Pat Swiftpatswift – Social Secretary

Pat retired 5 years ago and thought it would be fun to have a go at a Sprint Triathlon; as a keen cyclist she thought that would be enough to get her through the course. However, she enjoyed it so much she decided to have a go at a Duathlon, then the dream, a Sprint Open Water event!

Believing  the marketing hype that a wet suit would do all the hard work, she set off training only to find that it wasn’t quite that easy and and required a few skills. Fortunately she then met Ashbourne Triathletes. Amanda, and team identified her shortcomings and guided her around the lake at Hall Croft Farm, giving her confidence over the few weeks before the race. Pat completed Blithfield Triathlon finishing first in her age category.

Pat now wants to give back to Ashbourne Triathletes, as without them she would never of achieved her dream.
