Hi, we are Caroline and Claire, from Co. Antrim, Northern Ireland. We started running together in May 2012 with a goal to run the Dublin Marathon in October that year. We did that and haven't stopped training since!
First marathon - Dublin, October 2012, think we were in shock!
We ran a few marathons and then decided to give triathlon a go. We joined the local triathlon Club (Hi-Elbow) in January 2014 and did our first sprint triathlon (750m swim, 20km bike, 5km run) in May that year. We have slowly been building up our triathlon distances since then and completed Ironman 70.3 Zell-am-See in August 2015.
Ironman 70.3 Zell-am-see - we did it!
There have been some challenges on our journey, but mostly a lot of laughs and we have met so many fantastic people in both the running and triathlon communities.
Claire has entered Ironman Kalmar Sweden on 20th August 2016!! You can follow her 30 week training plan in the blog section.
One of the challenges we had was finding good quality kit that also looked good and was different from the standard black. As a result of endless hours searching online, we came across Coeur Sports gear, loved it, got in touch with the great team @ Coeur and decided to set up an online store and bring Coeur to the UK and Ireland!
