Disgustingly, hideously obsessed.

I took a day off today. Reason being, I had a job interview in a distant land, and wanted to make a good impression. Read: not arrive at all tired, and not race off in a hurry. Truth is, training usually wakes me up rather than makes me tired but in this case I wanted to be extra-extra sure. And I wanted to leave at the crack of dawn to ensure actually getting there on time (I did. Several hours early.. but it was nice to explore 🙂 and it turned out to be a rather good interview.)

As a result, having arrived home, I have spent a good few hours sitting on my floor:
Pitching an idea to a magazine, tidying up a few articles… annd… googling past race results and analysing them in an exercise in target practice.

This confirms one thing: I am disgustingly, hideosly obsessed.
Now all I have to do is channel the obsession in the right direction and get faster.

That and make sure I learn shorthand and pass all NCTJ examms by 13th December…and find a way of fitting a 20 day internship into less than 20 days in order to get the job from today. Not too much to do then..

I'm an NCTJ Journalist and work at Cycling Weekly. Previous to this, I was the Editor at Total Women's Cycling. I've also dabbled in marketing and copywriting - having been Marketing Coordinator and Social Media/Content Editor at Evans Cycles. My first job was working on a local newspaper.  I've written for a variety of titles on a freelance basis, too. I got into cycling when I entered my first triathlon in 2010. I now race crits, road races, time trials, and do a lot of track training for not very much track racing.
