FUNDRAISER SPOTLIGHT: Eddie
How did you first hear about the RCD Foundation?
I am originally from Melbourne, so each year I would see the Bayside community come together to support such an important foundation. Especially during the annual Connor’s Run.
Has anyone you know been impacted by brain cancer?
I don’t know anyone personally that has been impacted by brain cancer, however, my heart goes out to all the families and friends and unfortunate souls that are impacted by the #1 disease killer of young people.
Why did you decide to participate in the Noosa Triathlon?
After witnessing the Noosa triathlon back when I was a teenager I told myself one day I would give it a go. And now that I live in Queensland, I thought this year will be my time to give it a go. And of course, because it is ranked in the top 10 best tri events in the world.
Can you tell us a little about your training schedule?
I try my hardest to train twice a day if the weather allows. Morning and afternoon.
Ride: My ride is either the Brisbane River loop or the Kedron Brook track out to Nudgee Beach and back.
Swim: I’m yet to put in a good open water swim, so my training has predominantly been laps of the Centenary pool.
Run: Running is my favourite leg of the race. I have managed to get in a couple of half marathons in the lead-up and some reasonable 10km times.
The last week before the race, I will taper off my training and make sure the body is fresh come race day.
What are some of your hobbies?
Apart from running, riding and swimming, I like to travel to beautiful locations with my drone camera and capture some picturesque landscapes. One of those picturesque locations would defiantly be Noosa Shire.
Is there anything else you’d like to share with us?
I’m glad and proud I managed to raise some funds for such a great cause. And, I feel honoured to be wearing the RCD Foundation logo and colours. I hope I put on a good race and make the foundation proud.
