I did it, Win on the Ironman 70.3 Switzerland

Thursday, June 10th, 2010

Ironman 70.3 Switzerland – This was an important date in my race calendar for 2010. Who dosn`t like to win and get the finisher-band in the home country, in front of family and friends.

Same nervous than usual, I went to the start, concentrated on my own race and my own pace. I knew what I can do at this time and where my current weaknesses are. I wanted win this race like never a race before. Not only because it is nice to win :-) , no it was just very important for me, to win a race even in Europe with slightly different conditions and race profile.

I did it, Ironman 70.3 title no. 3 … I `m the happiest Xena in the country.
