I never planned to become a triathlete but am enjoying where life is taking me! I’m a cancer doctor by trade and am currently enjoying a 2 year sabbatical from work. My 2015 goal is to qualify again for the Ironman world championships and banish the demons from a bad race there in 2014!
- 1st Ironman Lanza
- 2nd Ironman South Africa
- 2nd Alpe d’huez long course
- 2nd Ironman 70.3 Lanzarote
- 1st overall (beating all the men!) Ballbuster duathlon
I’m a big fan of the isogels on long runs I love the fact you dont need to take them with water. I also particularly like the Energy Source Extreme and always make sure I have one available to give me a kick in the last 10 miles of the run in an ironman.
How long have you been using high5 for?
Ever since I started triathlon
Your tip for an aspiring athlete…
Make sure you know why youre doing it and try to keep it fun. I started triathlon as a hobby and it still feels very much like a hobby to me. If you dont enjoy it you’ll probably never get the best out of yourself. Join a club or find friends to train with and dont let it all get too serious!
