The first triathlon event I participated in was Ironman Maastricht 2017 and completed it as a relay with my mum and sister. I did the swim part of it and loved it, the three of us crossing that finish line together was amazing! After cheering everyone on, I thought perhaps I could do this too. So I thought let’s go for the whole thing but sign up for a shorter distance to start with and that was Ironman 70.3 Dun Laoghaire. My mental health wasn’t great back then and every time I trained all I thought was, you are stronger than you think, prove yourself wrong and train so you can finish the race! Damn that feeling of crossing the finish line was such a rush! Since then I’ve been looking for new races and loving the social aspects of training together as a club.
