My coach isn't just a coach, he's also mad and has a big heart! He's currently running a marathon around his garden (2110 laps!) to raise money for the NHS for extra equipment or to support the staff. All this in his canoeing kit! 9km to go! Have a watch, share and donate. Link in bio!

For a cricket loving guy, Grandpa certainly had a good innings. 100 years, 171 days. Glad that coronavirus didn't reach him and wasn't what bowled him out, just slipping away in his sleep. So grateful I managed to see him a few weeks ago. Will miss his cheeky sense of humour and his big smile. I can only wish I will still be climbing munros into my 80s and still doing crosswords into my 100s! Whenever I fill my birdfeeders I'll think of the grin and wave he would give me out of his window when I filled his birdfeeders so he could still watch the birds even from his armchair. Certainly the end of an era; I'll keep enjoying the odd gin and odd whisky "under doctor's orders"! 🍸πŸ₯ƒ Dr. Don D. Pennie 12th October 1919 - 31st March 2020

Happy Mother's Day to this legend and all the other Mums who can't be with their big kids today. Although us kids have to wait quite a while to see you Mums again, I'm sparing a thought for those who can only dream they could see their Mums again one more time. πŸ‘©β€πŸ‘§ You've had a super tough year and blitzed it @maureenpennie. Now you might actually be forced to sit down and take things a bit easier for a few months!

Saturdays: my other life where I have to use my legs and it's not all about me! πŸ‘ Disappointing 2-1 loss. Awesome bits of play in there including the great passing all the way up the field to deliver me a ball to put in the net! πŸ₯… πŸ‘ πŸ“·: Thanks to @geogshutts for the support and the cracking photos! #hockey @walthamforesthc #Saturdayjob #hockeyfamily

Piloting my way down some warmer whitewater under the sun. 🌞 Grateful for the opportunity to lose the winter cag, wetsuit trousers, wetsuit socks, neoprene hat and extra thermals in place of a more slimline look for a total of 4 weeks this winter! Warm weather paddling really does bring another level to the training in preparation for the season that's just around the corner! πŸ‘Š A BIG THANK YOU to all those who play the National Lottery who give us this opportunity! πŸ™ β€’ πŸ“Έ:@rwestley @tnluk @uk_sport @british.canoeing @theglenturretwhisky @peakukkayaking @vajdakayaks @gpowerpaddles #ByHandAndByHeart #ShePaddles #ThisGirlCan #CanoeSlalom #Kayak #WinterTraining

This year we thought we would do our tiny, tiny, tiny bit to save the planet and not post our Christmas cards. So here's our alternative card; excuse Lynsey's just woken up from a nap look! πŸ₯΄ Looking forward to spending our FIRST Christmas together with our families. Wishing everybody a wonderful Christmas and look forward to catching up with you all in the new decade!

Fun session with the old training buddy @rwestley this morning, we were just missing @joeclarkek1 though! πŸ˜₯ The water is getting colder and colder so we're super thankful for our new @peakukkayaking Semi ST's! I was literally overheating this morning. Fresh kit always guarantees a smile....even from Ryan!!

Mind blowing moments throughout. One of those being trying to comprehend the 1.8 million tonnes of debris that were removed from this spot. #9/11 #Memorial

Whoop! Another win!! Gutted we'll be missing next week's match with being in New York.
