I* am writing another blog post because I feel like posting on a blog is what you’re supposed to do. However, there is a problem: I don’t feel any need for this kind of thing. I’m not a natural sharer (er, in real life I probably share way more information than you ever wanted, but that’s fun...right? Amiright?). I don’t want to tweet and blog...I want to ride my bike (and go for a run...and I’ll swim if really pushed to find a reason not to write/e-mail/tweet).
So...this week you’re getting a quick low down of the important things in my life, a little snippet into the Things an Ali Needs to survive:
So here I am, start of my first season as a Pro triathlete. It took a hell of a lot of work to get here, years of which predated any thought of triathlon. Although still a long way from my first race of 2014 I already have many people to thank.
Thanks for stopping by! Have a look around my new webpage and let me know what you think - it is a work in progress. Hopefully it will provide a place where I can keep everyone updated on my travels, races and adventures, and also a place to showcase my partners, without whom I wouldn't be here providing you with such entertaining reading material!
2013 was my first year as a triathlete, and it has renewed my passion for all things sport. I was over joyed to receive my endorsement from British Triathlon to compete in the Pro ranks in 2014, and can't wait to get over to my winter training base in Spain to begin my 2014 campaign.
Things will really be kicking off at Abu Dhabi in March, but until then I'll be out trying to improve my swim, bike and run times...come along for the ride!
Hi, I'm Ali. I like riding bikes and coaching people to achieve their athletic goals. I've been coaching for more than 10 years now and have never failed to make an athlete faster (I can't quite believe this myself either). I used to race bikes, triathlon and in 2014 I broke 9 vertebrae and my skull. Follow my journey here and on Twitter.
