Welcome to my website!

My objective: to be the best I can be at Ironman. This is a log of my progress. I am starting to race as a professional triathlete for the 2008 season - the next few years are going to be a lot of hard work and fun! Here's to the long-game as I work my way up the professional ranks!

2005 marked my first Ironman race and I finished in a time of 9:42. IN 2006 I completed Ironman Germany in a time of 9:32 and won my age group at Weymouth Middle Distance. IN 2007 I posted a 9:16 at Ironman Austria (1st British athlete) and a 9:15 at Ironman UK. Since 2005 I have been getting fitter and faster and that journey continues as I start pursuing triathlon as a professional athlete. In 2008, I placed 6th overall at IMUK and qualified as a pro for the Ironman World Champs in Hawaii! 

My goals for the year, with the support of my awesome sponsors at Team Timex, is to improve my overall ranking in Ironman and achieve a sub nine hour Ironman time.
