“Hello I’m Charlotte, a 26 year old from Devon.
I’ve been quite lucky to grow up in a beautiful part of the world - full of walking and cycle trails although never took advantage of them until now!
I used to compete at a high level in Trampolining but due to a serious injury 5 years ago I can no longer do so.
I used to train so much for that and when I couldn’t do it anymore I had to think of what I could do instead. I was upset for a long time.
I told myself that I still need to exercise for the health benefits but just find something else that I like.
I’ve always liked Netball so I am lucky that I could still do this. I play in our local league and even play regionally at the moment.
I then started cycling and running as I moved into a town and most things are only a couple of miles away max.
I thought to myself I’d rather cycle than walk as it would be quicker and less effort!
I’ve created a goal to complete a triathlon for the first time so I am looking forward to this.
I love the Medal Displays as it reminds me every day what I have achieved over the years and even though injuries happen, I can still exercise which makes me feel good about myself.”
