After being inspired by the attitude of my younger sister who is currently running the 5000 miles around the entire UK coastline I wanted to take on my own epic journey this year. Due to my family commitments it couldn't be a multi day task so one challenge stood out. Something I've always wanted to achieve but never thought I would get round to doing. A task consisting of 3 huge elements, 2 of which I'm completely inexperienced in. I felt if ever there was a time I could do this it was now. I went with Elise's motto of 'Doing a thing is a lot less scary than thinking about doing a thing' and went for it by signing up for Ironman UK.
