Inspiration for the Politie Triathlon

On Saturday I completed my second last triathlon of the season, the Politie Triathlon (the one that I have been putting all my efforts into).

I’d been watching quite a lot of sport during the week and I really took some inspiration from two athletes that I had seen.  Interesting neither were British, which for me […]

Instead of their usual weekend Local Goods Market, they organised a special Neighbourhood Market, inviting organisations and entrepreneurs from the neighbourhood […]

ATAC Workshop

A couple of weeks ago, Natalie from PhysioMatters and I gave a workshop at ATAC – the Amsterdam Triathlon and Cycling club.

I’ve been a member at ATAC for more than a year now, and the idea to give a workshop there was a way of giving something back to the club. Also, I know […]
