Scottish Duathlon Championships 2012

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

It might be March, in Scotland …. but look at that sunshine! This is me finishing up the bike leg from Sunday’s Scottish Duathlong Champs held at the University Campus here in Stirling. It was a fun morning, and hey, it reached nearly 20C by the time we had finished!

Ironman Arizona 2011

Tuesday, March 27th, 2012

2011 has been a very different year to that of 2010, thats certainly for sure. Similarities in my Ironman racing during both those years can start and end in the simple fact that I ‘completed’ Ironmans in both years. – In Kona last year I did nothing more than toe  tread water) the start line and cross the […]

Spirit of Racine Roundup

Monday, July 18th, 2011

Let me tell you – this week has been a busy one; starting off with a trip to Switzerland , a couple days at home to pack (read: procrastinate) and head on over to the US for 6 weeks of training and racing based out of Boulder. En route was a visit to Trek in […]

Zurich 5150, 2011

Monday, July 11th, 2011

Two weeks further down the line from the trip to liverpool and with two more weeks of Shire-training tucked away it was time to head towards departures at Edinburgh airport once more. Destination Zurich; for the next round of the Ironman 5150 series of olympic distance racing. I had Ritchie Nicholls as a travel buddy, starting only his […]

Liverpool 5150, 2011

Tuesday, June 28th, 2011

Keep the ball rolling! – One week on from the season debut at the Scottish Sprints it was up a distance notch for the UK round of Ironman’s new olympic distance 5150 Series in Liverpool at the weekend.  The race was higher profile and a little bit busier than last weekend shall we say, so I was looking forward […]

Nautica Malibu Triathlon

Wednesday, September 15th, 2010

After what is without question the longest gap in my blogging ‘career’ I am now back ‘in the game’ I think; both with motivation to write and interesting material to actually write about! Last Thursday I arrived in Los Angeles and on SaturdayI raced at the Nautica Malibu Triathlon and placed 3rd.  It was an olympic distance […]

TriGrandPrix – Kent

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010

On Sunday I took on a world class field at Leybourne Lakes, Kent at the TriGrandPrix and crossed the line as the winner, the reality of which is still sinking in if I am honest. – It was the goal, but to actually tick the box is always tricky. I believe as I spoke to Jose – who […]

A final few Abu Dhabi pictures

Monday, March 22nd, 2010

A week has gone by since we got home from the middle east, (time flies) and I am well on my way to being recovered and ready to tackle the next phase of training. However, there are a few more pics here that I have to remind myself of the antics last w/e in the desert heat. […]

Pre Abu Dhabi!

Friday, March 12th, 2010

It’s nearly race day … and boy has it been a few days of hanging around an waiting for it to arrive. I’m not much of a fan of emersing yourself amongst you’re rivals and competitors for days on end before an event, but there wasn’t much choice for this race. It was a  long […]

Aguilas out

Tuesday, October 6th, 2009

A slightly shorter than initially planned trip – 9 days as opposed to 12, but it’s still been a great little block of training in the sun down here in Spain. It’s been 2 full years since I trained here, and back then it was pretty much the only place I coulf get to for […]

SABIC Long Distance – Stein, The Netherlands

Monday, June 22nd, 2009

Despite racing over the 70.3 distance last weekend I had a plan b for this weekend if the legs felt willing … thankfully by Saturday morning they had started to come around and by Sunday morning they felt like my own once again. Just.

Stirling Triathlon 2009

Sunday, June 7th, 2009

I had a fun day today – firstly racing, and then mostly helping out – at the Stirling Triathlon which included the Scottish Schools Championships. I like racing at home when I can, and the Stirling Triathlon Club have been very supportive of me so far, making it all the more worthwhile being able to give a little something […]

Wildflower triathlon festival 2009

Tuesday, May 5th, 2009

After what feels like an awfully long time, I am now back in Escondido from the ‘Wildflower trip’. It was a long one I’ll tell you that! But a load of fun nontheless, and most importantly I finished. Without leg pain. About bloomin’ time….

St Anthony’s Triathlon 2009

Sunday, April 26th, 2009

Just a quick race update from this morning here in St Petersburg – 14th place, 1:53:16. My leg didn’t hurt either (well, they collectively ‘hurt’ as a pair, but my sore spot didn’t hurt!) – and that is progress in the land-of-Fraser right now, let me tell you. (And I even outsplit the fastest girl on […]

Miami International Triathlon 2009

Sunday, March 15th, 2009

Today I raced an olympic distance event in Miami. Non drafting. I finished 8th place in 1.52.16. It was a tough day at the office as they say, but a solid start to the year in the Northern Hemisphere.

Riding in Miami

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009

I was out on the bike course for the Miami International Triathlon yesterday evening, and I came up behind a group of guys, which prompted me to take a picture, cos you just wouldn’t see it in many other places I doubt!! It is after all only March.

Sunday, October 5th, 2008

And we’re off….. the start of the Scottish Duathlon Championships this morning at Stirling University. Spot me in there somewhere if you can.

Bala Standard Triathlon 2008

Monday, September 15th, 2008

Where is the pontoon going? I last raced at the Bala triathlon in 2001, as a not-so-fast-junior. Yesterday I raced as a not-so-fast-senior!
