Celebrating Success

By | June 22nd, 2016|Celebration, Motivation|

How many of us actually celebrate our success? I’m not talking about those big, life changing goals but the stepping stone goals along the way. Celebrating these successes is important and good for you because it reminds you of the reasons you set your major goal in the first place. I also believe it is [...]

Unexpected Journey

“You have too many lesions on your brain for someone your age. So basically you have MS, your life as you know it is over, so I would suggest you go home and put your affairs in order before you become incapacitated. Oh and this silly sport stuff you do, well you will never do [...]

Upper Austrian Tour

What a great week of racing! Although there were only 4 trikes involved, this tour was an extremely valuable experience. I got to race with the fastest male trike rider in the world, Hans-Peter Durst from Dortmund, Germany. The lessons I learnt from riding right behind him were fantastic and although I wasn’t able to [...]

It was a fabulous weekend of racing on the coast of Belgium.  As one of the last hit outs before Rio where a large number of the athletes would be taking part, it was great to see where my training is at.  We had the largest contingent of trike riders in both the Men and [...]

Defy The Odds

2 Days ago on the 23rd of April I celebrated the 18th anniversary of my diagnosis of Multiple Sclerosis. On that day a very uncaring neurologist told me that "my life as I knew it was over, go home put your affairs in order before you become incapacitated." He told me I would never do [...]

My last couple of blogs have been written with sadness in my heart, but this year has also been one of a number of huge highs to go along with those lows. With just a few days left in 2015 (where the heck did it go?) I thought I would write about those highs and [...]

Reflections

I’m sitting here in San Francisco waiting for my last flight to get me back to Toronto for Christmas, people watching and wondering where everyone is going? Each airport I have been at in the last 20+ hours have been jam packed with people no doubt heading to spend the holiday season with loved ones, [...]

World Cup – Road Race – Last Race for the Season!

By | September 12th, 2015|BLOG, Celebration, Racing|

Being the last major race for the season I wanted to end it on a good note.  As I had been beaten by Jill Walsh USA at the World Championships in Switzerland I decided I had to ride this race a bit different.  Never one for being very good at tactics I really had to [...]

On my way to winning Gold Today was a day that I never thought would ever happen...winning my 3rd World Championship Individual Time Trial!  It just still, 10 hours later, seems surreal!  But it has happened and I couldn't be happier, I don't ever want this bubble to burst! I did wake up [...]
