I took up triathlon in 2013 having decided that playing team sports in London was too time consuming and difficult. Having always run a bit, I was fairly confident in my running abilities but swimming and cycling have taken longer to come on. I qualified to represent Great Britain at the 2014 World Championships in Edmonton, but had to pull out due to injury after being hit by a car whilst cycling in France. This required surgery on my shoulder and took a while to heal. Coming back with renewed vigor in 2015, I qualified again for both the European Championships in Geneva and the World Championships in Chicago. 2016 saw the Europeans in Lisbon along with a first Ironman. 2017 is in planning… Enjoy!

Jeremy Lloyd was right. You do spend the entire event, and most of the weeks either side, thinking about how you are going to write the damn report.
