Bikes: Race Bike - Liv Envie Advanced Pro 1
When not racing: Whatever I do I want to do with a smile on my face and enjoying life. I have a creative streak and I love 'Making and Doing'. It’s perfect to keep me off my feet and my head away from triathlon. I find it really therapeutic and relaxing. I make curtains, carts, cushions, decorations. But maybe most of all I love to live out of kitchen cooking creating and baking. Some naughty things and some good but all NICE! I'm a big foodie. So when we meet up with friends it normal involves and causal ride, cake and then maybe even dinner! I'm a big feeder and no one would leave my house hungry. I EAT LOTS so you have to keep up if you come round ours.
In the whole scheme of things am still a newbie to this whole triathlon thing. This is my 3rd season in the sport and it grows on me day on day and I love it even more. There is always something new to learn and more you can do to grow and develop.
Coming from a sporty household and participating in every sport I could, with a training session or two after every day at school. I competed nationally in Hockey, Running, Gymnastics, and Biathlon. Considering this background, it’s not hard to see why I got into multi-sport racing.
2015 was my most consistent and memorable to date. It saw me finishing 3rd in the British super series, come 3rd at the British standard distance championships, where I was privileged to share the podium with 2X world champion Helen Jenkins.

2016 started with a bang, quite literally, as we were in Portugal on a training camp to see in the New Year. Huge fireworks were set off on the beach that lit up the sky for miles around, that were so loud neighbouring countries woke! Well, that was what I was told because I managed to sleep through the whole thing. One of my alien talents… is sleeping anywhere, through anything...
The best way to start is to look back and to see what I have done to get me to the start line. I won’t bore you with how many lengths of the swimming pool, how many miles on the bike or how many miles I have pounded on the pavement. But instead illustrate the wild winter in through some pretty crazy images. If I showed you every selfie or photo we may be here all day so here is just a select few…
