    Story

    Cheeky I know - but I am trying to raise money to fund my trip to Rotterdam to compete in the 2017 World Championships! I have always enjoyed running, however loosing my Mum when she was 40 (and I was 12) I decided to do something memorable to 'celebrate' my 40th ... so ... I learnt to swim, I trained hard and last year, on my actual 40th birthday I completed a very emotional Windsor Standard distance triathlon...since then it has been a whirlwind! For the last year my training has been hard, focused and I have raced regularly. Last week I received an email saying that I had been selected to race in my Age Group for GB in the World Championships, sprint distance triathlon, in Rotterdam, in 5 weeks time! I am so excited! Unfortunately the whole trip is very expensive and requires more kit than I first thought, so I would love some help please..

    My business (TeamMama) is training post natal Mums back to strength and fitness - they are a daily inspiration to me in their achievements; I am also a Mum of three amazing kids, and have a wonderfully supportive husband, family and friends who I seriously would not be able to do this all without. I would love this opportunity to make everyone I know proud and show them that AGE IS ONLY A NUMBER and give my kids the inspiration to get out there and achieve their goals, no matter how crazy they seem.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this and I am very grateful for any contributions you are able to give to help fund this adventure!
