I took up running at the beginning of 2015 as an antidote to cheese and wine. Although I stuck with it, I didn’t like it much, so decided to take up triathlon as the cycling and swimming sounded like more fun. I prefer ‘wilder’ events, such as the Ben Nevis Triathlon. However, having joined the tri club because I didn’t like running, my real interest is of course ultra running. The cross training offered by my membership is ideal for this pursuit.
