Paddle Pedal Pace is an award-winning fitness blog with content related to living an active, healthy lifestyle. You'll find articles about endurance sports including triathlon, the outdoors and active travel.

I’m Lucy, I’m 37 and I live in Essex, United Kingdom with my husband Glen. I’m happiest when I’m outdoors swimming, cycling or running.

I started my fitness journey as a gym bunny, but it developed into a passion for endurance sport. After taking the plunge into triathlon in 2014, I’ve never looked back. Triathlon allows me to challenge myself, push my limits and get outside of my comfort zone. I’ve now completed 25 triathlons from sprint up to half-iron distance, plus many more multi-sport events.
