Fat Girl to Ironman
Tamsyn Smith –
Two years ago, I decided that I’d had enough of being unfit and overweight, so I decided that I would challenge myself to do an Ironman triathlon before my 40th birthday. Although I did some running, I had not ridden a bike for many years and couldn’t swim.
In the last two years, I have started cycling to work every day and have also bought my first road bike. I’ve cycled 100km on a number of occasions and am building up to my first 100-mile ride. I’ve also been cycling in the Pyrenees and spent April 2015 cycling across the Japanese Alps.
I love the freedom I feel when riding my bike :-).
