What inspired you to try a triathlon?

I sort of fell into triathlons by accident! I was recovering from a back injury and needed a focus that wasn’t long distance running and just gave triathlon training a go and loved it! Also how could you not give one a go after seeing the Brownlee brothers in action!

Where and when was your first triathlon? What was the distance?

Belfast Titanic Sprint Triathlon in 2015

Do you have a favourite race?

Mourne Triathlon (Castlewellan) 👍

One piece of advice you would give a triathlon newbie

It’s not that daunting…honestly! #believeinyourself

Where’s your favourite place to ride your bike?

Probably my usual route around Comber and Ards.

Ironman – Yes/No/Again?

Not yet but it’s definitely on my bucket list so we’ll see what happens in the next few years!

What do you do in the real world, outside triathlon?

I’m that annoying Sign Language Translator that pops up on your screen on a Sunday morning and other random times in the middle of the night!

I’m definitely going to do a standard distance triathlon this year and am considering the Top of The Mourne Triathlon this July.
