Sport has always been an integral part of life, from an early age, especially swimming where I competed for club and county as a teenager.
I rowed for my uni, then whilst carving a career out in digital advertising, I ticked over my fitness by swimming with masters and running in local charity events.
In 2008, I rode the London to Brighton bike ride, which lit a huge desire and passion for cycling.
Training and competing in endurance events is now a regular part of my life . I have completed 2 marathons, multiple triathlons, cycling sportives, and in 2017 I completed my first half and full distance Ironman. I might not be the fastest but I love training as a way of life and would love to inspire others to get the same.
I have just qualified to represent GB as an age grouper in the Aquabike at ITU Multisport World Championships in July 2018.
My aim is to inspire women to be more active, realise their potential and push their boundaries. I think it's important to shift the focus away from aesthetics and onto being strong, active and healthy. So I want to inspire women into the world of cycling, swimming and triathlon.
There are so many fitness and sport communities out there who continue to inspire and motivate me. I only want to continue this inspiration. Fitness doesn't have to be about gruelling unenjoyable work outs or expensive classes. It can bring so much more. I want to share with you how sport and fitness can be about the journey, the stories, the raw emotion, the passion. It's about self discovery, improvement, progressing, adapting and being competitive with oneself. But most of all, it's about the community, people you meet.
Always having a goal or challenge in the pipeline is what really fulfills me. Giving me a sense of purpose, pushing my limits, make me feel truly alive and give me clarity from a hectic full time job in advertising. I love training, whether it's cycling, swimming, strength training. Having a goal keeps me motivated and focused. Check out my events page for what future adventures I have in the pipeline as well as previous events.
I'll be using this blog to keep a journal about the adventures and stories, as well as sharing fitness, training and nutrition tips.
I hope you enjoy the blog. I'm always looking for collaborations, please do get in touch.
