Journey2Edmonton Week 1-3

One month ago yesterday I received the exciting news that I had qualified to represent Australia in the World Age Group Triathlon Championships in Edmonton later this year. One month on and I still feel the need to pinch myself when I say or type this. I cannot believe that this is my life- it’s so far from where I…

Ride in Peace dear friend.

This morning I have received some truly tragic news about a colleague, a friend and a fellow cyclist. Another life has been lost on our roads, with no explanation as to why and with another motorist who has shown no respect of human life by driving off after the collision. This person was a passionate cyclist and I am trying…

10 ways my life has changed

A friend the other day pointed out how much I have changed when I agreed to sign up to do an obstacle course with her.  I met this friend only 4 years ago in my first year as a vet and she is absolutely right- the girl she worked with that year would have never agreed to do an obstacle…

Why was this so important to me- well the last thing I want to promote on my page is an unhealthy relationship with food or exercise. Over the last 9 weeks I have…

Well, I waited nearly 12 months to purchase my dream triathlon kit, but u finally have it! After a long delay with the postage I had been considering sending it back as soon as it arrived, that consideration was negated as soon as I laid hands on it! I know not all of you will be into the pink and…

Are you ‘too busy’ for you!?

We have all heard them and probably used them one thousand times before….I’m too busy,I’m too tired, It’s too hot/cold/(insert any other adjective that may make it not as perfectly conducive to exercise as you make like). Excuses! They obviously occur in all aspects of our life, but probably are most frequently used when talking eating healthy or exercise. I’m…

Generation Slow or Generation Give it a Go?

Well after reading this article ( The Slowest Generation by Kevin Helliker )I’m filled with passion to publish my first blog post. Whilst trying to stay level headed, I must admit the article by the Wall St Journal, which claims that the younger generation have lost their competitive edge and are making races boring, leaves me disheartened and a little…
