Introducing Trigirl Ambassador Katie
Katie is relatively new to triathlon, completing her first races last May and June. This year she plans to expand her race portfolio with 4-5 sprint-distance triathlons. Katie has inspired friends and family with her new-found athletic feats… going from a child who ‘hated any form of exercise’ to discovering triathlon in her 40s!
Katie hopes to get faster this season especially concentration on her cycling skills. She draws inspiration from her peers at the women’s Chalfont Tri Club, as well as coach (and newly-awarded 220 Triathlon Women’s Age Group Athlete of the Year), Jo Lewis.
Katie is not just busy with triathlon. She participates in running races, has two children, Hannah, aged 8, and Lewis, aged 6, and Sidney, a new four-month-old puppy. She also manages a family business renting a Cotswold holiday cottage and likes to eat out and travel (time-permitting, of course!)
We welcome Katie to the Trigirl family and look forward to hearing more about her triathlon experiences throughout the season! Read Katie’s blog here.
