My name is Heather McLaughlin and I'm one of the many Australian Occupational Therapists currently working at Headley Court. I have worked at this amazing rehabilitation centre for over two years. I have always loved sport but only started cycling properly when I first moved to London 3 years ago.
I was inspired to join Team True Spirit after seeing the incredible achievements of the crew last year. This year I aim to raise lots of money for injured servicemen and help support our team by completing the cycling leg of the Ironman and the cycling and running parts of the half ironman. It will be the first event cycling and running event I have competed in, so I am both excited and daunted by the challenge.
I am looking forward not just to the competition days but also the training days over the next 5 months.
It will be great to build on friendships with the other TTS team members and push myself to be the fittest that I can be.
