One Phone Call

By | March 30th, 2020|BLOG, Family, Friends, Training|

One phone call is all it takes to change your life!   That happened to me on Saturday the 21st of March.  I had just finished a lovely ride with my friend Clare and we were in her backyard along with her partner Andrew, having coffee and keeping our social distancing.  My mobile rang with an [...]

A New World

By | March 20th, 2020|BLOG, Friends, Motivation|

I don't think any of us would have predicted how this year would pan out the way it has so far.  We have entered an unknown world that has made people fearful and panicking.  From December to February, I saw people who were companssionate and giving due to the bushfires.  People who would do anything to help [...]

The End of an Era – The Start of New Beginnings

By | March 14th, 2020|BLOG, Celebration, Charity, Family, Friends, MS|

As the author Geoffery Chaucer wrote "all good things must come to an end". A couple of years ago I mentioned in passing to the events staff from MS Limited and to the friends that help  me out at the 24 Hour Mega Swim that when I hit 20 years I was going to retire [...]

2019 The Year That Was

By | December 30th, 2019|Motivation, MS, Racing, Speaking, Training|

It's hard to believe that another year is almost over.  I know that as we get older it seems like the year's go by faster but this year was unusually fast but I guess that is because I spent so much of it overseas.  A total of 15 weeks on the other side of the [...]

LIFE IS GOOD

The other day i was walking around Brussel’s and thinking about what an incredible life I have.  I think I have to pinch myself every day to believe that I am actually doing what I am doing. You may have read other blogs of mine so you will know my story but for those who don’t [...]

No Expectations

By | June 5th, 2019|BLOG, Motivation, Racing, Training|

I have to admit it has been a very long time since I have written a blog.  I think that I felt like I had nothing to say over the last 6 months and to be honest maybe I still don't.  But life has gone on and my life has been a very busy one, [...]

A Moment to Change a Life

By | November 24th, 2018|BLOG, Celebration, Charity, Friends, Motivation|

I was reminded today that certain decisions, encounters, meetings and events help shape our lives.  These certain moments can be crucial and profoundly change the course of our ives.  Today I was meeting up with past employees of MS.  Some of the members were there when it was the MS Society of Victoria and some [...]

Hard Days

By | November 19th, 2018|BLOG, Motivation|

Some days are just not meant to be easy.  Do you ever have those days where just nothing seems to go right.  No matter what you do something seems to go wrong.  Those days when you just want to go back to bed and hope that if you get out the other side things will [...]

The Gift of Friendship

By | October 12th, 2018|BLOG, Celebration, Family, Friends|

For the last few months I have been overseas racing and training and I had a fairly successful season with many lessons learned along the way.  But after the racing was done I decided to take a month off for the first time ever!  I always take some time off at the end of the [...]

Bucket List Completed!

By | August 21st, 2018|BLOG, Celebration, Motivation, Racing|

Not many of us get the chance to say that we have completed our bucket lists.  But today I can say that in my sporting life I have done just that.  Seven years ago when I started riding my trike competitively I just wanted to see where it would take me.   I wrote down some [...]
