Follow me on Instagram and Facebook and find out what I am getting up to ... taking part in a 70.3 half ironman... a long distance swim... a crazy bike ride....
I left the corporate world in 2015 to pursue my dream of becoming a personal trainer and to share my love of sport and fitness.
My love of of sport started in my 20s when I took up running.. starting with my first ever 5 mile race (I still have the medal) and then building up to marathon distance. I have taken part in over 10 marathons including London. Due to injury, I started to swim to keep myself fit and then before I knew it I was taking part in my first ever triathlon at Dorney Lake on a mountain bike!
As I turned 40 in 2013, I set myself a challenge to complete my first half ironman. With an excellent coach, I completed Cotswold 113 in June of 2014 (still 40!) in a respectable time of 5hrs 35mins. Still looking for my next challenge, I signed up to a 'proper' half ironman 70.3 (with all the branding!) and headed to Barcelona in 2015 - the hardest earned medal ever but what an amazing experience. In August 2017 I completed my first, and probably my last, Ironman Vichy 2.4mile swim, 112mile bike and 26.2mile run in 13hrs 43mins and 58secs
