Meet Zoe - asthmatic age-grouper!
I've done a fair few triathlons in my time. My biggest three races have been my full iron-distance events. They've not gone without incident though! Asthma attacks, cracked ribs and even falling down a manhole in training a couple of weeks before a race!
I'm still learning to deal with my asthma in training and events (yes I do have a TUE for my meds) whilst building up to Ironman Wales. That's my A-race for the year. My build up includes the Lakesman Half in June and the Long Course Weekend in July. I'll keep you posted with updates of my training progress.
A Bit About Me
Apart from triathlon I enjoy snowboarding, shooting in the winter, and surfing and paddle boarding in summer times. I have three spaniels and one husband which are always up for a long walk in the countryside. My problem is I love all kinds of food and find it hard to resist, that's why I need three sports to keep my weight in check. But a good cup of coffee, banana milkshake or Jaffa cakes will never be turned down.
I race long course and Ironman races under the Jamaican flag – I was born there. I once shared a world record with Paula Radcliff – my first half marathon time was the same as her marathon world record time.
