My name is Sean; I am an injury-prone Ironman-
in-waiting. I’ve completed eighteen distance sporting events; an Ironman, three marathons, three half ironmans, two Olympic distance triathlons, three cyclosportives, four half-marathons, a 10km and a strange 15km race that well, I did it for the t-shirt. I’m a weak swimmer, a weak cyclist and a slow runner, but I enjoy the cycling the most – though it is a close battle sometimes between that a running. I definitely don’t like swimming. While I harbour dreams of one day attempting Kona, I figure that I may have to wait until I am 65 and in a higher age bracket to get the opportunity. I’m simply too slow. I’d love to make a 70.3 World Championships or an ITU one, but it will take a metric shedload of work (that’s a lot).
I’m also the father to an adorable daughter, referred to in terms ranging from the Tin Baby to the Tin Girl. Eventually she will be the Tin Woman – hopefully with more heart than her dad. I have incredibly supportive girlfriend, family and friends who drive me in ways that they will never know. When I’m not thrashing my body around, I’m undertaking a PhD on nuclear weapons policy, working full time in HR for a major media business, following the Melbourne Football Club, laughing at cartoons, making horrid jokes and reciting Star Wars or Simpsons lines.
