Commonwealth Games non-selection

2017-01-14T03:53:10-06:00August 28th, 2014|Race|

Unfortunately I will not be representing Wales at the 2014 Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. It’s disappointing on so many levels. There were three positions available on the Welsh team, however only two Welsh women were chosen: the very talented Non Stanford and Helen Jenkins. In November last year, it was made clear by selectors that [...]

2013 was not my year… but I’m not gong to give up because I’m not afraid to start over!

IM 70.3 St. George will go down in my book as the toughest 70.3’s I have ever done and also one of the prettiest. In the past this was a full Ironman distance and all my respect to those who managed to conquer this beast of a race back then! I heard all about how [...]

Keeping things in perspective

2017-01-14T03:53:10-06:00August 23rd, 2014|Thoughts|

Since turning to long course racing, early season form has never been my focus. For this reason, despite the high expectations triathlon media and fans have placed on me, I am actually happy with my 6th place in the Ironman 70.3 San Juan this past weekend. It is impossible to stay in peak form all [...]
