Over the years Laura has been inspired by her friends who have taken part in triathlon but it wasn’t until she moved to Stirling in 2012 that she was finally persuaded to get involved and actually participate.
As a teenager she competed in regional and national athletics and cross country. She came to cycling as an adult, initially as a commuter in London (talk about being thrown in at the deep end!!) to avoid taking the tube and now enjoys both road and MTBing with cycle touring holidays thrown in. She has recently discovered hom much she enjoys open water swimming, but is still very much a novice in that area. However, there’s no better place to get out and work on that than in Stirlingshire!
She is someone who loves to talk to people and also to understand how things work, so coaching seemed like a logical step. She gained her UKCC level 1 in August 2016 and completed her level 2 qualification in April 2018.
