We took the weekend off from lessons and drove 1 hour up to Desaru for the triathlon. Always love road trips and this is a road trip cum triathlon with the trusty bike rack. Ollie slept through the drive. Laogong went to literally test water and we let Ollie had her first swim in the sea too! She loves it! Other than the organiser not informing about the change in location to collect race pack (from one end of the resort to the other end), all was great. The resort was relatively nice. The carbo-loading dinner was good (families eat together with the triathletes!). We all slept early for laogong's race the next day.
