JDRF One Ride 2017

I am super excited to launch my campaign for the 2017 JDRF One Ride today! This is one of JDRF’s important fundraising events and is held in the Barossa Valley at the beginning of May 2017. I’ve got some big ambitions for my fundraising and participation in the event and I really want to get as much exposure for Type 1 Diabetes and JDRF out into the community.

I have a page dedicated to One Ride Event JDRF One Ride 2017 where I’ll be linking all of my posts and activities to, and my fundraising page can be found here Donate to Type1Athletc One Ride.

Please head over to my JDRF One Ride page for all of the info and please think about getting involved in this fantastic event however you can, your contribution reall does make a difference to the lives of people with type 1 diabetes! Thank you

Light & Dark: Exercise Addiction

I’ve become increasingly interested in mental health and well-being, and its influence and importance to athletic performance. This interest has developed from personal experience and varying performance over the last 12 months.

I read this piece (Light & Dark) on CyclingTips provided further insight into one aspect of amateur training and racing which is particularly prominent to Ironman triathlon where the quantity and quality of training required is very high.

The Good Pain – Peaks Challenge

I watched this short film this morning and I got that nervous feeling in my stomach just thinking about the pain you get from pushing yourself further than you think possible. Inspiring short film is from the launch Bicycle Network’s Peaks Challenge Series for 2016/17 which comprises three amazing and challenging cycling events in Victoria, Tasmania and Queensland. After watching this I have pencilled these in my diary for 2016/17.

Please Enjoy!
