First triathlon: Blenheim supersprint 2005. Full on washing machine experience in the swim very nearly made it my last!
Best race: Henley middle distance 2012 (4:50:44). For once I listened to my coach and paced it perfectly.
Hardest race: Bec Hill Climb 2013. Thrashed by my 13 year old son. A painful reminder that I am not built for going uphill quickly and I can't sprint.
Proudest achievements in triathlon: setting up the Tritons' junior section and watching Tom take bronze at the 2013 IRCs.
