Kathryn, my daughter, has had an aptitude for sport all her life. She learned to ride a two wheeler at a very young age. In her early years she was winning local fun runs and starred at school sports days. She had swimming lessons throughout her childhood and had great front crawl technique by the age of 7 – though it must be said she never really loved swimming.
Kathryn grew up being taken around various races to support Mummy so I suppose it was a natural progression that when eventually she grew out of the ‘cool’ teenage years she returned to sport and particularly running. A bike came along as a means of transport – a hybrid known as Donkey.
