What got you into running?
From a very young age, I always remember my mum and dad running. I grew up watching Mum train for marathons. I used to do the weetbix triathlons as a kid, probably the age of 6. Then throughout school I joined little athletics and competed in cross country and soccer at a high level. So I guess growing up my parents were always encouraging us in sport. I really enjoyed running and training with my brother for cross country.
If you could race any event in the world which one would it be?
I’d love to do Tokyo Marathon. because I think Tokyo is such a cool city! when I was there a few years ago, the marathon was on and thought one day I’d love to come back and race it.
What’s Favourite distance?
My favourite distance is probably the half marathon! It’s not too long and it’s not too short! I like a longer race and the training isn’t as exhausting as a marathon build. You can celebrate post-race better than you can with a marathon because your legs still SEMI-WORK.
What do you like about your COROS and what are your top features on the watch?
I love my COROS because of how lightweight my PACE 2 is! I have a TINY wrist and it’s not bulky like some other running watches. I like that the GPS is QUICK to connect and has great accuracy, it doesn’t mess-up when running under trees & buildings which is a huge plus. The digital scroll button makes it easy to switch between screens during a run. The battery life is BRILLIANT and lasts so long! Uploading to the app is almost instant. The sleep tracking feature is cool too!
All the best for your racing Clare and can’t wait to watch you run your dream race at Tokyo Marathon one day!
