I always had a general interest in keeping fit but nothing too serious. In 2014 I decided to start pushing myself more, I wanted to expand beyond the 5km and 10km runs, and when I completed my first adventure race I was hooked on these events. I train with Go-Tri in Clare and the support to push and train beyond your comfort zone and to train with similar minded athletes is terrific.
I was hesitant on taking on this adventure but looking how I have developed from 10k runs to challenges I have now completed which I previously taught impossible and with the encouragement of my club mates and the want to challenge myself to a new level has brought me to here my biggest challenge to date. I’m looking forward to the challenge.
