My trip down under….

I am back – back from representing Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships. This is going to be a very frank and open blog about my race… so grab a cuppa and settle down. We landed in Brisbane after a long flight, there were other athletes on the flight, all wearing their kit –Continue reading “My trip down under….”

This is it…

This time tomorrow, I will be sat comfortably on the plane with my noise cancelling headphones (thanks Lillian) with my super comfy superior travel comfort pillow (thank you Lucy) and my chocolate 🙂 The training is done – there’s nothing more I can do, but to get my head in the zone, get to theContinue reading “This is it…”

1 week to go – time to see what I can do!

Reading Triathlon – a triathlon run by triathletes – just the best! It’s my local triathlon run by my Triathlon Club – Tri20- it’s not my club, but I am a member 🙂 .  It’s such a friendly club and they really know how to put on a great Triathlon! Today was the 35th ReadingContinue reading “1 week to go – time to see what I can do!”

The kind donations for sponsorship has been so overwhelming – IContinue reading “Overwhelmed… and thank you!”

The wait is over…

As my fish fingers cook in the oven (fish finger sandwiches are my favourite if you didn’t know)… I am sat here contemplating if I should head out to Australia to represent Great Britain at the World Triathlon Championships in September. OMG.. I am a GB Triathlete… Yes, me…. I qualified… To represent Great BritainContinue reading “The wait is over…”

I have fallen in love again…

I loved it. I loved the swim. I loved the bike. I loved the run. I loved it all. I loved triathlon today. So today, I raced with Britain’s finest triathletes – once again, they were fast.  The course was fast.  And, I was fast, for me! Today was a totally different experience to lastContinue reading “I have fallen in love again…”

Now that was something….

  We turned up, we raced… we went home – what a hard morning’s work… We had decided that we would try to qualify for GB in Standard Distance triathlon on Sunday 13 May in St Neots – Cambridgeshire. It had been raining heavily all afternoon and into the evening and even whilst I wasContinue reading “Now that was something….”

Can I do it….?

I am going to try and represent Great Britain and enjoy the experience of racing at an Internal Triathlon Union (ITU) World Championship! Next year’s World Championship will be in Australia – Gold Coast. To qualify I need to do extremely well at St Neots Standard Triathlon (1500m Swim / 40k bike / 10k run). Continue reading “Can I do it….?”
