I committed to running a marathon thanks to GO TRI

My journey so far has been a long and arduous one.

My weight has been like a yo-yo for years now and topped the scales in December 2016 at 24 stone. Over the last year I have dropped over 5 stone and have started running and dusted off the bike again.

I plucked up the courage to compete in my first GO TRI Event at Green park in Reading and battling through the snow, I managed a respectable time of 44mins 10secs. I have attended every GO TRI Event since and have steadily found myself improving.

My aim is to improve my time every month and I have already committed to running the Burnham Beeches Half Marathon and want to complete a Marathon before the end of the year using these two events to springboard my fitness in store for a challenge in June of 2019 of cycling to Italy from the UK in 10 days through 10 countries with work colleagues.

I have found it quite remarkable that I have gone from struggling to run a bath in December 2016 to committing to run a marathon before the end of December 2018 and GO TRI has been pivotal in helping me achieve this.

Anybody that has been sat on the fence (or saddle) thinking about joining these events I would urge you to give it a try as the teams organising these events are absolutely awesome.
