Give triathlon a try

Comment News (Armadale) - - Street Watch -

AN AR­MADALE nurse is en­cour­ag­ing oth­ers to get fit this sum­mer by giv­ing triathlon a try.

Mon­ica Bor­rill is a mem­ber of the Perth Hills Triathlon Club, and said the com­mu­nity spirit of the club was fan­tas­tic.

“I dis­cov­ered the club by ac­ci­dent when I was swim­ming at an Ar­madale pool, and they in­vited me to join them,” she said.

“They all looked so pro­fes­sional and haven’t looked back since.

“I love train­ing with the club, and they sup­ported me to my first half Iron­man last year.

“It was re­ally scary but so ex­cit­ing,” she said.

Ms Bor­rill fits train­ing around her life as a sur­gi­cal nurse, and has com­pleted sev­eral short dis­tance races and the Iron­man 70.3 in Bus­sel­ton.

The Perth Hills Triathlon Club is wel­com­ing new mem­bers with its in­au­gu­ral novice triathlon pro­gram, which will teach peo­ple fresh to the sport about how to train and com­pete.

The pro­gram will be led by vet­eran triath­lete and coach Rob ‘Slim’ Wiles.
