I’m proud to be an ambassador for Women for Tri, a scheme set up by Ironman which champions the participation of women in the sport of triathlon.
As part of being an ambassador, we are encouraged to share the reasons #whywetri. I have a long list of reasons why I am involved in this fantastic sport…
