Shop Sundried's Running Collection

Have you always been into sport?

Yes, always! I absolutely love how it feels to push yourself and see you hit your goals.

How did you first get into triathlon?

I swam competitively at a young age, then when I was in my twenties joined a running group and started running competitively - after that we had the lockdown and I bought a Wattbike to train on and noticed on some rides using Zwift I was a really good cyclist - then I just put them all together.

I signed up to a qualifier event where you can represent GB in the European Championships 2022 - as my FIRST triathlon ... I didn't think I would actually qualify really - but I came 3rd in my age group. After that I qualified for the World Championships in Triathlon and in Duathlon and became a National England Champion 2021 for my age group too. So it's been a big year!

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?

My first race! It is where it all started and it was an amazing course. Southport Triathlon by Epic Events. It's a flat closed course and I wanted to do it again but the European Champs in Poland is at the same time so I'll be flying to that instead for 2022.

What is your proudest achievement?

I think becoming a mum of two girls, I had two under two and my youngest was only 18 months when I qualified to represent GB - this is my biggest and proudest achievement. I feel like it's one thing to qualify but to be full time at work and mum of two I feel extremely proud of.

Have you ever had any racing disasters?

Don't ask that! touch wood... touch wood... NO I haven't.

How do you overcome setbacks?

Mental Attitude! Put positive words in your head, understand what the plan is to get out of the set back and execute on that plan. It won't be a setback - it'll become a learning.

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

I wish I was told from an earlier age that competing in sports is a profession - I wasn't pushed to pursue sports in my career options.

What are your goals?

To finish top 15 in the European Championships and Top 25 in the World Championships.

Who inspires you?

Everyone on the race course! All shapes, sizes and abilities inspire me every day. We each have a different path and story and if you are out there on the race course pushing your hardest then that is inspiring!

Why work with Sundried?

They seem a great brand to work with - the kit is superb and looks insane. Proud to be working with such a reputable brand.
