For the athlete in everyone – Tri Harder
If you see me in a race the first thing you will notice is that I probably have the skinniest legs you’ve ever seen! I have been in to sport and exercise my whole life but until 2006 my main focus was football. A friendly challenge to race a triathlon was put before me and my tri ‘career’ was underway. As I was training for my first Olympic distance tri, a friend of mine was embarking on his first Ironman and I quickly knew this was where I was heading! I had hoped that 2008 would be my year but unfortunately broke my leg badly playing football and spent the next year with a metal pin in my right leg and this meant my hopes of Ironman were gone.
I had to wait until 2009 to get my medal and tattoo after racing Ironman UK in Bolton. As soon as I had finished I knew I would be doing it again! I love training and racing for triathlon and can talk for ever on the subject! Like many, new kit is one of the great delights of triathlon and cycling so owning Tri Harder is a dream job!
