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 [...]

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 [...]

Expectations

I was reminded recently by a friend of mine, Alexandra, that we have to ‘do our best and let go of the rest’.  She also wrote that ‘When you know in your heart you did the best you had in you today, whatever that looks like... let go of the rest. Let go of your [...]

Living An Amazing Journey

By | June 30th, 2018|Motivation|

I am sitting in a little AirBnB Bungalow in the rural community of Erm in the Netherlands, having arrived yesterday after about 27 hours of travelling.  I stayed at the same place last year when I was travelling around with Hannah Dines of GB. I'm on my own this year but only until I meet [...]

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

By | April 3rd, 2018|Celebration, Friends, Motivation, Training, Training|

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. [...]

From Stone to Gold

‘You gain strength, courage and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face.  Do the thing you think you cannot do.’ ~ Eleanor Roosevelt How many times do you not attempt to change something or try something new because, the fear of failure, the fear you may look [...]

How Do You Define Yourself?

By | February 3rd, 2018|BLOG, Celebration, Motivation, Racing, Training|

As this new year seems to fly by (I can't believe we are into February already!) I realised that life got so busy and I hadn't done a blog in a very long time.  So thought I had better put my fingers to the keyboard and talk about not only my last year but to [...]
