Barry, the NHS and my first Ironman
There are certain events in your life time that will stand out forever; your first Ironman is one of those events.
My journey began after watching Ironman Wales in September 2014, I was in awe of how tough the course was, and how hard core the athletes were to even contemplate completing it, I was staying with a friend local to Tenby at the time, so as I jogged home to her house, I started thinking whether or not I could ever do something as crazy as a full Ironman.
A few weeks later and after many hours of witty banter from the Welsh contingent, of why Ironman Wales was for me, I found myself signing up for Ironman Wales 2015. I remember the “morning after the night before” vividly, had I really signed up for Ironman Wales last night? I wasn’t even drunk, what have I done!
