The Dream Roll Blog 10 - Home Race

Today I thought I would write a little about this weekend’s upcoming road race and how important this weekend is to me in today’s Dream Roll blog.

As Elite athletes we compete day in day out somewhere around the world from London to Tokyo to New York and everywhere between and often we race with out support of many people at the race. We very rarely get to compete in front of family and friends but when the opportunity arises we love it no matter what and I would never miss an event in my home town for anything because without the support from this truly incredible town over the many years throughout my career I wouldn’t have been able to achieve what I have so far in my career so thank you to everyone for your huge input in my life.

My first two weeks was spent in a small village called Nottwil, just 20 minutes by local train from my favourite city in Europe – Luzern. I spent this time with the Australian wheelchair track team at the Swiss series, which comprises two track meets and a marathon. Unfortunately, it rained the whole time and was so, so cold; it even snowed, so you can imagine that it was fun to race in these conditions.

Welcome to another addition of the dream roll. Today I will share my experiences from a very crazy week I had recently. Every week is busy in the life of athletes - even the easy weeks are full on - but this one particular week was so crazy due to the fact I broke my record of number of countries I have visited in a week.

The Dream Roll - Blog 5 Peachtree 10km

The annual trip to Atlanta is always an interesting experience for anyone. Each year something strange and ever lasting will happen.

As an Australian and a wheelchair athlete, I have heard every strange question in Atlanta: from, ‘Can you drive to Australia?’ (My response being, ‘Yes, drive to LA, turn south west and keep going till you get to Australia.)
