Who am I?
I’m a triathlete with an undiagnosed/unknown cause congenital physical disability which includes deformed hands and feet, leg length difference (although not noticeable looking at me it has a significant impact on the difference in strength of left leg compared to right leg), cleft lip and palette (fixed when still a bub), hydrocephalus (requiring a permanent shunt to be needed).
I also have mental health stuff – depression, anxiety and soon to be given official diagnosis of PTSD.
Hobbies: Triathlon but it’s become a lot more than a hobby.
My story: As a kid I grew up having learned the wrong lesson in life. I was made fun of and laughed at if I didn’t get things perfect first go. Therefore I quickly learned to give up on anything I didn’t get perfect first go. We all know learning to ride a bike isn’t something you get perfect first go. Consequently I never learned to ride a bike as a kid.
I started running in 2014 and worked my way up to my first half marathon in 2016. I sat watching Mooloolaba triathlon wishing I could do that but “knowing” I never could coz I can’t ride a bike. The next year my thinking started to change.
Thoughts were ‘I never thought I could run a half marathon but I’m doing that in 5 mths. Maybe I can learn to ride a bike’. On Sunday Oct 2, 2016, I got on a bike at a friend’s place and learned to ride it for the first time!
Four years, eight months and four days later (6/6/21), I crossed the finish line of my first full Ironman race (for those who don’t know, it’s a 3.8km swim, 180km ride, 42.2km run).
My motto: Never give up!
