Welcome to my blog! I am a 38-year old amateur triathlete with a passion for life and love of the great outdoors, be it on foot, mountain bike, road bike or snowboard. I am joined on many of these adventures by my loyal companion; Chilli the Labrador retriever. I Love to run and cycle and have done these both as a way of trying to keep fit for several years.
My introduction into triathlon happened one day when I was bored at the gym just after moving to Hertfordshire and I decide I wanted to learn to swim front crawl. So why not just learn to swim like most normal people would? Well, I love a challenge so I figured back in 2011 If I entered a triathlon I would have no choice but to sink or swim – literally! Luckily, on my first triathlon, the ladies only ‘shock absorber’ Eton sprint I managed to not sink! Albeit I half swam, half doggy paddled, until I got around the 400m open water swim.
