I’ve really enjoyed being interviewed for various podcasts, blogs, newspapers and magazines about mountain running, adventure racing and my two books, Mud, Sweat and Tears (2011) and Bump, Bike and Baby (2018).
I spoke to the brand new Outsider Magazine Podcast about the Wicklow Round and juggling training with starting a family. Have a listen here.
Outsider Magazine also wrote a brilliant review of Bump, Bike and Baby. Apparently my “ability to train right up to my due date will dispel any rumours that your life as an athlete must come to an end the minute you pee on that stick.”
I was really privileged to speak with Helen Murray of Oxygen Addict Triathlon Podcast about what it takes to compete in adventure races. You can listen to the interview here.
It was lovely chatting with coach, Laura Fountain of Lazy Girl Running, about combining training and racing with raising a young family. The podcast can be heard here.
I shared with The Running Bug my top tips for runners who are thinking of starting a family, for women who want to keep active while pregnant, and for new parents.
Podium Cafe did a thorough review of Bump, Bike and Baby, suggesting that “Far too many recent books telling stories about ‘ordinary’ people taking on extraordinary bike-based challenges have been written from a point of view that excludes spouses and family commitments. Bump, Bike & Baby is a breath of fresh air and shows that the two can be mixed while still telling a story that can inspire and amuse in equal measures.”
I was so chuffed that my hometown paper, the Derry Journal have featured both my books. The review of Bump, Bike and Baby can be found here, and of Mud, Sweat and Tears is available here.
And, last but definitely not least, my local paper the Newry Reporter christened me ‘Mountain Momma’. It doesn’t get better than that!
