The Importance of Having A Buddy

In a perfect world, we would all be so confident, motivated and enthusiastic that we wouldn’t hesitate to take on new challenges – physical and otherwise – alone.

This isn’t a perfect world, though, and for many of us, the moral and practical support of a buddy at crucial times can make a huge difference. I speak from (very recent) experience! Having my daughter as my buddy in the recent Port Stephens Elite Energy Triathlon Festival was a game changer, especially in the challenging surf conditions at One Mile Beach.  

Don’t have a friend or family member willing to plunge into the surf or go to the gym with you? Talk to me for some ideas on teaming up with like minded people. 

 Here I am with Maz at the finish line, looking extremely happy.
