Nicky Fraley of Peterborough has always been an avid
swimmer, and is a longtime cyclist, too. Now, she’s added
running to her repertoire in order to participate in triathlons.

She really enjoys the mix of activities that are required for the competition. “When one part of your body is tired, it’s nice to be able to switch to something else,” she said.

And as well as getting the physical benefits, the exercise is also healthy for her mind, she said. “The mental benefits are huge. I’m a mother with two small children, so exercise is really my quiet time, and that time I’m by myself for as long as I want to be.”
