My blog is the platform on which I started my journey beyond the mud. Outdoor sport has taken me to some amazing places and taught me a huge amount about myself. It has helped me push my mind and body out of my comfort zone and driven me to achieve far more than I ever thought possible, I am enjoying the ride to discover more about myself and encourage others to get outdoors, beyond the mud.
As a professional writer, I have written for a variety of magazines including Outdoor Fitness, Outdoor Enthusiast, Total Women’s Cycling, IMB Magazine and Sport Sister.
Please get in touch with any ideas on how we can work together.
