The Tour De BLAF competition was recently held across each of the Boroondara Leisure and Aquatic Facilities, allowing all competitors to experience a small slice of reality as they pedalled relentlessly throughout the 21 day challenge.
Teams formed and bonded- pushing and encouraging each other to achieve fantastic results. There was a lot of fun and banter to be had along the way, as the teams became fiercely competitive. The White team, consisting of Teresa, Robyn, Liz, Aron and Sue Winkler, put in an amazing effort with their consistency and enthusiasm urging one another on, day after day and night after night. They dealt with colds, chafing and tired legs. The girls luckily discovered a secret weapon in gel seat covers, which saved the day and provided enormous relief to the team. Meanwhile, Aron and Andy developed a strong rivalry which grew as the challenge went on. The boys were matching each other day after day - with a fierce determination, until Aron finally proved too strong for poor Andy.
At the end of the competition, new friendships had been built, new milestones had been reached and I think we would all agree that everyone came out as winners. Well done to all those who took part and we look forward to seeing you all next year!
Congratulations to our winners, and we hope you enjoy your massage at Glenferrie Sport and Spinal.
