I got involved in triathlon in 2009 after having my second child, as A PE teacher I have always played sport but gave up playing netball to focus on triathlon as I could fit in training around my family, and I ran and swim competitively as a teenager. I decided to do a GB age group qualifier in 2009 after a colleague raced in Australia and I thought I may be able to do that too! I have loved every minute of my triathlon career and decided to become a level 2 triathlon coach to hopefully inspire the future generation of 'Brownlees'.
