5th at Ironman Western Australia.

Sunday, December 2nd, 2007

We arrived a little later than we planned. But got here to Bussleton in plenty of time, it is a very beautiful part of the world and I have enjoyed my time here very much.

Race day: The weather was perfect, not too warm and slightly cloudy.
I swam ok but came out in 2nd with a big group right behind.
Onto the bike and I was riding well but at around 120km my legs gave out and I ended up losing maybe 5mins to the guys I was riding with.
Off the bike I was in 8th and hoped to pick off as many as I could with a solid run. I ran ok nothing spectacular and eventually pulled my way up to 5th.

It has rounded out a successful season, which included:
A 2nd, a 4th, 2x 5th place, and a 6th place in Ironman races.
A 3rd and a 4th in 70.3.
A 2nd place in a 101 race.
And a European bronze medal in Long distance.

Results I am proud off but looking to improve apon next year.

A few more days here in Bussleton before heading back to the UK to see the family:)

Well done to the TBBers this weekend. Fantastic comeback by Liz, well done! And a great performance by Nicola.
