Let the games begin! The team at Crouch Amirbeaggi have set themselves a big goal this year – to raise money for the Smiling for Smiddy charity to help fund cancer research whilst doing their first ever triathlon – The Noosa Triathlon.
The team consists of Nick Crouch (“Crouchy”), Shabnam Amirbeaggi (“Shabby”), and John McInerney (“Bags”).
“There’s a few challenges here,” says Shabby. “I can’t swim very well and until Sunday, I had never been beyond the point where my feet couldn’t touch the sand.”
The team name is “Swim o Shabby” (“SoS”). Crouchy and Bags are both confident that they will finish with record PB’s (1.5km swim, 40km ride, 10km run). Shabby just wants to make sure she doesn’t drown doing the first leg of the race.
The team started training today with a 1km ocean swim, participating in the Cole Classic at Manly Beach.
Follow the journey of SoS through the year as we approach 1 November 2015 when team SoS takes on Noosa, and please show your support for cancer research by donating.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
