I have been racing triathlon since 2012 and have found that Olympic and half Ironman are my favourite distance to race…enough to take the sprint away but not enough to race all day!
My favourite race to date was Bala middle distance in 2013 (even though the run destroyed me!!), it was a tough but fantastic race that I would definitely do again. I decided to take up triathlon when I saw a good friend partake in an Ironman, it inspired me and I thought yep, I fancy a bit of that!
I met Tony through triathlon who introduced me to TTT which led to him coaching me. I joined in January 2014 and haven’t look back. I like the structured training around target races and it means that I don’t overtrain.
I guess I’m lucky in that I don’t have a preference of discipline, I like (or hate depending what day you ask me and what session I have just done!) all three but you can’t beat a great ride out on a hot summers day on the bike.
I’d love to have other hobbies but unfortunately like many fellow triathletes I don’t have time for anything else outside of work and family.
