In 2015 the world of triathlon was left reeling in shock as I announced my retirement from Ironman on the finish line of IM Barcelona. So when I rang 220 Triathlon to let them know that I was making a comeback at Ironman Copenhagen I was surprised when they didn’t seem that bothered.
So here’s the thing, a year ago I never had any inclination, whatsoever, to become an Outlaw in 2017, completing an ironman distance triathlon in 14hrs 5mins and 40secs. I had thought I might do another marathon to celebrate my 60th year, but not this!
Firstly, I should say that without the help of Mark & Teresa, I would not have been any where near as successful as I was, so a big thank you to them. Nor would I have been so fortunate as to have the support and time needed for training if it wasn’t for Nigel and Poppy, massive thanks to them also.
