Ironman UK, Bolton 2012

Friday, July 27th, 2012

Happy – proud even, to reach the finish line in second place at Bolton on Sunday. Ironman is a long, tough day for one and all … me included. This was my longest one yet – all 9 hours, 7 minutes of it, and therefore continuing an upwards trend in my finish times – note to self; something […]

Ironman 70.3 Steelhead

Thursday, August 18th, 2011

Steelhead was never a race that I had planned to race at before I arrived in the US – but after the Boulder 70.3 last weekend I decided to make the trip over to Michigan and do my first ‘back to back’ in some time; it could end in tears, or – I hoped – act as […]

Ironman 70.3 Boulder 2011

Tuesday, August 9th, 2011

9th Place: Swim 24:00, Bike 2:03:48, Run 1:29:59 ….total 3:59:50  Yesterday was the next installment in my ‘racing myself back to shape’ programme … let say I maybe underestimated the effects of racing at a mile high elevation after less than 3 weeks of acclimatisation, but lessons were learned and plenty positives taken. Onwards and upwards.

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 […]

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 […]

Nearly time to race

Sunday, May 2nd, 2010

So the bike is geared up and the bag is ready and waiting to go. All that’s left is to get to bed and wait for the 3.30 alarm! I’m excited to be racing again, as I said yesterday, it’s one of those iconic races to tick off.

Racing anyone?

Sunday, July 12th, 2009

Whilst I was continuing my aquaintance with the rare air there was a lot of superb racing happening in Europe (and a bit in the US too!) – makes you want to get out there first thing in the morning and rip it up. Well, at least get out of bed early…. ….which is exactly […]

3rd @ UK 70.3

Monday, June 15th, 2009

3rd place wasn’t what I went to Wimbleball Lake for, but given it was – on reflection – probably the toughest race I’ve finished so far in my career, I’m content with a podium; my 6th on the 70.3 circuit. More to follow when i wake up ‘tomorrow’ – its nearly 4am right now after driving back up […]

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 […]
