I thought it was about time I wrote another blog and let you know what I’ve been up to for the last month or so. I’ve been really busy, finishing work, presenting awards, lots of training in the gym, Lifeboat Tea Extreme Tea campaing, MK SnoZone and my best friends wedding!
Back at the beginning of July I was invited as a celebrity guest at Durham Johnston School sports presentation evening, where I was given the honour of handing out some of the awards to many budding sports stars! It was a huge privileged to be part of such a great event!
I’ve been training hard with John, my new strength and conditioning coach who has been putting me through my paces and making sure I will be ready to go for the winter! I’ve also been doing some work with Daniel Cleal at Vitality Life Fitness Vitality Life Fitness who is based in Brighton. He has been focusing on my posture and movement efficiency, making sure everything is working as effectively as it can. With Daniel I have done a lot of corrective exercise and seen massive improvements in my basic posture through working with him… This guy is a miracle worker!
Lara at Lifeboat Tea (my new sponsor) sent me a load of Lifeboat Tea stash to promote their “Extreme Tea” campaign which I am an ambassador for! So keep an eye for me in the orange colours of Lifeboat Tea! The “Extreme Tea” campaign was launched just over a month ago and through them I had my first page 3 appearance in the Sunday Sun… Fully clothed I may add… Click here for the link to the news story! I was a great news story, but I must apologise to my current ski sponsor Head, goggle sponsor Big Bear/ POC and clothing sponsor Animal… The news paper used a very old photo of me without my knowledge with products I no longer endorse… Sorry Guys!
Last week I was at Milton Keynes SnoZone helping out at a combined Ski and Boarder Cross camp. The camp provided an opportunity for young budding skiers and snow boarders to try out Ski and Boarder Cross and also for me to introduce the world of skiing to Lifeboat Tea and the Extreme Tea Campaign! We had a mini Extreme photo shoot to see who could get the best shot whilst skiing, but unfortunately my photo skills were lacking!! Click here for the photos.
One of my best friends, Dee got married last weekend. Wow, what a stress!! I won’t be getting married for a while! I was blindly buying suits for my boyfriend 1 day before the wedding hoping they would fit… The suit fitted, but 20 minutes before the wedding I was in a local supermarket getting a shirt and tie as my shopping skills lacked in the shirt size front! Anyway, I made it to the wedding just in time! The day came together, my best friend looked beautiful and everyone had a perfect day!
Well, I must dash… I’m busy booking flights to Argentina to compete in two ski cross races at the beginning of September. It’s all go now and my new Lifeboat Tea bag is packed and ready for it’s first trip of many Ski Cross races!
