So here’s how it is. We’re triath­letes. Mul­tisporters. We don’t do ‘three sports’, we do one won­der­ful sport with some added chal­lenges thrown in. Tran­si­tions, try­ing to drink while ducked down on aer­o­bars and get­ting into a wet­suit with­out too many em­bar­rass­ing pub­lic lunges are just a few that come to mind... We’re also hu­man though, so chances are, se­cretly, you have a favourite dis­ci­pline. For me, it’s run­ning. You can do it any­where, any time and when you travel a lot, it’s a great way to meet peo­ple as there’s al­ways some­one up for a quick 10k. That said though, I crave open-wa­ter swims most days... and you can’t beat a long Sun­day ride... So maybe it’s a good job we don’t have to pick just one!

Tak­ing time out for a run dur­ing a re­cent pho­to­shoot. We were in pine forests close to the BEST Swim Cen­tre in Mal­lorca and set­ting the pace was triath­lete Lau­ren Free­man.
