I have competed in both of the previous TriAbility triathlons. The last two times I completed the individual race where I did the swimming, biking and walking. This year I thought it would be fun to compete as part of a team, so I asked my flatmate, Allyson. She was keen to do the walking and I was happy to do the swimming. We just needed to find someone for the biking leg, so I spoke to Dorothy, from the resource centre. She said that she would find someone to be a part of our team and do the biking. My support worker, Wendy, bumped into Stacey who said that she had spoken with Dorothy and would be happy to join our team and compete in the biking – yay, our team was established!
We have all been training hard and we are all ready to go on Saturday 18 March. My mum is going to take us all over and support us and my support worker, Wendy, will do the biking and walking alongside Stacey and Allyson.
