While Willy Dolphin die-hards were getting used to early wintry weather, Willy Dolphin triathletes Andrew Featherstone and Dan Wade headed north to Byron Bay for a short-course triathlon:

1.5k swim 40k ride 10k run

“Heavy rain didn’t stop competitors swimming in the warm waters of Byron”, reported Feathers.  “Riding  to Lennox Heads with fantastic rain forest in the background, and finishing off with a run in ankle deep mud.”

Life changes. Byron Bay. May 2013.

Life’s slippery.
Party time
Life’s a party. Feather’s gives the thumbs up.

Recovery was at the Beach Hotel where all injuries were forgotten and many stories told!
