The plan is to work as a Personal Trainer and enjoy the lifestyle that comes with living in this part of the world. I'm mostly looking forward to being able to ski on my doorstep, improving my skiing, getting a bike and using it to commute as well as to exercise, ice skating outdoors and learning to play golf.
But, I will be back in London all the time as this is where I have forged a life for the past 21 years after moving to the UK from Barbados at the age of (almost) 7;this is also where the majority of my friends and family are. I'll even be back in mid April and again in July as I have entered the British 10km on Sunday 14th July. I'll be looking to my friends in London to keep me posted on what's happening and share their stories with me and you know when I'm back in London I will be here, there and everywhere catching up with what's new and happening!
Not all of my readership is in London however, and the fantastic things about fitness, sport and all that comes with it is that it's something we can all relate to no matter where we are in the world.
“Sport has the power to change the world. It has the power to unite in a way that little else does. It speaks to youth in a language they understand. Sport can create hope where once there was only despair. It is more powerful than governments in breaking down racial barriers. It laughs in the face of all types of discrimination.”

This is what I'll be living by! ...So! Lots of exciting stuff coming up including the Energizer Run in April, Street Pole classes (you'll find out more soon!) and I still have my 2013 goals to achieve!!!
