Holly's Tri mis-adventures
I'm a previously unsporty 20 something that has been trying very hard at tri for the last 6 years with minimal success! I love the sport to the extent that I helped my husband set up 'The Triathlon Shop' three years ago and have recently started working there full-time having given up a career in accountancy.

I'm lucky to be in the industry I love and often get to try out kit before it is released. When I do get to play with fun triathlon toys I tend to write a little review about my experiences. I also like to blog about my pathetic attempts to train and the fun I have in the summer racing and supporting all my friends at races.

New year, new challenges

twiggyby twiggyDec 31st 2014
There's no doubt its been a crazy year. How I've managed to fit in any competing at all is a miracle! A list of the years highlights include:

- New year at our Mallorca training camp
- Quitting my well paid job in accountancy to work at The Triathlon Shop full time
- Burnham Super Sprint
- Opening our new shop in Harbourside (the hardest thing I have ever had to do!)
- Passed my exams in sports and remedial massage therapy (also a massive challenge)
- Adidas TR24 trail run
- The swim leg of the London Triathlon
- The first ever North Bristol Triathlon Club triathlon
- Starting up TTSCamp - our Mallorca training camp is now open to all!

Next year is going to be just as crazy. In January and February we are hosting 2 weeks of training in a luxury villa in Mallorca. As the dust has settled on the new store we will also be spending more time supporting events all over the south west so I will be there cheering people on and taking photos.
I won't be competing or even training myself however, this being down to two main reasons:
1. I am pregnant! Due in June
2. Because of my pregnancy I have had to put surgery on hold to have the screws in my leg removed, and until this is done I cant really run or ride up hills.

So next year is all about bringing another little triathlete into the world, and supporting all my good triathlete friends. Its going to be no less challenging than 2014, but certainly different and I am looking forward to the all new terrifying challenge of motherhood.
