Emma-Kate Lidbury is the managing editor at Triathlete Magazine. She’s a former pro triathlete with six Ironman 70.3 titles and two top-10 world championship finishes to her name. Originally from the UK, EK began her journalism career in the British newspaper industry where she was also talked into taking part in her first tri as part of an assignment. It worked out well—and she turned pro three years later. EK has been a freelance writer in the endurance sports space for 10+ years and is the co-author of Triathlon Swimming with swim coach Gerry Rodrigues. She still loves to swim, bike, run, and lift.
