This week I attended a party in London for the launch of the CSDST ski team 2014/15 season. It was a great evening and lovely to catch up with some old ski friends. Chemmy Olcott and Dougie Crawford were there to wish the CSDST luck for the season along with some very high ranking and extremely pleasant people from all the Combined Services. It was a great evening.
Next week is going to be busy as I have been invited to The Woman of the Year awards in London… that should be exciting…what on earth am I going to wear?
At the end of the week it is the Canterbury and District Sports Awards 2014 at Kent University. I am lucky enough to have been nominated for the Disabled Sports Performer of the year. I am really looking forward to this event as it is on my home turf.
I start training again at the end of next week, in Austria for a few days with my Team. They are out there now – without me L – but I need to be at school to study for my GCSE’s. Then I am training with my old guide Jen Kehoe who has just come back from rupturing her ACL back in December last year. I am looking forward to training with her again.
Today I have been asked to be a Patron to the Atlantic Lions Challenge. Matt Townsend, Charlie Hayward, Joe Mile and Dave Middleton are going to row across the Atlantic in the 2015 Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Rowing Race in aid of the MS Trust. It’s going to be tough! I am so proud to be involved with these guys.
I also have a new sponsor in Kurio. They produce tailor made compression garments for athletes. I have just been sent my bespoke leggings. They give the most amazing support to your leg muscles. I am going to live in them. Thank you.
Thank you for taking the time to read my blog. I will keep you all posted as to how the training goes.
