Ever since a young age I have always been involved in sport. As a kid I played a lot of football, cricket and golf, and also started running from the age of around 16. Unfortunately when I was 20 I ruptured my anterior cruciate ligament in my left knee so sport was put on the back-burner for a while. At the age of 25 I took up running again, and have since completed many 5k, 10k, half-marathons and several marathons.
While on my journey to the 2015 London Marathon, I joined my local triathlon club to join in with their running sessions, but soon found myself also taking part in the swim and cycling sessions. In the Autumn of 2015 I completed my first super-sprint triathlon, which would lead me on a journey to take on my biggest challenge to date - Ironman Lanzarote.
Recently I have had to again change my goals, as my long standing knee injury has finally caught up with me, and I now find it very difficult to run without pain, so my focus has switched to taking on some epic cycling challenges. As a member of the Okhane Coaching Team
, I hope my journey will help keep me fit, and also inspire others to take up their own health and fitness journeys.
