Cologne Triathlon Weekend

If you’re expecting a race report, I’m very sorry that this isn’t one. Due to some illness I had to cancel the rest of my races this year… only to come back 100% fit next year!!

Even if I couldn’t race I decided to go to Cologne anyway and spend my weekend there. Why?
Easy to answer. The year before I had a fun race and I was very impressed with the atmosphere of this race. This year I was able to soak up everything (even those little things you don’t pay attention to before a race because you’re so focused).

More than last year I could see how much effort and love the organization put into this race. I was warmly welcomed when I arrived and immediately integrated in the team: cheering the little kids (looove to see them racing!!!), give shirts to them, assist at the awards, give medals to the finishers, do some moderation assistance. As you can see, I was busy all day, had a lot of fun (and of course really wished I could race!).

Conclusion: This race is really nice, friendly, with a lot of fantastic little details. The highlight of the weekend was for sure Joseph’s and Diana’s win on Sunday. Congrats, you did fantastic!

Now want some impressions?

nice morning for a long course race

ohhh, I wouldn't have been more nervous standing at the starting line myself!

I love to see kids racing. This little girl gave a TV interview better than some Pros could do:)
