  • Greeper Laces

    5th Nov 2019 by

    I first came across Greeper laces at the London Tri show in March 2019. My father and I saw a photo on a stand of a top local age group athlete and coach, it was Tom Ward from Passionfit and we decided to look at what product his banner was advertising. As a result we… Read more

    17th Oct 2019 by

    What have I been doing since Ironman Wales? The days following Ironman Wales my main focus was just to walk properly again and eat as much food as I could. Basically, it didn’t take me long to eat the calories I burnt during the Ironman! As well as this I was straight back into studying… Read more

    28th Sep 2019 by

    After an early start travelling to the Cotswold Classic middle-distance triathlon (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1mile run) we got the bikes out the car and sorted out what we will take into transition at the back of the car.

  • IRONMAN WALES 2019

    5am: the alarm goes off. I got up and put the kettle on ready for my morning porridge and knocked on the room next door for my dad. We then walked to transition together in the dark to do our final checks. The air was fresh and wet, and the nerves were kicking in!  I… Read more

  • The Start

    28th Aug 2019 by

    May 2019 was the beginning of my journey to become an accomplished triathlete.  I’ve always been inspired by the professional triathletes that I keep up with on social media. I would look at them competing in their iconic blue GBR kit with their names printed on it, and think that maybe that would be me… Read more
