Today's guest is Margaret Sills. I met Margaret about 20 years ago when she asked me to coach her. During the time we worked together she represented GB triathlon as an age grouper and also qualified for Kona twice. I can still remember waiting at the finish line for her to complete her first Kona (which she mentions in the conversation). She had some struggles on the day but she made it and as she crossed the line I had a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes. The reason I invited Margaret on to the show this week is to talk about her 40 years as a triathlete. In 2023 she finished her final event, almost exactly 40 years to the day from her first event in 1983. This, by the way, makes her a pioneer of triathlon in the UK, as the event she completed in Northampton all those years ago was one of the very first UK triathlons. I enjoyed the reminiscing, and I hope you do too!
