Someone I know died yesterday. Not someone I know really well, but someone I know all the same. Up until I had my first child 7 years ago, we were both a part of the very close knit Perth triathlon community, as it was back then, and probably still is today. He was killed early yesterday morning whilst cycling, in a hit and run incident involving a driver who was most likely drunk. It is an absolute tragedy, and I want to say that the collective sadness of the whole Perth triathlon community, past and present, is welling up as I speak, with sadness over the loss of this lovely young man. My thoughts go out to his family, and to all of those who love him.
Life is such a gift. It shouldn’t just be times like this we remember to treat every moment as such.
