These are a few of our favourite things...
Theres lots of good stuff going on in the world - here is a selection of small businesses, people and places that we really like:
Gifts and Mementos for Athletes
If you're looking for a special gift or a way to celebrate an event, Treehuggery create fabulous artworks using reclaimed material and can incorporate special elements to make it truly unique and personal
If you're looking for something to help motivate or celebrate, The Crafty Jack produce handmade and personalised items with a sporting theme - trainer tags and key rings are a favourite
Not specifically for athletes but athletes need carbs and alongside being a triathlete and open water swimmer, this lady can teach you to make some of the finest carbs around and also offers excellent accommodation.
If you are in need of Physiotherapy in Nottinghamshire, we like Kerstine Herbert - an accomplished ultra runner herself, she also provides specialist services for runners.
Everyone should have the opportunity to enjoy the freedom and fun of water - Splashing Stars provide a unique swimming environment for children with additional needs
If you have the triathlon bug, consider joining our governing body: the British Triathlon Federation. They offer a range of membership schemes with different benefits - if you race regularly, its worth joining for the race licence
