A running trend

Last year I ran the Silverstone Half Marathon and decided it would be a good benchmark race to do every year. So on a rainy day in March, I was heading ...

This is my blog about being motivated by life, about challenging myself, about exploring mental and physical limitations, and about fulfilment through adventure. Be inspired.

  • I am embarking on an exciting journey in the world of triathlon and I'm committed to seeing how far I can take it. In 2012 I couldn't swim one length of front crawl, didn't own a bike and had spent most of my life as a self-classified 'non-sporty' person.

    I believe in grasping opportunities, pushing your limits, stepping outside of your comfort zone, and making the most of life. I want to do what it takes to look back on my life and be proud of the moments that shaped it.

  • Training for long distance triathlon is a constant mental and physical effort. It hurts, it's hard work, and there are some days when I wake up and passionately dislike the fact that I have to train. Then I get out there, in the outdoors, feeling my body work, and I realise I am taking one step closer to realising my dreams and it makes it all worth it.

  • My dreams are not to win, to be a world champion, to revel in the success and fame of top level elite triathlon. My dream is to challenge myself and discover what it takes to be the best that I can be.
