Well, this isn't the blog I had planned to be writing about my three days in New York. The plan had been to blog daily about my time here and post race recaps from the Brooklyn Half Marathon and also the GFNY World Championship race, however, I was not able to take part in either… Continue reading A WEEKEND IN NEW YORK
In two weeks time, I will be riding in the GFNY World Championship New York Gran Fondo. This is a 100-mile bike race with over 8,500ft of climbing. It starts at the George Washington Bridge in New York, the route goes upstate to Bear Mountain and back again to finish in Fort Lee New Jersey.… Continue reading GFNY NEW YORK HOPES & DREAMS

Another 12 months of running, swimming, riding and racing is done. These are my thoughts looking back at each month of 2018. A year which saw me complete two Ironman events, run half marathon and marathon PB's and record my biggest year in swimming, biking and running.
