Yesterday [livejournal.com profile] kirstenfleur and I competed in another mini-Amazing Race Pursuit. There was a bit of a kerfuffle starting the day before when we belated realised that the plans we had made were not in fact going to work - doing these races has become increasingly complicated as our children start participating in Saturday activities!! Fortunately Dean and [livejournal.com profile] kirstenfleur's sister-in-law were able to help out and so we headed off, leaving two children with Dean at home and one child with the sister-in-law at jazz ballet. We made good time into the city, especially considering there was football on, and arrived at our start/finish point at Federation Square roughly half an hour early.

After our very sucessful mini-race I somewhat ambitiously entered [livejournal.com profile] kirstenfleur and myself into the competitive category of this year's Great Amazing Race. The idea was that we had months to train. Naturally we didn't. This was due to a number of things, including both of us managing to injure our knees at different times, children, life and general disorganisedness. I did think about changing our category after my knee injury, but decided, what the heck, let's just go for it. So we did.

Out of the blue I got an e-mail from Amanda, the personal trainer, asking me if I'd seen the Scoupon Amazing Race offer. No, I hadn't, yes, I was interested. It was a promotion for a mini-Amazing Race event being run by the same company but sold entirely through Scoupon and another similar company. Instead of 6 hours it would be 4 and they were running 6 of them on different dates. I promptly bought tickets and e-mailed [livejournal.com profile] kirstenfleur to ask if she wanted to come and partner me and ask which dates suited her. She did, and we settled on the 17th May as being free for both of us.

So way, way back in 2010 [livejournal.com profile] kirstenfleur and I competed in The Great Amazing Race around Melbourne. Read more... )

After competing in the City Chase this year Paul, one of the guys we met during the race, sent me a message a couple of months ago to ask if I was going to compete in The Great Amazing Race in Melbourne. Was I? Hell yeah!! (As it turned out he got 'man flu' and couldn't. Piker.) So I rang [livejournal.com profile] kirstenfleur to see if she'd be interested, and we entered ourselves as team "Truffe". Which is of course French for "truffle" and a vague reference to my inability to describe my job in French. Or any other non-English language come to that.

Yep, that time of the year again. Once more [livejournal.com profile] astrocave and I teamed up to compete in the City Chase, again as "Calm a Llama Down".

So feeling in a slightly better mood this morning I thought about it some more (long commute).
Yes, I'm boring all and sundry )

Which I forgot to put on the rest of the entry because I decided it was too long. Seriously, race organisers, there are more suburbs available than St Kilda and Fitzroy. Sheesh.

After the Urban Max abandoned Melbourne this year, they suggested that we might like to try out the Nokia City Chase instead. So, being a suggestible kind of sheep, I did so and enrolled [livejournal.com profile] astrocave and myself as "Calm a Llama Down" once again.
Very, very long. )
