LIFE IS GOOD

By | June 21st, 2019|BLOG, Motivation, MS, Racing, Training|

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, [...]

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 [...]

World Cup Series Finishes Up

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

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 [...]
