Temporary switch from blogging to Instagram

Hello everyone, hope you are all well and staying at home, following whatever rules apply where you are. We are all missing training and watching sport, it could be a long time before we get to do that again. Let's hang in there, support each other and stay safe.

I am not updating the blog during this time. You can find me on Instagram chatting about the same things we talked about here. It feels like a time to be more personal and direct.

Sport is all about categories, weights, divisions and labels but sometimes you meet someone who crosses over those boxes and simply does her own thing. You could call Greta Streimikyte an athlete, a runner, a visually-impaired woman, a graduate, a trainer, a European champion, a Paralympian or an achiever and you'd be right but for her it's all just living.

The Grass Ceiling in Irish sport

Films about women in sport can be fluffy, but not The Grass Ceiling. Watching the trailer you're left with one line running around in your head: engine not ornament.
