A trip to Las Vegas

Saturday, August 27th, 2011

Sometimes things just seem to work out … but if someone had told me even just two months ago that I would be able to qualify for the Ironman 70.3 World Championships in Las Vegas early next month, I would have suggested they were having a (not very amusing) laugh. Little did I know. After my racing […]

Eric Wynn Photography

Sunday, November 29th, 2009

Thanks go out to Eric Wynn for these cracking shots taken at Clearwater. Having long admired his snaps of top athletes from many a major race around the US, it is nice for me to be caught by his lens also. Somewhere around about the half way point – one of the few sections not amongst […]

Clearwater 2009

Wednesday, November 18th, 2009

I’m home, I’m unpacked (well, the bike can well and truly stay where it is for a little longer, let’s not get carried away) and feeling a lot closer to human after the travel. Therefore I have had some time to reflect properly and objectively about Clearwater at the weekend. I still stand by my initial […]

The day after

Monday, November 16th, 2009

I’ll take some inspiration from  Conrad here after his own World Championship experiences last month – sometimes you give you’re all and it’s just not enough. I’ll write more about my thoughts on the race soon, probably once I am home in Stirling. However, for this evening at least, where there might not be a top […]

Pre Clearwater!

Friday, November 13th, 2009

Finally, it’s nearly time to race. We arrived here in Clearwater yesterday morning and got settled in. The weather is certainly very un-Floridian (so the ‘locals’ say) at the minute – yesterday was remarkably chilly and the wind continues to blow with some strength today. I’d be happy for it to create a bit of […]

T minus 3 days

Wednesday, November 11th, 2009

Clearwater is fast approaching – its Tuesday night here in Florida as I write, and yet it seems much closer to kick off. I’m starting to get that simultaneously ‘excited and nervous’ feeling, which is good and bad. – Good that i’m feeling it, but bad that there are 3 more days for it to […]

V.I.P Future Champion!

Friday, November 6th, 2009

I can get 70 miles to the gallon on this hog! – I couldn’t resist a link to some memerable ‘Dumb and Dumber’ quotes …. its’ potentially my most favourite film (i know, but it is) and therefore I can’t help but laugh (generally out loud) to myself each time I head off down the driveway […]

Motivation needed? Not now

Wednesday, November 4th, 2009

Last week when I had a wander around Lance’s bike shop here in Austin, Mellow Johnny’s, I took the below picture of this even more famous picture. I have it framed on my wall at home in fact. I see it every morning when I wake up for swimming. – Sometimes it doesn’t work I am […]
