Answering a standard medical questionnaire is no longer straight forward for me. In my medical history is cancer, Stage 3 Breast Cancer, my cancer was aggressive but my tumour was small when I found it and thankfully as far as I am aware the Cancer has not spread further. For a while I was on [...]
The story starts in January 2018 when out of the blue I decided I’d run the half marathon at Melbourne marathon in October 2018. I signed up early and told as many people as I could for accountability. I started training straight away and managed to run 19km in 2.5 hours so thought I was [...]

I have been running and competing in triathlons for around 10 years now and not once did I really feel the ‘want’ to run 100kms but that all changed [...]
As the rain pelts down on the streets of New York City we are watching the garbage trucks, NYPD cars, endless yellow taxis and array black umbrellas pass by the window of the Hilton Executive Lounge.
