Wednesday 23 November 1994

Andy Graham rang up this afternoon, desperate to come around to see me tonight about his latest plan. Now that he's not swimming Bass Strait I thought he must have some other massive solo feat to attempt.

But no. He's asked Stephen and Helen and I to train with him for the 1994 Cradle to Coast race.

In three days we would have to run-cycle-paddle 370km!

Stephen was saying, 'Yes! Yes!' all the time but I said we ought to give ourselves a couple of weeks to think about it. It would be a huge commitment, training-wise. And expensive.

'No worries,' says Andy. 'I've got that covered with Cadbury's.'
