I’ve found that a bit of constructive training, time and perseverance can surprise you beyond measure – before my first triathlon I decided to order the souvenir T-shirt because I thought I might never do another triathlon again after that first one. I had no idea how much of a buzz I’d get from training and racing and where this path of exploration would take me!
I’ve been a casual runner and yogi since I was at uni but started sport in earnest when I began taking part in cycle sportives in 2009. Next I signed up to my first sprint-distance triathlon and before long I found myself regularly taking part in various multisport events, from sprint-distance aquathlons to half-iron distance triathlons and a foray into cross-triathlon where I represented my GB age-group team at the European Championships.
In the meantime I was making my way in the world of online marketing at an agency in central London and learning how to present to top marketing directors at major brands, write irresistible subject lines and do kick-ass data analysis in Excel, which came in handy for number-crunching race results data and analysing my workout metrics at weekends.
At the end of 2014 I decided to pursue my passion in fitness and retrained as a personal trainer and triathlon coach. Alongside working as a freelance personal trainer, I deliver fitness classes for Our Parks in East London, coach at London Fields Triathlon Club and also coach indoor cycling sessions at the Lee Valley Velopark’s Velostudio.
