The Race to the Top Having spent a few days in the mountains. The following thoughts ran through the mind whilst meandering my way around the peaks of Snowdonia. 1) How tackling mountains relate to life! 2) Don’t let failures define you So how exactly does life mirror a day in the mountain? Well these are my thoughts. Dreaming of Success We all have dreams of reaching the top of something or being the best we can be, but have we all got what it takes to turn dreams into reality?

My Take on New Years Resolutions As January approaches an end, how many of us have already blown the New Year Resolution of diet, sobriety, training, weight loss or even that goal of trying to be an all round better person!! And then following this all to easy crumble of will power had the frustration and depressive feelings of realising that January is just another month and 2019 is just another number and that they weren’t a new dawn! And the start of a new you. When this happens and resolutions are broken, the easiest thing is to just give up

World Gone Mad Now my year review could all be about the sunshine, beach and great photos but no, no and no say it as you see it! As another year comes to an end, what can you say? The world appears to be going mad, maybe even the beginning of the end, if you are to believe some conspiracy theorist. We seem to live in a world where complete strangers feel the need to tell people how they should live their lives or if you speak out with your opinion you are labelled!!! They tell you what to eat,

The Next Challenge As November strikes this means the end of 2018 is in sight and our thoughts start to focus on 2019 and what will our goals be for the year ahead. What will motivate you to train throughout the winter, encourage you get out there, be healthier and give you a focus through the dark and gloomy months! For some this is simple, they have clear goals for the coming year and know what they have to do to get there. If Ironman or similar is your thing, you maybe looking at a few open water swims or sportives to give you

The Amman Adventure 2018 Two weeks ago we had to postpone the Amman Adventure due to a biblical like downpour. A quick turn around meant that half the original field could not make the event, which is a shame but we thank them for their understanding and look forward to seeing the vast majority in the next TdS. For those who did make it, there seems to be one theme of conversation going around the Amman Utd Club House after the ride. That the Climb up the Black Mountain was a very windy one! and the descent was even windier with riders

The Blue Monster Results 2018 The First staging of the Blue Monster started off with a Rainbow sprawling across the course, Which did nothing but to add to the rugged beauty of Abereiddy Bay. Which actually looked flat from the beach! But as the Swimmers headed out towards the Irish Sea, the wind definitely picked up and by the time the swimmers got back to the beach for an Aussie Exit, To head back out in a North Direction, towards the blue lagoon. The wind and chop had picked up making it feel like the swimmers were on a preverbal

Pencarnan Run Series 2018 And finally week 4 of the Pencarnan Run Series has been and gone, it was a blustery night on the western tip of Wales and with the view of the swell breaking over St David’s Head it was a far cry from the first few heat soaked runs! But we can’t complain can we. The night also saw the championship decided It is no surprise that Tom David, kept his crown as the 3K champion. This lad had some heafty competition throughout the series from all sorts from around the UK and held his own and more on

The Little Haven Regatta Swim   As the first swimmer approached the finish line on Little Haven Slipway, the time keepers heard a voice behind them say, “Here comes the first man home” to which the timekeeper said “It could be a woman” to which the voice said “Ha Ha as if” then seconds later 21 year old Pembrokeshire girl Hollie Thomas emerges out of the water having lead from start to finish! Thomas was followed by the First Male Jonathan Harwood then 3rd and 4th place were occupied by the first male vet Kevin Wheeler and first female vet

Pencarnan Run Weeks 3 – Kids Run – Results Once again great to see so many very small ones running with their parent, family friends and grandparents. It really does promote the fun element of it. Meanwhile up in the top 3 Tom David had his toughest race of the series, With Sam Griffiths and Finley Bruce staying with him and pushing him all the way to the end. With the first lady not far behind these 3 coming in at 6th overall was Emma Grittens and about 90 seconds behind her was Tom’s younger sister Katie David with the
