About

Happiest when I have a race to train for and an adventure to set out on…. from Rower, to Marathoner, to Triathlete, to the iconic Ironman event… I write about my experiences and try to provide helpful tips when ever I find something that works for me.

It’s been a journey: When I was a rower I would tell people that I’m not a runner. When I got into running, I couldn’t swim. When I learned to swim, I got into triathlon. As a triathlete, I would say there is no way I am crazy enough for an Ironman… and here I am.

I don’t always nail my priorities but overall I’ve found a strange balance between learning new skills, competitive training and normal life stuff.

When I started Live Loosley, I tried to identify with the fitness/ health and wellness industry; but it doesn’t accurately reflect my ethos… I’m just a girl, with a competitive mindset, who needs an outdoor active outlet, who loves to travel and eat good food, and who enjoys writing about it.
