Helen is a Triathlete and Duathlete who is enjoying success as an age group athlete representing Great Britain. Since competing in her first triathlon in 2006 Helen has been very successful in multi-sport competitions, securing a number of victories and podium places in both, local, national and international Triathlons and Duathlons.
Helen takes us back to how she first got into running and cycling and why she decided to take it up again, later on in life.

We discuss a wide variety of topics from coping with self doubt and how to break down large challenges into smaller more manageable chunks.
