9th place at 70.3 Lanzarote is not what I want to write about! And to top it all off Stephen did not have a good race either. So we really have to move on from that result, do some proper training and get faster for the next!
Apart from our under par performances it was a great race! A real test. 25 mile an hour winds on a hilly bike course showed who can ride and who cant!
I want to mention Eimear Mullan who I have been helping through TeamTBB, she started the day with a slower swim but rode strong and ran herself into 6th place prize money, in a competitive field with a fast run. Well done Eimear.
I also want to mention Fay Dellimore from the UK who only likes to race in Lanzarote She races Ironman Lanzarote every year. When she started she was a bigger lady, coming to the finish line in 17 hours, in 2012 she came to the finish line in just over 13 hours. After lots of hard work and miles of swimming biking and running she is a slender little lady who did a brilliant performance of 6 hours for the 70.3 on Saturday! Its looking good for 2013!
ThankYou very much to the amazing support we received during the race.
