Four best achievements from 2013

As the end of the year approaches and I start to do some posts looking back (end of year statistics and end of year questionaire following in the next two days!), I wanted to highlight the fivethings that I was most proud of achieving this year, that I did not expect to achieve at the start of 2013, although one of them I hoped to achieved.

I could write more about all of these experiences, but I'll just link to the relevant posts.  As my mood is particularly low at present, it's good to remember that I can surpass my own expectations and achieve some pretty awesome things - by both my standards and other people's.

1.  Completing a half marathon and doing so in under 2 hours AND negatively splitting it.

2. My first ever first place in a race (even if I was disappointed with my time) and trophy!

3. Being featured in a National magazine talking about mental health and triathlonHere is a link to the article which I have found online.

4. Completing a half ironman.

5. Racing for Team GB at the Age Group World Aquathlon Championships (and consequently becoming the 45th best 25-29 year old IN THE WORLD at Aquathlon).


  1. Congrats on a great year--cannot wait to see what 2014 brings!

  2. These are amazing achievements and all in one year, too. You should be justifiably proud of them. You've also been brave, a wonderful advocate for Mind and a good friend in 2013. Best wishes for 2014.
