First dabbled with Triathlon in around 2003 whilst living in London, in an oversized windsurfing wetsuit, MTB with road tyres and likely trainers with too many miles in them. But it took until 2008 and a chance meeting with a 17 time Ironman who'd just got back from Race Across America, that I got properly introduced to the sport. Entered my first full Ironman (Switzerland 2009) without actually knowing entirely what it entailed, and have completed 5 more. Qualified to race my first European Championships in 2011 and have qualified for GB 10 times since. Have raced on Team MaccaX, founded by Chris McCormack, since 2013, so have been fortunate enough to meet and learn from a host of professional athletes & coaches. A few race highlights being Challenge Roth in 2014, despite melting in the heat, Ironman 70.3 World Champs in Zell am See 2015, the first outside of the U.S, and the inaugural Super League Jersey for an out and out weekend of a lifetime, both racing and socialising with the professionals. Still plotting out the race schedule for 2019 whilst enjoying sharing and helping others with their journey & progression within Triathlon.
