Level 2 Coach
I love triathlon and would encourage anyone, whatever age or ability to have a go. I didn’t start triathlon until I was about to retire from work, and decided I didn’t want to take up knitting and sit in front of the TV. My first triathlon was at the Nottingham Water Sports Centre and from then on, I was hooked. I’ve done over 50 triathlons from Sprint distance, where I’ve represented Great Britain in my Age Group and been European Champion twice, to one 70.3 distance, and a few in between.
I took up coaching a couple of years ago so that if I had to stop doing triathlons, then at least I could keep in touch coaching triathletes. I get a terrific buzz coaching swimmers and runners, to see someone develop their swim stroke and their running style is so rewarding.
