"Love life, do everything with joy and a positive attitude."

Eva Hürlimann

Nurse and Mother

I am Eva Hürlimann, 35 years old and mother of three children. Before the family I worked as a nurse. Now I live in the rural Emmental in Switzerland.
I have been running regularly since I was 15 years old. The distances became longer and longer. Running and triathlon give me the perfect balance to everyday family life.

//// Why did you start running - what was your motivation?

After 8 years of figure skating in my childhood I realized that this was not my sport. I love to be outside, to move and so I started running and triathlon at the same time. 

//// Do you remember your first race? How was your feeling when you finished?

My first run was the GP Bern, a 16km run through the capital. I was incredibly proud to have managed it and noticed that I like longer distances. 

//// What is the one run you'll never forget, and why?

My race that I will never forget is the World Cup race this year. I competed in my first Ultratriathlon race (5 times Ironman) and won it immediately in new world record time. 

//// Why are you a 361° ambassador? What motivates you to go beyond expectations?

I fit very well to 361° because I noticed in Ultratriathlon that I can exceed my expectations. You just have to want and do it, that's a mental story. I love mental and physical challenges and I am happy to exceed my expectations again and again.
