[LATEST POST] Going viral when you least expect it ... and it was right here on Instagram! All thanks to Frank and his @continentalmtb #shoebike with its 12 @Adidas trainers for tyres :) 208k likes to date.
What a year for running! Thanks so much for all the amazing comments I’ve had this year and to everyone who has followed my journey. 2017 has been full of some great experiences at events, but my ultimate favourite had to be the Walt Disney Marathon that I ran in Orlando with Andy and my dad. Which races is your highlight?
The photos I've picked out are the ones which make me smile the most, but in no order are:
1. New Year’s Day run with @adidasuk
2. Being on top of a mountain in the lakes with @sharag90
3. Running with my dad to visit my grandparents
4. Lying on a hammock after the challenge of 4 races in 4 days in Florida
5. Visiting the Scottish Highlands for a training weekend with @livdmc
6. Doing the @chimarathon
7. Completing Berlin marathon with my Dad in a time I was happy with
8. Completing the @ridelondon - I still can’t believe I managed that!
9. Running in the sunshine everyday for a week with Andy in Gran Canaria 😀❤📆
It's getting towards the end of the year with just 23 days of 2017 left! While I'm not wishing them away - there are plenty of exciting things still to come - it's fun to look back at what I've achieved over the last 12 months. I will have my usual recap blog post in a week or so, but the Instagram #2017bestnine is a pretty good summary - running, cycling, hiking, spinning, yoga, medals, friends and beaches! 😊😊🏅🚲👟
2017 in bling: these medals weigh a tonne! Good thing I’m taking them with me to Australia... 😅
Each medal tells its own story of struggle and success. It’s been a massive year, but I’m so proud of what I’ve achieved. 🏅
🚴🏼♀️Top Sportives in 2018 🚴🏼♀️
I’m beginning to plot what challenges and sportives I’ll be entering next year so I thought I’d write a blog post on my favourite sportives. Ones that I’ve either done or had highly recommended. Including their routes, cost, difficulty level and how to sign up.
Last year I used sportives as a mini goals towards the Ironman which helped mentally and physically get me to Zurich Ironman. They are really fun, well organised, marshalled or route is sign posted, great way to make new friends too.
Includes Hell of the Ashdown in Kent, @challengesophie London to Paris24 hours, Ride London 100, @pearsoncycles Brighton and back, the London 2012 Olympic cycle route out to Box Hill, & BHF London to Brighton.. where my love for cycling began!
Also check out @dirtywknd for their weekly rides and trips organised for next year, always something fun rides happening.
Have you done a sportive not on the list? I’d love to get even more recommendations!

More bling for my collection - and look at the size of that Classics medal! 🏅
Felt very privileged to become one of the first people to enter the London Classics hall of fame yesterday, having completed the London Marathon, Ride London 100 and Swim Serpentine 2mile all in 2017.
Swam the 2mi Swim Serpentine this morning and was very pleased to get around without any cramps or stopping! Happy with that seeing how underprepared I was for the event. 🏊♀️
Then dashed off to join the legendary @jess180790 for a small part of her epic 184mi journey along the Thames Path from source to end 😱 Despite having covered over 150mi already this week, she was smiling and in great spirits - a total inspiration!!
#tbt to getting silly in my wetsuit before the Cholmondeley Castle Tri earlier this year. On Sat I'll be pulling it out again to take on the 2mi option at Swim Serpentine. Haven't done any distance swimming in months but it'll all be worth it for that London Classics medal!
