When Lisa at Cure Rett first proposed representing the charity at the London Triathlon I immediately got myself signed up. Although the thought of how I was going to get my bike and luggage through London to the Excel Centre never once crossed my mind. For those looking to do it in the future there […]Read more "Tri-Tri Again. London Triathlon Review (8th August)"
Since I had embarked on my triathlon journey at the start of this year the one triathlon I had signed up to that I was dreading was this one.

As David Bowie once uttered c-c-c-c-c-c-changes are afoot on the blog. Nothing major, I’m just trying to make it look a bit more user friendly.

“Yes sir you have the bridal suite tonight.” My first reaction on arriving at the Villaggio hotel in Warrington and hearing this was one of bewilderment for sure. The only action the bridal suite was getting that night was that of a 32 year old nerd eating crisps and watching Doctor Who. But enough of […]Read more "WARRINGTON HALF MARATHON (SEPTEMBER 9th)"
