The life of an ultrarunner who loves to explore the world
Under trained, under prepared, low on confidence - I was just aiming to make it to the finish line. But things didn't turn out the way I expected.
A hot and humid 70 km trail race in the forests of northern Vietnam.
Could you run for 10 hours on a 2.1 km loop in the middle of the Bangkok summer?
A 50 km trail run, my first running event in Thailand.
An unusual distance triathlon, used as preparation for my upcoming Olympic distance tri.
Time to try a triathlon! See how I coped (or floundered) on my first attempt. Open-water swimming can't be that hard, right?
Could you beat the train? A point-to-point race through the mountainous Dandenong Ranges with one aim: get to the finish line before the train does.

A 45 km trail ultramarathon, starting at
1 a.m. in the cool mountains of Thailand.
My first ultra, a 50 km trail run in Victoria, Australia.
Up and down 5800 steps inside Perth's biggest sporting stadium.
It took me a long time to reach the start line of a half marathon. Would all of my preparation pay off?

100 kilometres through the incredible rice fields of Sapa.
A 70 km overnight ultra on some of the most technical trails in Thailand.
A flat and fast road half marathon held on the streets of Bangkok.
An Olympic distance triathlon, my longest tri to date.
My first marathon, on a semi-hilly course through the streets of Perth.
A 13.2 km scenic run through Victoria's popular Yarra Valley wine region.
My first ever race, a popular 5.5 km road run through the heart of Melbourne. To say I was not prepared would be an understatement.
