Monique Hollinshead
 
Been running since 1996, started with Morley Running club now sadly defunct.
Haven't managed to sabotage Dewsbury yet so here I am.
Got into triathlons in 2002 after a spell feeling overtained and fed up with running (two marathons in 8 weeks a bad idea). So my advice is if you're sick and tired of one sport, take up another two.
 
In 2004 I did my first Ironman. I had so much fun I did two in 4 weeks in 2005- I never learn. Ended up being three in 12 weeks as I got a qualification for the World Championships on my second one and so went to Hawaii.
This year I have only done one in Germany, but next year plan on a triple....
 
2008

Had a year off and then was raring to go this year, for the new Double Ironman in the UK, which I did, and won, in 28 and a half hours. So more advice, if you can't win at one distance keep increasing it.
I also took up pose running, a work in progress, but atleast the achilles doesn't trouble me anymore
 
2010

Update-
Did the 2009 Double, I must be getting used to them knocked about 45 minutes off my time.
The deca I was supposed to be doing this year got downsized to a 5x then cancelled due to low entry numbers. I know- wierd
Sooo I am doing a Triple this year in August then another double in Lanzarote next Feb, and at last the re-arranged deca (10 Ironmans in 10 days) next Summer in Hampshire
You could say it's starting to get out of hand....
 
Goodbye and Thankyou

I have moved over to Cheshire and so will be joining a new club- South Cheshire Harriers.
I would like to say thanks to all the club members for the laughs we have had over the years- particularly those 30 mile x country cool down runs back from Skipton, coal racing and the ill-advised Road relay excursion.
I would also like to thank Paul Shields for being a big factor in getting me into all this nonsensical endurance stuff in the first place(although I did think I was going to die in that desert) and Derek Berry for all those training sessions spent eating Bargain Buckets in KFC and sending off grease soaked triathlon entry forms.
Good luck all.....
