Anne Glass, 49, from Glasgow has signed up to STARMAN 2020, and here we find out a bit more about why she chose STARMAN!
Anne, welcome to STARMAN 2020! We are excited to have you join us! is this your first triathlon?
I have done two sprint distance triathlons – I normally do OCR and trail 10kms or half marathons.
What inspired you to take part this year?
I like to challenge myself! I am really looking forward to soaking up the atmosphere of the event and spending time outdoors at night!
Have you raced at night before?
Yes, I have done a 10k night trail and regularly cycle and run at night
Have you started training? What training are you planning on doing?
I already cycle weekly upwards of 40 miles in groups, I will be adding in extra hill/speed training on the bike. I regularly swim (outdoors) and run but have started specific swim and run coaching with Fusion Triathlon Club. I teach and practice yoga and go to the gym for strength training too.
What are you most concerned about?
The swim section will be my most difficult as I’m not the best at front crawl – a few months to work on that though.
What’s your favourite fuel?
Jelly babies and a wee jam sandwich!
And finally, how are you feeling about STARMAN 2020 in three words?
Excited but nervous!
Thanks so much Anne – we look forward to seeing you at the start line in August!
