Ironman Melbourne

Now IM Melbourne is also history and I am already back in Germany. This race was a taff one. The condition wasn t the best but you can t change it.

It is always special to swim in the ocean. I couldn’t t see anything so I tried to catch the feet in front of me. I got of the water with the main pack. The bike starts with strong head wind but I could hold a small gap to the leaders. After 100k I got problems to hold the pace. The last 45k we got tail wind but it was also hard to hold the pace high. 11th place I got off the bike. I had a good felling for the run and it was hard to push the pace not to hard for the first 20ks. After 30k is getting hard for everyone. I catched a few more guys during the last ks and I finished  6th. I was very happy about the my race and the points for kona.

Thanks everyone for supporting me during my journey.
