Family Matthews travelled to Jindabyne last week set in the beautiful Australian snowy mountains which always seems to generate some writing inspiration… It was my first experience of a ‘workcation’ where I worked half days in the mornings and then had the afternoons to enjoy time exploring the area with the family. I found it […]

Last Sunday I participated in the Real Insurance Sydney Harbour 10k running race on a beautiful winter’s day. It was a race of two halves for me and I thought I’d share my reflections in case they resonated with others. I had a performance goal for the race of sub 42 minutes and was excited […]

Last Sunday I returned to longcourse triathlon racing and completed Western Sydney 70.3 (for those not connected to the triathlon world, this involves a 1.9km swim, 90km bike ride and a 21km run). 70.3 miles in total – which I hadn’t initially made the connection to the event name 😂😂. It had been over 5 […]
