IRONMAN Wales 2019 – Stephen McCann

IRONMAN Wales September 15th 2019 Having arrived in Wales on the Wednesday before the event I had plenty of time to get in a few swims, a short run and a look at some of the bike course. Ironman had everything well organised from the registration through to the briefing so by the time race […]

IRONMAN ITALY 2019 – Kevin Derrig

I’ve thought to myself for a while that too many feckin eejits in Pulse do mad races like Ironman, and I decided that 2019 would be the year that I became one of them. First, why Italy?  There are a lot of options out there but I knew that with my wife studying part time […]

IRONMAN Cascias 70.3 – Grant Jacobs

So, here goes my first race report for Pulse. And I’ve got no one to blame but myself! Here be told a lesson of how ignorance can truly be bliss as I had mentally signed up to do Cascais 70.3 before I’d even completed any sort of triathlon. I hadn’t even done a sprint race […]

Lough Ramor Triathlon – Dáire McNulty

I decided to write up a report for a local race I completed this year, not national series but Triathlon Ireland were there. Local for me as this race is held by Virginia Triathlon & Cycling Club in Cavan. It was also the location for my first overall win in triathlon. The race itself is […]

IRONMAN Copenhagen 2019 – Jo Lynch

Ironman Copenhagen – the one with the ferret! I wasn’t supposed to do Copenhagen. I had actually signed up for Cork when it was first announced. However after getting drenched at Barcelona last year I questioned whether I really wanted to risk an Ironman in Ireland! I pulled the plug on Ireland a few months […]

Joanna Butler…..her journey to Kona

I love reading Pulser’s stories, race reports and all, it’s like a door to a different world but I never intended to be writing one myself. Yet here I am typing……for me it’s a story about how we evolve, influenced by people we meet and unexpected things that catch imagination. Sometimes it can take you […]

Ironman Cork – Mark Willoughby

A Long Ironman Brick in Cork After doing IM 70.3 Dun Laoghaire in 2018 I had the bug for the Ironman events. I felt after that race that I could go further. So, I started hatching a plan to do a Full Distance Ironman in 2019. My initial plan was to do Ironman Barcelona in […]

TriAthy 2019 – Nicola McLaughlin

I signed up for the double Olympic in athy in the build up for Ironman 70.3 in August. I did the swim athy a week previous and was good experience for the 3k distance doing it in 55 minutes. On the day of the race, I met plenty of pulsers much more experienced than me […]

Blessington Triathlon 2019 – Aidan Connolly

I had entered the Blessington standard distance race quite early in the year as I have raced this event a few times in the past. It’s a nice course on quiet roads and it’s so close to Dublin. Armed with only a few 10k runs under my belt, a LOT of cycling but not so […]
