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 […]

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.

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 […]

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 […]

UK Ironman 70.3, Wimbleball Lake

Wednesday, June 10th, 2009

I’m gearing up for my major goal race of the first half of the racing season this w/e. It’s been an up and down first few months of 2009 racing for me, but I am finally feeling confident about my prospects of being able to race to my potential on Sunday morning. I’m very motivated […]

Thursday, November 6th, 2008

We arrived in Clearwater this afternoon. Finally, its nearly race time! We got registered, and I did some tv stuff for a programme channel 4 will run in December time at home, which is nice. This 70.3 thing is catchin on…..!

Florida bound

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

I’m all packed and I’m yet again on the move; to St Petersburg, Florida. There is just one week left till the Foster Grant Ironman World Championship 70.3 in Clearwater, and I am heading over to the same great homestay I enjoyed last time with Carolyn, and also Julie Dibens. We were there in Arpil […]

Xterra Maui World Champs 2008 recap

Wednesday, October 29th, 2008

I watched online via the xterra.tv link, and that was pretty cool – the swim and finsh at least….the in-between-bits were a bit too much fuzzy-helicoptor-heights and catch-a-glimpse-if-you-can but hey, better than nothing.

Supporting Jamie Whitmore

Wednesday, September 17th, 2008

I am not an Xterra athlete, and I don’t know Jamie or her husband, but I am a fellow pro triathlete and I, like many people in this world have experienced the effects of cancer on our friends and loved ones. I am an avid triathlon enthusiast and student of the sport, so I was fully aware of Jamie […]
