Ironman 70.3 Sunshine Coast, Australia

Noosa Heads is just 40 minute drive from Mooloolaba, Sunshine Coast. So racing here felt like a home race to me. I had a great swim (first out of the water), so I was jumping on bike as a first female. First bike loop I was holding pace with Caroline Steffen and Annabel Luxford, which is positive as they are both super strong bikers.

I pushed the long and steep climb and thought the race could still be good for me. But on the long descent I had no power to keep up with my c

Ironman 70.3 European Championship in Wiesbaden, Germany

Because training went really good in Aix les Bains, I was really looking forward to race European Champs. I was lazy to pack my bike and organize flights and rental cars, I decided to drive my Dacia from Aix to Wiesbaden... I usually don't drive more than two hours, and this trip should be about 6 hours. But I calculated, that by the time I pack my bike, drive to the airport, wait for the flight, fly, rent a car and drive to Wiesbaden, it will be almost faster to just drive... Well, I forgot about the possible traffic jams during school holiday... So to arrive to Wiesbaden it took me over 8 hours ... Lesson learned... Race day Average swim followed by a very bad bike ride ( I just had no pow
