Immoral Support Crew
Administrator, Team Looker-Afterer
“Go the extra mile”, “Push through the pain”, “We gave 110%” - all of these are very standard, if not overused, sporting idioms that you may hear after any sort of sporting event, but will almost certainly never hear around the Immoral Support Crew. Ladies may perspire, women may sweat, but the Immoral Support Crew would much rather just sit down with a hot chocolate and camera, waiting at the finish line for the team to roll in.
But do not let this lack of sporting prowess permit you to underestimate the Immoral Support Crew; she is an extremely efficient administrator, without whose help the TriHards would barely make any race. Once a date is announced, she’s off to work in a blaze of speed, and flurry of paper, booking accommodation, printing maps, coming up with schedules and pretty much being the team’s mother, ensuring they all get to the line on time; then patiently waits until the foolishness is all over.
She has been known to enter events, and come on some of the TriHards activities; she’s managed to climb to the top of Pigeon House mountain (and, upon actually seeing there was no cafe, promptly vowed to never go through that again!), climbed Koscuiszko, and participated in the walking legs of the Mother’s Day Classic and Canberra Times Fun Run.
