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 [...]

European Adventures

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! I spent a week in Nice, France at the beginning of April meeting some amazing people living with MS, sharing our stories and learning about up to [...]

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. [...]

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 [...]

2017 World Para Cycling Championships – South Africa

By | August 27th, 2017|Motivation, Racing, Training|

The last 6 weeks seem to have gone by in a blur since arriving home from Europe.  I must say though that the weather certainly was better in Europe and I had to adapt back to the cold and wearing multiple layers while riding.  Then the dreaded lurgy hit me full on, the head cold [...]

My two months in Europe came to a close with the 3rd World Cup which was held in Emmen, Netherlands.  I had some great training in the lead up to this last World Cup for the year and was really looking forward to racing. Hannah and I took 2 days to drive from Italy to [...]

Life as a Cyclist

By | June 8th, 2017|BLOG, Friends, Racing, Training|

After leaving the team in Belgium, I travelled to Dortmund, Germany with Hannah Dines of Scotland.  We drove her car, which is a right hand drive car on the right hand side of the road.  Talk about weird!  But it is amazing how you can get used to something, now I will just have to [...]

Determination

By | May 23rd, 2017|BLOG, MS, Racing, Training|

Life is funny sometimes, you can prepare, have plans and know what direction you want to be headed and then life can throw you a curve ball! The first two World Cups of the year and been raced with some very mixed feelings and results for me.  I've had one thing left on the bucket [...]

Dreams and Challenges

By | April 1st, 2017|BLOG, Racing, Training|

We always need to continue to have dreams and challenges.  A lot of people have asked me what more I could possibly want to accomplish.  But without goals life would be pretty boring!  My dream and challenge for this year is to try to win the World Cup Series.  I haven't ever been able to [...]

2016 A Year of Highs and Lows

Well 2016 has come and gone with some amazing highs and some really sad lows. I never thought that a year could be such a roller coaster. But life is funny like that, you never really know what is around the next corner in our ever changing lives. But it is how we end up [...]
