My triathlon journey started around 6 years ago when I decided I’d like to give one a go as I was looking for a bit of focus regards keeping fit. I’d done a little bit of weekend running and the odd venture out cycling mainly with family but couldn’t swim more than a couple of lengths. I joined the tri-club and gave the technique swimming classes a go and once I was confident enough started popping along to the group sessions. I really appreciated the coaches’ enthusiasm and the inclusivity around the sessions, this encouraged me to give the group cycling and running a go.
My first triathlon was our very own Deva in 2014 which was a bit of disaster with me crossing the finish line vowing never again! Later that evening I entered another race and have been hooked ever since. I have competed in a number triathlons as well as individual running/cycling events at various distances, apart from a full distance Ironman which is my next challenge!
