Most triathletes are good at spinning plates. They're high achievers and it's normal practice for them to have a lot going on. Today's guest is no exception. When Bianca Fernandez was growing up, she excelled at her school work but had no interest in PE or sporting activities. At the age of 29 she decided to follow the Couch to 5k programme. She wasn’t fast but she finished and was so proud of her achievement that it motivated her on to greater challenges - marathon, 70.3 distance triathlon, and eventually Ironman. By a stroke of luck, she won a Kona spot through their Golden Ticket competition celebrating IM Kona's 40th anniversary. She became the first ever athlete from the Dominican Republic to compete in IM Kona. Along the way she's encountered challenges in her life such as working as a female in a male dominated industry, and living in a country where access to sports activities was limited. These experiences have driven not just her participation in triathlon, but the desire to encourage more females into the sport through her charity FundHerTri UK, and at work were she volunteers as part of a group to improve diversity in the workplace. To find out more about Bianca you can find her on IG at Biancatriathlon. You can find her charity, FundHerTriUK, on their Website, and on IG at fundhertriUK. These two links also have excellent resources around getting more women to start lines: She.races and Bethan Taylor Swaine, founder of WellBeing. Bianca was inspired by the book Becoming by Michelle Obama. To contact Beth regarding Life Coaching, please email her at Info@BethanyWardLifeCoaching.uk.
