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 [...]

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 [...]

My Sister – Not just my Family – My Friend

By | July 26th, 2018|Celebration, Family, Friends, Training|

It has been almost 2.5 years since I’ve seen my sister.  It was when our father died in March 2016.  So when I invited her to come and see me in Italy for a week I was so excited when she said she would. We all have busy lives and no more so than my [...]

Special Family Time

By | June 28th, 2018|BLOG, Family, Friends|

After coming back from Europe and the first World Cup of the year it was back to training, training and more training for me.  That is until my niece sent me a message and asked if she could come for a visit.  That was definitely not something I could ever say no to, even if [...]

Wisdom and Gratitude

By | May 9th, 2018|Celebration, Family, Friends, Motivation, MS, Racing, Training|

The whole trip this last month has been certainly one of wisdom and gratitude. I think that at times we just go with the flow and our days become just one day after another without thinking about what we have learnt or what we have to be grateful for. My last few days have been [...]

We are getting to the pointy end of my trip overseas this past month, with racing about to start tomorrow, Thursday.  I am really looking forward to this!

Life on Long Weekends

With the International racing season about to begin, with the first World Cup race in May, my training has picked up quite a bit with more kilometres every week and strength sessions in the gym.  I’m tired but I know that in the long run it is what is needed to get faster and stronger. [...]

A Week of Women

By | October 15th, 2017|BLOG, Celebration, Friends, Motivation|

What an amazing week I have had and it all revolved around women!  I certainly didn’t plan it this way but I think it was the world’s way of giving me a message. This week I learnt that as women we must celebrate our accomplishments, be happy with who we are in body and soul [...]

The Off Season

By | September 21st, 2017|Celebration, Family, Friends|

Well another year has come and gone in my world of Para cycling.  We have finished the road racing season for the year, at least here in Australia.  For me what started off as a pretty ordinary season ended spectacularly with my wins in South Africa.  I still have not committed to Tokyo 2020 because [...]

Ngiyabonga iNingizimu Afrika (Zulu) – Thank You South Africa

What an amazing week it has been!  At the beginning of the year my goals were to 1 win the World Cup Series but number 2 more importantly win back my World Champion Stripes in the Road Race.  Well I at least accomplished one of them…and the stripes were the most important.  There is always [...]
