Have you always been into sport?
No. It was only since 2012 when I thought that I ought to start doing some form of exercise. I ended up buying a hybrid bike on the cycle to work scheme and then started to cycle commute most days.
How did you first get into triathlon?
After I started cycling a friend of mine roped me into taking part in a relay triathlon. I really enjoyed it and thought that triathlon looked like fun, so I bought some trainers and started to run alongside the cycling. One thing led to another and here we are!
What has been your favourite race to date and why?
I love the Wimbeball 70.3 on Exmoor. I have done it a couple of times. The hills and scenery are amazing. But, I have to go with Penzance triathlon, mainly because I came first in my age group on the day. Plus, the swim in Jubilee Pool is amazing.
What is your proudest achievement?
I have had some good results in the Cornish triathlon season. I am really pleased with the outcome of some of those events.
Have you ever had any racing disasters?
Yes, Falmouth triathlon in 2018. The swim was really choppy and I ended up pulling out after the first loop. Clearly a lack of open water swimming experience.
How do you overcome setbacks?
Try and try again. It's all part of the learning process.
What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?
It's all for fun! Not every event and session has to be a race. We all do this for fun as well.
What are your goals?
To be the best that I can be. There is always someone faster out there, so as long as I am happy with my results that's all that matters.
Who inspires you?
The Brownlee Brothers. Also anyone who has overcome personal issues to push themselves to where they are today.
