Shop Sundried's Triathlon Collection

Have you always been into sport?

No - I was a team sport player in my younger years!

How did you first get into triathlon?

I first got into triathlon around 12 years ago. A chance reunion with an old team mate led to a conversation about what he was now into, and that happened to be triathlon. I signed up to my first a few weeks later and that was it! Hooked!

What has been your favourite race to date and why?

My favourite race has to be my first Half Ironman. This was such a great event and started late in the evening so raced into the night. It was my first longer distance event and a real milestone in my triathlon journey.

What is your proudest achievement?

My proudest achievement in sport is qualifying for the GB Age-Group Team. It's just brilliant that you can continue to work towards representing GB, and other nations, with the age-group set up. It's accessible to all and gives a continued focus to training and racing.

How do you overcome setbacks?

Setbacks are part of life. They are frustrating and never timed perfectly. The best way I find to overcome them is to work with the situation. Reframe your timescales, restructure your plans. As long as you can redevelop the process to have a continued (albeit renewed) focus, then you’re still working towards and through a challenge. Turn the setback into a motivation. In addition to this, don't forget to embrace any breaks - spend that time doing other things you love too.

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

This is always a tricky question, as discovering is part of the journey. But something I've discovered, which is often the first thing I share with those I work with, is to be 'purely' motivated. Do things - training, racing, analysing, planning, etc - because you want to for yourself and your own goals and motivations.  Stay in your moment. It's easy to get to a point when you let the performance of others and their motivations become a negative influence on you, and you can get caught up and a little lost in that. Take a moment. Think about you. Ask yourself why you're doing what you're doing.

What are your goals?

My goals are to continue developing and growing as a person. I used to be a teacher, and one of the things I'd tell my pupils was that they should aim to be a cog in the wheel of the world. Some will be bigger influencers than others, but every little helps.

Who inspires you?

Everyone. Whether it's an inspiration you want to imitate or one that you want to be different than.

Why work with Sundried?

Great brand, great quality, great customer care, and great ethos!
