Iconic Noosa Triathlon – how Fiona became inspired and coached by Liz to complete her first ever Olympic distance triathlon

18 months ago I had a DIY bike with a basket, could barely run for the bus and thought swimming meant floating up to the pool bar for a g&t.  Four months from now I will stand on the starting line of a full Olympic distance Triathlon in iconic Noosa.  How did I get here?

I was inspired, motivated and coached by my good friend Liz Stapleton to push myself out of my comfort zone and take on goals that I never thought possible.  The benefits have been enormous, not only in a physical sense but also mentally as I began investing time in myself after 10 years of focusing predominantly on my small children.   Since then I have completed 3 smaller Triathlons, left my enjoyable but safe job and am following a long held dream to run my own business.

Who knows where I will be in another 18 months?  Thanks Liz.
