#GetYourBellyOut

I saw this fantastic article last week about model Bethany Townsend who braved posting  a photo of herself in a bikini online…but this wasn’t just any photo. This was the first time Bethany had braved posting a picture which revealed her colostomy bag. You see Bethany has struggled with Chrohns disease for some time, and had her colostomy bag placed 2…

Journey 2 Edmonton- Week 4-12

So 7 weeks have passed since my last training update about my journey to the World Age Group Triathlon Championships (which are in 7 weeks time!!). The last 7 weeks have been less that perfect (and definitely not as planned) – this is particularly true of the last 2-3 weeks during which very minimal training has been done thanks to…

#StopTheBeautyMadness

Those of you that have been following my facebook page for a while, would know that the #StopTheBeautyMadness campaign is something that is right up my alley.

This person was a passionate cyclist and I am trying…

Queensland Sprint Championships- Race Report

On the weekend I raced my second every sprint distance Triathlon- 12 months on from my first and at the same race. They couldn’t have been 2 more different days for me! Not to mention the last time I raced at this location for the Moreton Bay Triathlon (which was a complete disaster from start to finish). I was pumped…
