Debbie Greig is a blogger, contracts lawyer, and professional triathlete. As of August 2018, she is the current sprint, standard, and long distance Scottish women’s triathlon national champion. Sponsored by Speedhub and Aqua Sphere, she recently raced for Team Stirling in the UK Mixed Cup Relay triathlon in London. She’s been invited to international triathlons and ironman races, placing in most and winning quite a few, while retaining championship titles year after year across the British Isles. Not bad for a woman who was on a training ride four years ago, got hit by a car, and ended up with a blood clot in her leg that moved to her lung and caused permanent damage.
Debbie has been writing and sharing her training, her racing triumphs, and her losses openly for years, originally on her own site, Debbie Moore Tris, and now on Kyle Runs & Deb Tris, a blog that she shares with her husband, Team Great Britain runner Kyle Greig.

- Why it’s important to share your real life to keep your writing interesting
- Writing after a major event can help you decompress and learn lessons about yourself
- If you’re going to talk the talk, you have to walk the walk
- Being honest is the best thing to do in writing, even when everyone else is photoshopping their images or writing only about their “best accomplishments”
