Creating Momentum is our new initiative inspired by Kelda’s solo row across the Atlantic. The chain of inspiration created by Kelda’s row was amazingly powerful and we want to build on that. Creating Momentum is a platform for people to share their inspiring stories to inspire and motivate others!
Kelda's next challenge is to complete a series of triathlons this year, despite not being able to run! Kelda plans to document her journey overcoming more barriers like this through Creating Momentum to help inspire others. She wants people to use Creating Momentum as a place to share stories and information that will help motivate others to take on and overcome life’s physical and mental challenges. It’s all about facing life’s hurdles, finding solutions and achieving something you didn’t think possible.
"I have always wanted to compete in triathlons, but I thought I couldn’t because of my leg injury. I can't run, I can't swim very well, and I can’t use a standard bike. But then I realised I wasn't practising what I preach – I wasn't finding a solution to my challenge and asking, 'how can I?'
"I wanted to find a way to adapt so I could compete in standard triathlons. I’m learning how to swim in a new way, Spokz are providing a racing wheelchair that I will use for the running part of the race and Bicycles by Design have created a bespoke bike for me from Duratec. I am so grateful to both Spokz and Bicycles by Design for their incredible support and making this all possible, plus ongoing support from UK Triathlon and Always Aim High events."
