A few years ago I was over 16 stone and couldn’t run a bath let alone complete a triathlon or half marathon. Within 6 months I completed my first half marathon and lost over 3 stone. I’ve now completed many half marathons, sprint and Olympic distance triathlons. I’m now looking forward to doing my first marathon and ironman in the near future. I love inspiring others to make a positive change like I have. I regularly take part in local events from parkruns, cross country running to triathlons and duathlons. I’m also part of a small local running group that helps people start running by doing C25k training programs. I’m not one that takes it too seriously, I enjoy what I do and I believe I inspire others and help them enjoy their fitness journey as well. :)
