Welcome to #TeamSportPursuit

Welcome to my Blog. My aims are to blog on all my training activities to follow my journey in triathlon – from non-swimmer to Ironman triathlete.

This is my first blog from #teamsportpursuit webpage – a team place I won as part of a competition BACKDATED FROM 5th JUNE 2013

“After the phenomenal response to our Ironman Bolton Competition earlier this year; we’re proud to introduce the five athletes who will be running for Team SportPursuit this Summer! The competition was stiff, but these five Ironmen and women stood out amongst the rest of an (already extremely impressive) group!”

Anything we should know?
I have a dog called Chilli who acts as my training buddy for recovery runs and hill reps!

Ironman experience to date?
None yet! First event will be the Wimbleball 70.3 later this month.

The dream finish time?
12 Hours

Why do you want to be a part of the challenge?
My Ironman plan was to do Austria in 2014 and just do a half this year, but training has gone so well and I have raced all the individual Ironman distances this year (first 3.8km swim in Coniston last weekend)!

Your Ironman Bolton kit list?
I haven’t planned this far ahead but it will definitely involve a lot of check lists being written.

If you could have one super power what would it be?
An ability to read minds – so I can tell if others were as smashed and in pain as me!
