  • Did the Ironman in 2019

    This was my first full distance Ironman and an incredible experience. The weather was awful so the swim was cancelled and the bike and run were really tough but the crowd support was incredible! So many people were out on the bike and run course despite the weather, cheering on til the end. The atmosphere in the town in the lead up and during the event couldn’t have been better!
