After reading that title, I feel this should be written in baby blue or pastel pink. I am happy to finally launch Ironchicks as a forum for female runners, swimmers, cyclists, triathletes and athletes. The idea nested in my head some six years ago and my inner Ironchick is now OUT.
Training and racing is such an amazing, key element of my day to day life! I love to hear people’s stories and experiences and I love to see how a run or a swim can change someone’s day or even their outlook on life.
So why blog? Every day I see or hear someone share beautiful insights into their day and how someone or something has helped them achieve their goal (whether that be big or small). The insight might be as simple as where they got their new togs or as complex as to how they’ve managed to do a 5km run, make lunches, do school drop off, pop into work and still make swimming training by 9:30am.
There are so many positive and encouraging people out there achieving wonderful things – this forum can help all Ironchicks feel they belong as we share each other’s victories, goals and failures. Share, discuss, celebrate, enjoy and embrace all that is in an Ironchicks life!
I don’t know everything and I will never imply that I do. This site is a sharing forum. I’m keen to hear your ideas, insights, needs and wants in relation to the sport.
Sign up, belong, become an IRONCHICK. With the membership you have the opportunity to
