Couch to triathlon in 15 months

Couch to triathlon in 15 months

Thank you so much for the wonderful support of this site. When they asked me to volunteer I had no reservations. I know I have been a bit preoccupied lately. my heart has never been far away. I have had the best day ever I have achieved a dream today in memory of my mum. A 400m swim a 15 km cycle and and a 5km run. A year ago I couldn't run and I could not cycle so toady I am so proud for my mum. As I say I have to thank each and everyone of you giving me the courage.

Thank you so so much.
