope you are too!

Mel Hill loves triathlon - and to give back to the sport that has been a huge part of her life, she decided to become a Technical Official to see the sport from a different perspective.

Last season was her first year as a local TO and she was stoked to be part of the Dare to Tri Women's Only Triathlon which really encourages women to have a go. She also officiated at the ITU Devonport Duathlon but her goal is to keep developing her skills and knowledge and would love to be part of a World Championship event in the future.

For anyone who wants to become a TO, Mel suggests to keep up to date with any change of rules, encourage all competitors in your role as TO and simply enjoy the experiences on offer!

Failure is an option
The thing some people do not realise about doing an Ironman race in particular is that failure to finish is always possible. Failure to start is very common because it is such an intimidating undertaking. It certainly scared the heck out of me. I have been one of those 15% on average who got that awful DNF against my name but not this time. The Ironman distance triathlon, and to a lesser extent the half distance, is an adventure and as such the result is not guaranteed no matter how good one’s preparation. The thing that really hammered home to me yesterday was how good it was to be sharing the adventure with mates – both old and new. Each individual has to go through their own doubts and pain and overcome them as they are able, but to share some of the journey and experience with training mates Peter McKenna and Aaron Hilder was the best. Of course, Peter McKenna from Try A Tri has been my swim coach and has taken me on a very long journey of improvement. Mark Blake was again a source of encouragement and steadiness while teaching me how you are supposed to run after a hard ride. On my blog at ivanwatching.com I have put a full race report from a very personal perspective.
The heroes who are our encouragers deserve huge kudos. It must be really tough to be at as many points as possible for the sake of a few seconds just to give those special words that make such a difference to our performance. It was a very long day. I just wonder sometimes how messy I would be without the logistical and emotional support mainly from my Angela. Completing an Ironman is one thing but to support an athlete is just as noteworthy. Finally, the Ironman organisation do take a fair whack of our money but they know how to organise a great event.

Tough day yesterday for all.
Congratulations to Ivan Davis and Aaron Hilder for completing this FIRST Ironman.
Congratulations also to Mark Blake (aka Blakey) for bringing another one home in great style.
Big thanks to Peter Wheatley for his massive support yesterday after making the difficult decision to defer his race entry to Busselton due to injury.
Further thanks to the WAGS(plus Aaron’s sister and Jack) for the support on the day.
My biggest thanks goes equally to Fleur Grey for putting up with my stupid ideas and my insane sister, Susan (and husband Frank (her husband not mine)) for the words of ‘wisdom’, the stunning array of outfits and for flying up from Victoria to stop my head from disappearing completely up my arse on the ‘run’.
All of you that support us, encourage us and keep us on track deserve medals.
