Today was the Gippsland Gold mixed terrain Audax ride starting in Yarragon organised by @melbournerandonneur I did the 200km. About 50% gravel with awesome food and beautiful riding to be had. Had a great group to ride with which made 200km fly by! Thanks to the turbo engine of @lisenh11 too! Thanks Gareth and all the excellent and enthusiastic volunteers #gippygold #gippygold2019 #gravelgrinding #ridelikeagirl #schwalbeaus #adidassporteyewear
That was a huge day. 12 hrs out riding and keeping everyone motivated and moving. @shel_rides_melbs was the first down in our harrietvillle bunchie as someone was heavy on the brakes. I landed on Shel injury free and had nowhere to go. Shel’s bike was the thing stopping her from continuing. Playing catch up to @watch_out_for_bad_fats and Crossy we had a great day. Big bunches. Making up our lost time. Heaps of fun #peakschallengefallscreek

Happy Monday to me. An 11km paddle followed by a swim. Heavenly. #prohours #mondays #sunshine
Big weekend. Racing the Gazebo 3hr in close to 40 degree heat by the end and coming 2nd in women’s A grade. A blessing that today’s road race was canceled due to total fire ban and heat. So we went swimming this morning instead! #everydayisablessing #everydayisaholiday #ridelikeagirl #weekends
Fam time in Kilmore with bro sis and bro in law. Nice to hang with the family on a beautiful night for a great occasion. Congratulations Steph and Chris. Xxx
As summer starts to turn to autumn the mornings are cooler but it’s still worth going for a swim 🏊♀️ #openwaterswimming #easternbeach #goodmorning
Beach time. It’s been a while.
...and finally...new toy day is here.
It’s the small things that bring me the most joy. #goodmorning #maxieboy
FREEDOM on 2 wheels. I’m really looking forward to doing my first “mixed terrain” Audax ride on 16th March, the 200km Gippsland Gold. Thanks @melbournerandonneur for the pending fun to be had! #gravelgrinder #ridelikeagirl #gippygold
Refuel. Regenerate. Revive. Two days flat out racing. Not super long in time but super hard emotionally and physically. It’s time to feel alive again with my fave meal #lunch #plantbased #plantbasedathlete #wheredoyougetyourprotein #beetrootjuice #vegan #veganfood #foodismedicine
HUGE weekend. It was my 13th Otway Odyssey and it hurt as usual. Mindset was strong. Thanks for the push from behind @imogenjsmith and thanks to every single female that raced or participated over the weekend in all the events. My first Otway took 8hrs 20 mins albeit a different course, but finish times for elites were still similar to now. It’s taken me 13 years (and I’m still learning) how to get the best out of myself. I’ve always struggled to “compete” and feel like I’m an imposter in the world of Elite performance and it’s a daily conversation I have. When you work hard, devise goals and dreams and a life that supports this it’s only natural you’ll have progression right? It’s matching that work ethic and deserved mindset that’s the hardest. I guess I’m just hoping that other women out there watching and listening can see that with consistent hard work you can do amazing things. Fourth for me this year. 2 min personal best race time. Everyday is a lesson - mine was to fight the whole way and focus on self belief and knowing I’d done the work. Thanks for all the support. 📷📸Thanks for all your amazing pics again @ogaram #odysseyangels #otwayodyssey #seightcustom #ridelikeagirl #adidassporteyewear
There are your 6 x 13 Otway Odyssey 100km finishers. We hate it so much we keep coming back. We’re all hoping someone holds up the white flag so we can stop this silly business. #otwayodyssey Well done @hugekev on 2nd in your age category. So fast. So many people commenting on how super speedy you are!
Congrats to @littlemsmtb and Mel. Huge huge huge kudos to these girls and all the other #odysseyangels #rapidascent #otwayodyssey #adidassporteyewear
Did an hour blast with my man @normdouglas on the mountain bike at Anglesea this evening. We dropped into the chapel where @saskiabelle and James are getting married in October. Very nice.
Hot day on the run leg @ Geelong 70.3. Great to see you so happy @kitchintiffany after a relaxing summer holiday period.
