“I represent Total Tri Training in the South East having relocated recently from Chester in 2017. Outside of triathlon I will mostly be found, skiing, cooking and eating! 
From a sporting background throughout my life, taking up triathlon was a natural progression to take my passion to performance.  Since racing triathlon I have developed considerably as an athlete in all 3 disciplines and have helped many other athletes achieve their goals. My favourite distance to race is middle distance (70.3) as fits best with my personal strengths – racing hard and fast over a considerable amount of time, endurance racing is definitely my forte. My first ever triathlon was Dorney Lake sprint in 2009 and my favourite race to date was the IM 70.3 Pays d’Aix. It was such a fair course, a beautiful lake swim, a hilly bike leg and a warm run around the town. Although for atmosphere I have not found anything to beat Challenge Roth! Bring on 2019 when I make a return to racing having taken a year off!
