My 2016 Race Results

Tuesday, 29 November 2016 by

2016 was an up and down sort of season with thankfully more ups than downs! I began with great pre-season and good solid training in January & February which really built the foundation for the year. A family holiday in March slowed things somewhat and then a calf injury hung over me for a few

This is my 3rd time competing in and sponsoring the iconic Lost Sheep Triathlon with the added onus that this year it was the National Middle Distance Championships.  In 2010 the swim was horrific, lots of people had to be pulled out of the water and it took me 1hr 7mins (for reference my full

Dublin City Triathlon

Tuesday, 30 August 2016 by

Ive raced and sponsored Dublin City Triathlon for the past 6 years and its one of the highlights of the Irish Triathlon calendar, having won ‘Race of the Year’ on numerous occasions.

  A lady runs laps of our estate dressed in a fur coat.  She comes around every few days and seems to do laps of the various other estates in the area. She hasn’t got much faster over the past few years, just plods along in whatever her quest is [insert here fitness / lose

My First Triathlon

Monday, 15 February 2016 by

You might be doing your first triathlon this year, or you might have friends or family doing the same… for what its worth I thought I would share my experiences.  Everyone’s experience is different but there are some general consistencies that you can learn from and can make your experience more enjoyable.  I have written

Tour De France – One Day Ahead

Tuesday, 17 November 2015 by

One Day Ahead-the ride of a lifetime (By Helen Russell) As a triathlete I expected my summer to be the usual mix of swim, bike and run training and some domestic and international races. However after meeting the former Crystal Palace and England footballer, Geoff Thomas my summer turned into something quite unexpected. In 2003
