January 2014

I have been a little slow coming out of the starting blocks for 2014 due to an injury that has stopped me from running. It isn’t the nicest feeling watching your training group leave for an altitude camp but I quickly got onto to recovery and rehab (thank you to Mark Young and Alex Price) so I could be back on my feet as soon as possible. I decided to go back home to Moss Vale particularly because we moved house and everything I needed for training was at my doorstep.

I’m now back in Wollongong with the ‘Wizards’ and Head Wizard Jamie and things are slowly coming together. Thanks to Triathlon Australia’s National Talent Academy program, Giant Bikes Aus and Spearman Cycles, I am now hitting the roads on a brand new Giant Envie, which like every new bike, I have fallen in love with!
