Home: Farnham, Surrey
Overweight, under height, and definitely unfit – what was I thinking? I’m never going to get a wetsuit to fit me! I’ve been calling myself 50 for some time but by the time the Henley Mile comes round I will be in the last year of my forties. After dedicating the last decade to work, kids, husband and home, I am now starting to panic and exercise is becoming something I can no longer afford to ignore. It’s not that I am a newbie to sport, it’s just that with a 15 and 17 year old daughter – both fab swimmers, I have become somewhat of an armchair expert in several different sports – swimming, dancing, rowing, Tae Kwon Do, not to mention cycling, which my other half enjoys. I am hoping that by making a public attempt at what will be a very real challenge for me, I am not going to be able to let myself off the hook, I’m going to have to get fit and get going!
