BT Sport Action Woman 2015

Hello and ahoy –

Life is calming down steadily after the adrenaline of Tower Bridge day over a week ago and the following media run. I am catching up on sleep and enjoying the calm and headspace of being home, spending time with friends and family.

Physically my recovery and transition is a mix of physio, sports massage, and mostly gentle exercise, in a bid to turn unhappy muscles and posture back to a happier normal.

Soon I will start work on my new book – Dare to Do – due to be published in May. Apart from a couple of already-committed events, I shall not be doing any speaking for some time as I focus on writing.

In other news, I am chuffed to have been shortlisted in the BT Sport Action Woman of the Year awards, alongside 9 other women or women’s teams. The Awards evening is December 1st and public voting is open until 23rd November. Rather short sightedly, voting is only open via Twitter – so only Twitter account holders can vote. But still, if you fancy voting for any of the nominees you can do so via the BT Sport Action Woman site here.  Even if you cannot vote, the stories of each nominee are pretty inspiring, so worth a watch.

For now, go well and thanks for all your support in these final weeks.

P.S Tickets still available for the TransGlobe Expedition Trust event at the RGS in London on 26th November. Tickets here.

P.P.S Great to see the charity totals still rising steadily. Donations gratefully accepted here.

    Hello Sarah

    Good to read your latest blog also you have solved the query as i have been trying to vote for you but couldn’t. Well done on being nominated for the award.

    Glad to hear that things are settling. Please put my name on your list for one of your books when it’s written but please will you sign it as well like you did before.

    All good wishes for now, happy resting and enjoying yourself, hope you bought some jelly babies, think perhaps you may have had enough mars bars for a few weeks.

    Take care

    Kathleen and Christine X

    Hi Sarah,
    Great to read your update, glad you are gradually recovering “normal posture” , and taking things at a slower pace….
    We can’t wait to read your next book, please save us a signed copy !! Are you planning a new DVD too!? No pressure, honest.
    Just so glad you are now home with Lucy.
    Love and hugs
    Heather and Cameron xxxx

    Hi Sarah / Sara and the rest of the team.
    After following you for 4.5 years. Listening to the highs and lows, watching the spare of the moment Chinese
    rider joining you, following passage weather and knowing you were heading for a rough ride in the pacific, starting over again the next year and ending up in those islands up north, cycling across Canada and America to start on the last leg of the L2L only to be caught up in another twister [ which you made the right decision and bailed out ].
    A couple of questions.
    Have you heard from the Chinese rider.
    What am I going to do now that you are trying to be normal.
    I don’t have to read the book [ or maybe pick up on some thing that you leave out ].
    How about naming all the people that you came across [ not that Russian border guy that made you cycle
    to another crossing ].
    it has been a great trip and I hope that you will find some other challenge in the future
    Let me know when you do
    cheers from sunny Queensland.

      Hello Dave,

      Sorry you are having trouble donating to the charities. Donating via VIrgin Money Giving is very simple – perhaps contact the giving site directly?

      Thanks

      Team L2L
