Sat here on the plane travelling back from the European Championships I write this and ask myself why? Why now? What has prompted me to start blogging…? and why the hell would anyone want to hear from, in comparison to others, a pretty average athlete!

Well I suppose it’s for that very reason… Quite good and average, sometimes even above average are words that I’ve become used to hearing. From back to my school days when I was not quite good enough to make the headlines in running or athletics or be picked to train at the local clubs to nights out when the boys would always go for my prettier, taller, slimmer friend. But I was always a trier, once I committed to something I gave it 100%.

I think I grew up always wanting to be really good at something and I can honestly say that through running, cycling and Duathlon I’m starting to get there. So maybe by sharing a little of my journey I can help to inspire others…
