2015 WRAP UP

You know it’s been a tough year when you have a small but persistent season long injury, get hit by a car, and have to deal with an unprecedented amount of things affecting your career yet simultaneously are out of your control. Needless to say it’s been a rocky season, but it has also been amazing and now that our time in Europe has come to the end I can reflect on all the good things. Here’s an overview of the places I’ve raced and trained and how I rate them (out of 10)…
