I did my first tri in 1989 so I have seen lots of changes in the sport over the years. I’ve raced all the distances and found the shorter stuff suits me best, it is certainly easier to fit in the training around work and family. I’m also a level 2 coach, mostly working with the Juniors at Leeds & Bradford Tri Club, where both my kids train.
