We are delighted to welcome BBC Breakfast presenter Louise Minchin on to the podcast this week. Louise got into triathlon as a complete beginner in her mid 40s. She tells us how it all began, after she was made to race around the Velodrome for work. She also talks about the fears and challenges she has overcome on her way to representing the GB age group team. And we find out which is more nerve wracking - lining up for the start of a triathlon or doing a live interview watched by millions of people. Have a listen and then check out her book which is out on May 3rd!
