Why you should never pass anything to me…

Friday, January 29th, 2010

I wouldn’t say I was a sporty kid. To tell the truth, I was completely unathletic.

While the kids in my neighborhood were playing tag or ball I preferred to read my books or to draw. I think that’s the reason why you should never expect me to catch something no matter if it’s a ball or a key or whatever – I’ve never learned to catch and it will definitely fall out of my hands.

BUT I’ve always loved bikes! All kinds of bikes. Because going by bike anywhere was of course much easier than walking:)

And as I’ve promised some pics, I’ll show you some very special ones of my preferred bicycles…

My first "bicycle". Very light, but neither aerodynamic than comfortable.My first real bicycle... with some little support.bike001kmy favourite and fastest:)

“The German is back.“

That’s what I heard when I arrived for the second time at training camp in Leysin last summer.

Well, I should give you some more information about me because there are a lot of german triathletes…

My name is Christine Waitz.
You don’t remember names? Hmm, then you could ask for a small woman with reddish braids. If you asked anybody from Roth they could probably help you. Because Roth is my hometown.

I don’t think I need to tell you how I got into triathlon. At least once a year our little town is upside down! That’s where I got infected by the triathlon virus.

I’m really looking forward to the first camp. To meet again the people I met in Leysin where I had a great time and met some new team mates. To have great training, new experiences and hopefully a lot of improvement!

So that’s the short story of “the German”. Maybe in my next blog I should give you some pics?
