"I saw how much fun the SoBC triathletes were having and knew I had to take part. I could barely swim 10m in a shallow pool. I preferred to cool down with a beer on a hot summer’s day! So I took lessons three times a week. A month later and I still couldn't swim. On the final lesson it all came together. I was actually swimming freestyle!

"I built myself up to it. I'd already been in the cycling relay. The next year I did the duathlon (running and biking) and last year the swimming relay. I’m now getting ready for full triathlon distance. See you at Dorney Lake next month!”
