Shop Sundried's Triathlon Collection

Have you always been into sport?

Any excuse to be outside! I have always loved sport and did a lot of athletics when I was growing up – I couldn't use to imagine wanting to run more than 1500m!

How did you first get into triathlon?

I was bored and looking for a new challenge during lock-down, instead of doing some internet shopping I entered a half-Ironman distance triathlon (not being able to do more than 2 lengths of front crawl at this point!). Maybe slightly crazy but I think that was the beginning of my addiction.

If you are interested in getting into Triathlon, Sundried's kit is suitable for beginners as well as seasoned athletes. We have both men's and women's options available.

What has been your favourite race to date and why?

I think it has to be the Outlaw Half Nottingham last year. Firstly it's on home soil, secondly it was a measure of how much I'd improved in 1 year of training - knocking off 30 minutes from my first one which I was really proud of.

What is your proudest achievement?

Crossing the finish line at Berlin marathon this year, I hadn't been feeling well leading up to the race but I stuck to my race plan and smashed my PB! 

Have you ever had any racing disasters?

“Get off your bike…get off your bike…GET OFF YOUR BIKE!!!” Yes, I missed the dismount line and got disqualified from my first ever duathlon. I was really gutted as it was a qualification event for the Age Group World Champs, but rules are rules!

How do you overcome setbacks?

I think of them as a challenge to not be defeated by (e.g. I'll never miss a dismount line again). A setback only make the PB sweeter!

What advice do you wish you'd been given when you first started out?

Join a tri club. It's a great way to meet like-minded people to train with, and there's nothing like a group swim session to make you swim faster!

What are your goals?

To keep enjoying the sport and stay injury free. I wouldn't mind another 30 minutes knocked off of my 70.3 time either!

Who inspires you?

Beryl Burton. My Mum bought me a book about her (Beryl by Jeremy Wilson), her story is truly inspiring. She was an incredible role model for women in sport.

Why work with Sundried?

I am conscious about doing my bit for the environment, and being a PhD student I am on a tight budget. I am proud to champion a brand that is ethical, sustainable and doesn’t break the bank!
