Didie Aziz: Juggling Motherhood, Career, and Triathlon

Didie Aziz: Juggling Motherhood, Career, and Triathlon

Meet Didie Aziz, an inspiring female athlete from Malaysia who has found a way to master the balancing act of motherhood and career while pursuing her interest in triathlon. When Didie is not tending to her three children, ranging from 21 to 13 years old, she's excelling in her roles as a Human Resource Business Partner and Head of a subsidiary company, and in her “spare time” she’s growing from strength to strength in the world of triathlon. 

Overcoming Challenges and Embracing Milestones

Didie's journey into triathlon kicked off back in 2022 when she took the plunge and registered for an Ironman 70.3 Langkawi event. Despite initially participating in relays, she became  dedicated to her swim, bike, and run training and overcame  hurdles like knee injuries to conquer this race. This race was also a turning point which motivated her to dive headfirst into her running in early 2023. Cycling, on the other hand, has been a long term  passion cultivated since 2015.

With a number of  races under her belt since 2017, Didie has left her mark, particularly in the cycling scene. She's consistently ranked in the top ten for ride races and clinched notable victories, including championing the 113 duathlon in Melaka, conquering road races in IJN Terengganu, and leading her women's relay team to victory in Ironman competitions.

But Didie admits her journey hasn't been all smooth roads and finish lines. Balancing her rigorous training schedule with the demands of a full-time career posed its fair share of challenges. With limited time on her hands, Didie had to master the art of juggling work and training, often improvising her plans to make it all work.

Gearing Up for Success with Purpose 

Didie said it's the combination of the comfort and performance that Purpose gear offers that she loves most. For Didie, the right attire plays an important role in enhancing her performance and she aims to inspire newcomers to the endurance sports arena. 

Beyond her athletic pursuits, Didie finds solace in her love for travel, seamlessly blending her passion for exploration with her dedication to sports.

"Sports isn't just a hobby; it's my life's essence, traveling with me wherever I go and sparking my passion along the way," said Didie. 

With boundless determination and an indomitable spirit, Didie proves that with the right mindset, anything is possible. So here's to Didie and her commitment to living life to the fullest—both on and off the racecourse.
