about you

This month’s star letter winner was inspired by the pages of H&F to train for her first triathlon TRIATHLON TRAININGThank you for your brilliant article ‘Yes, you can tri’ (June issue). I am a keen runner but I’ve been looking to increase my stamina and endurance, and do a triathlon. I didn’t know how to do one, and I didn’t know anyone who had done one. I thought they were for insane athlete types. But after reading your article, I realised I was more than capable.Triathlons are NOT just for Lance Armstrong look-a-likes and genetically-enhanced humans who’ve trained for years! So I’m following your advice and setting goals for myself. I am going to stop reading and start training. Wish me luck, and thank you H&F! Paula Maddocks, Hertfordshire…
