I’m thirty…something years old, I have a gorgeous teenage daughter who excels at any sport she turns her hand to which puts me to shame and inspires me in equal measures!
I work in IT meaning I sit on my arse for most of the day. I absolutely love any kind of exercise (obviously not burpees, I’m not a complete lunatic). I took up running in 2014 and fell in love. I continued on to do a few half marathons and a also Dublin City Marathon but injuries stopped me in my tracks and I’ve been trying to get back into the swing of things for some time. A triathlon was always one of my main fitness goals, I bought the bike and started swimming lessons but I never quite put it all together so I jumped at the chance to be part of this amazing team.
My reasons for wanting to help the Gavin Glynn foundation are quite personal. Unfortunately I have lost two children of my own, and while they were lost in a different way to Gavin, the pain of saying goodbye is the same. I am so happy there is someone to give light and hope to parents facing the most terrifying and painful of fates and to be part of that hope and light in is an incredible honour.
Despite all that mushy stuff however, I am bloody terrified and I’m hoping someone has Greenpeace on standby for when I get into the sea!!!!”
