PROFESSIONAL TRIATHLETE

RACING AROUND THE WORLD ON SHORT LEGS

I’m a triathlete, a wandering blog writer, an adventure-seeker and an eternal dreamer.
Home is a suitcase & the people I love… Life is too short to stay in one place, drink bad wine and ride straight roads.

  • EMMA JANE BILHAM
  • Chasing dreams since 1986
  • BRITISH blood & a SWISS education
    (and two non-EU passports)
  • I USED TO BE
    a swimmer | an architect | an event manager
    scared of a lot of things
  • I LOVE
    road trips with loud music
    cycling up hills
    lots of pillows
  • YOU’LL FIND ME
    up a mountain on my bike
    at the international departures gate
    in a coffee shop writing a BLOG

  • BIG SMILE
    (unless you get very unlucky)
  • spontaneous | adventurous | 100 thoughts a minute
  • Putting my HEART & SOUL
    into everything I do
  • BOTTOMLESS STOMACH
    please feed peanut butter & chocolate
    (in large quantities)
  • Unshakeable habit of following
    GUT INSTINCT
    rather than intellect on most decisions
  • Frustratingly SHORT LEGS
    (I just make them move fast)
IT’S ABOUT RACING

BUT NOT ONLY

It’s about racing. It’s about the sweat and the tears and the emotion of a brutal endurance sport.
But it’s also about exploring and discovering a world where success isn’t measured in podiums and results, but in smiles and laughter and shared coffees along the road
