Why are you racing with Team PH?

Competing in triathlons has always been terrifying for me. I get nervous before every race. However, a greater awareness of PH has shown me how blessed I am and how easy it is to take our health for granted. The lack of treatment options for PH is the only thing we need to be scared of. It is a privilege to be able to compete and I truly hope that getting involved with TPH can help spread awareness and a realisation of how lucky we are to be able to compete in a sport that we love.
