Ultraman Canada 2014

The past week or so, my Facebook has been putting up old memories from my first Ultraman I did in 2014. I still rate this as the hardest race I’ve ever done. And it was the first time I realised that I am very mentally tough to be able to get through it. I went […]

Small Talk

We are back in lockdown in Melbourne at the moment. It’s not ideal but it’s the best thing we can do to get this virus under control. I honestly don’t care how many statistics people throw around about how many people have recovered from the virus vs how many people have died. Every statistic of […]

Look back to look forward

I kept thinking that I would have something a bit more interesting to write this month’s blog update but to be honest, I’m feeling a little deflated. In Melbourne, where I live, a bunch of suburbs have just been announced to be back into lockdown. This sucks. The virus numbers are spiking again and it’s […]

Catching up

Since my last update, there hasn’t been a lot that has changed in the world. In my world anyway! I am still working, training and not racing. I have actually found this time nice for a change. I have pulled out of my race in July as I can’t see any international flights happening by […]

What now??

These are interesting times. As I have said previously, I find it much easier to write about races that I have done than anything else as it gives me a focus to my post. But with no races on the horizon, I had to dig a little deeper for what to write about this time. […]

Sharpy’s 10k Run & Mountain Bike Orienteering

I managed to squeeze in two races yesterday. I was super surprised that with a lot of race cancellations, these two were able to go ahead. But the current regulations in Australia are any gathering with less than 500 people will be allowed to go ahead from Monday. We had information from the trail run […]

RRP #502

Today my podcast episode with Rich Roll comes out. Last time I did a podcast with Rich and my Epic 5 sister Dani, I had a pretty big meltdown (which I talk about in this episode) afterwards. It was anxiety like I’ve never felt before because of feeling the imposter syndrome and wondering why I […]

Otway Odyssey

I have been mountain bike racing for a few years now. I have done a bunch of Friday night races with the Geelong Mountain Bike Club as well as 3 hour and a 6 hour race at the You Yangs. I’ve super comfortable on most of the trails out there so racing in Forrest for […]

Back to it

I finished of 2019 with a 10k fun run on New Years Eve. It was awesome. I was back on trails that I had been on for the 100k I ran earlier in the year. It’s also where I go and do mountain bike races and rides so it’s great to do races out there […]
