So I guess you can gather that I am the kind of person who enjoys BIG challenges. Nothing I do is ever small, or unassuming. I am always about pushing the barriers, stretching myself to the limits…seeing what my body, mind and spirit can achieve. This often means BIG ADVENTURE, and sometimes, just sometimes it involves…

I love parkrun I do I can’t deny it. I love its simplicity. I love how inclusive it can be. And I love that it is always there, even when I am not. And most recently I have not been there that much at all. Saturday mornings have become problematic for me…with my 4 and…

Did I ever tell you story about when I was 10 years old and I cycled from my home in Upton Park to Barking on my new BMX bike and somehow ended up on the motorway and had to be rescued by the police who escorted me away from the busy traffic? Then there was…

I think I have something wrong with me. A defective gene, or weird programming from when I was a child that constantly has me thinking… Oh…I wonder if I could do that? Even if the thing is completely ridiculous in its scale, or timing wise bang in the middle of a really hectic time, I…

Before I became a blogger I worked as a project manager, on all kinds of projects in the arts, community programmes and volunteering. For around 8 years I worked on London 2012 related projects, delivering consultation projects that helped local communities understand the changes that were happing, or finding ways of getting older people involved….

My alarm went off at 5.45 am. I was child free. And I did not have to travel anywhere far today, I was up early so I could fit exercise into my day. It was cold. It was dark. I was tired. But I had committed to doing CrossFit this morning, and I had told…

Now I live in the city of London, and of course there are hills…but believe you me, I do everything I can to avoid them. I know, I know, hills are good for me, and help me develop strength and endurance…I just dislike them OK??? Well yesterday I couldn’t have avoided them even if I had…

Ten years ago I took part in a sport that just a year prior I had never heard of. I entered into a strange tribe of lycra clad athletes who all looked like they knew what they were doing. And not only that they all had incredible bodies, strong, long limbs…washboard stomachs and broad shoulders….

Over the past month or so I have been supporting British Triathlons #YourGoTri campaign, a marketing drive to show that any body can give Triathlon a go, and to point new comers to the sport to the range of events on offer around the country. Now, the last multi sport event I did was the…
