“Iceland is my least favourite european nation – first the banking crisis and now this bonfire . .  and that shop named after them is for neds  . . . . you can quote me on all that!”  Gavin says it all really.

Ironman 70.3 South Africa 2010

Tuesday, January 19th, 2010

Woohoo! I won! It was 2 years and 3 attempts coming, but I secured a victory in East London on Sunday finally – and it felt good for sure. It’s not easy to win a race these days, so I am more than happy with how I coped on race day to do just that. […]

A Friday morning in Africa

Friday, January 8th, 2010

Having taken inspiration from our very own Lesley I thought i could do a similar blog post (but with less crammed into the day/morning!) charting my morning ride with Toby Jameson, who is my new ‘roomy’ out here in Stellenbosch whilst we get ready for racing in East London at the Ironman 70.3 South Africa next w/e.

(And I even outsplit the fastest girl on […]

Pre – pre – race day.

Saturday, April 25th, 2009

My and Toby Jameson (my solo partner in crime out here since Julie ‘Dibs’ Dibens – or Deeeedens as they say out here – has cracked a rib and declined to join the gang this time around) got out and did a little bicycling this morning. I think I found the joke a little funnier than he […]

Travelling cross country

I arrived in Florida later on last night, happy to step off the plane to yet another warm climate. Spoilt … that’s what I have become!

Florida bound

Saturday, November 1st, 2008

We were there in Arpil […]
