Inspired by his recent forays into triathlon, Forbes set out to conquer this year’s Great Ocean & Otway Classic Ride in April. He took on the tough 60kms event, which winds through the “undulating” and iconic Great Ocean Road.
Forbes has embraced his newfound passion with gusto, and it’s safe to say completing this course would not have been possible without plenty of well planned training sessions. He reports having a wonderful day out, with perhaps more particular enjoyment of the downhill sections.
The team at The Wealth Mentoring Group are immensely proud of his efforts and can’t wait to see what the next challenge is going to be! We think Forbes has proved, once again, that planning is the key to success!
After all the fun of last year, the team decided we had no choice but to once again tackle the Australian Corporate Triathlon! We competed again in the relay event, each team member completing a 400m ocean swim, 10km road cycle or 4km run leg. And this year we also expanded, to include a partners team!
Melbourne turned on an exceptionally hot Autumn day for us, with the temperature rapidly climbing up into the 30s, so just getting to the start line took some doing (especially for those of us with a young “cheer squad” in tow!). Competition between the teams was fierce, with the addition of the partners’ team only stoking the fire, but it was fantastic to see everyone stepping up and putting in their all. It was a wonderful day out, working with our team towards new challenges and new goals. Who knows what 2020 will bring?!
We love bringing the same team energy towards everything we do, working with our clients to achieve their goals too!
The team at The Wealth Mentoring Group recently turned our focus towards a completely new challenge, taking on the Smith Family Corporate Triathlon Relay Race! Competing in two teams of three, each team member took on the hefty responsibility of completing one of a 400m ocean swim, 10 km road cycle, or 4 km run leg. As the day grew closer, the spirit of friendly rivalry grew ever stronger, competing equally with the growing fear of the unknown! Although our focus was perhaps more on the tapering rather than the training, we all smashed our goals and enjoyed an amazing bonding experience that facing your fears together can bring. We enjoyed a fantastic day out, some of us more than others, and can’t wait to see if we can produce a “personal best” in 2019. It’s amazing what you can achieve if you set your sights on a goal and work towards it!
