Buffalo Stampede Race(s)

Buffalo Stampede Race(s) It has taken me a while to figure out how to write this race report. Plus straight afterwards, Michael and I jumped on a plane over to Tasmania for a weeks’ holiday. So I wasn’t in the right headspace to write this out straight away! So there is nothing like a deadline […]

Sharpy’s Beer Run 10k

This was the last race I did in 2020 when Covid was starting to become “a thing” in Australia and it was the first race I have pinned a number on for and lined up at a start line with a lot of people. The 3 hour mountain bike race felt like a race but […]

The Power of Words

Power of words I have tried to write this blog post a few times but for some reason I haven’t been able to gather my thoughts accordingly to get what I want to say across. I am hoping this time will be different! If you’re reading this, then I have figured out how to say what […]
