I'm a triathlete. Which is something I never thought I'd say about myself as I wasn't sporty as a child. It all started when I met my husband and became a cycling widow. I soon realised that if I didn't start cycling, I would never see him. One year later we did the Ride100 in London. A year after that, I did the London olympic distance triathlon. I planned to do a half-ironman the following year, but breast cancer scuppered that idea.
I didn't let cancer stop me training though. What follows is my sporting blog. I was initially reluctant to call myself an athlete, as I'm a 'back-of-the-pack' kind of gal, but I am an athlete, and I'm determined to get fitter than faster after cancer than I was before.
