Ironman Boulder

Thank you Jay Prasuhn for the race day photos Ironman Boulder was  four weeks ago and I’ve had several attempts to write about the race but without much success!  I was delighted to win. Breaking the tape first was an intense and emotional feeling: through the whole of the race I was thinking of my […]

A June update

  I meant to blog after Oceanside. And then I meant to blog before St George 70.3. And then I meant to blog after St George. I am full of good blogging intentions even if I do not follow through! Life has been busy since I posted back in February and much of that is just […]

Back to training

Archie turned five months earlier this week and I am into my second month of structured training. Before Christmas I was into a pretty good routine but it was somewhat simpler to get training in as Brett was on paternity leave for most of December.

Don’t call it a comeback!

I’ve just picked up my Cervelo P5 from Jason Losey (Jason has looked after my bikes the past 4 years – he’s amazing.). I commented to Jason, “Things must be getting serious!”. My P5 is looking as good as new and ready for the road and, where it leads, I must follow! For the first […]

The home straight and just the beginning

Last week my doctor welcomed me into my third trimester: the home straight…kind of. In some ways I can’t believe I have now been pregnant for 29 weeks. However, when I think back to January when bubba was the size of a poppy seed – that feels like a long  time ago. During those early […]

2016: Let’s do this!!

I’ve always liked turning the page into a new year: reflecting on the year past, planning for the year ahead and even new year resolutions (don’t judge me!). I’ve just about wrapped up my racing plans for the year and my schedule is looking a bit like this: 10 Jan        Pucon 70.3 […]

THE 2015 blog…

November is not an obvious time to be writing my first blog of 2015 but better late than never. Kona was a little over 5 weeks ago so I will start there and who knows, maybe I’ll get around to writing another in 2015. This year was my seventh year racing on the Big Island. […]

Challenge Bahrain and other stuff

There was a whole lot of hype around Challenge Bahrain and the event lived up to expectations.  The race organisers put a lot of effort into gathering quality fields on both the men’s and women’s field and there was some fast and close racing.  We were treated very well and it sounds like the age […]

This comes from the land down under…

It is  only 10 days until Challenge Bahrain, my final race of 2014 and so a good time for a quick update from Perth.  It’s my fourth week here in Perth; my fourth time here but my first time here training.  I’ve been impressed.  Perth is a city that likes to be active and likes […]
