Ironman Lanzarote

Sunday, May 19th, 2013

End of the bike today at IM Lanzarote.

Todays race at Ironman Lanzarote was not so great for me. I finished! But a long way behind today! But thank you to everybody for there encouragement. It was really appreciated, I am sorry we both weren’t able to perform better. It was disappointing but we move on and get back to getting ready for the next race.

It was as always a great event, very well organised and the spectator numbers particularly in Puerto del Carmen was incredible, more than ever, it was amazing, wel done everybody involved.

We are now back to Sands Beach had a lovely dinner and now relaxing before bed.

Volcano triathlon and Ironman Lanzarote build up.

Tuesday, May 7th, 2013

Last week Bella, Ritchie, Eimear and myself did the Volcano triathlon as part of our training. Below are some pictures. Bella finished 3rd, Eimear 2nd, Ritchie 2nd and I in 5th.
It was a good fun race and just a short drive from our base at Sands Beach in Costa Tequise.

Next for Bella and I is Ironman Lanzarote in just over a weeks time. The island is starting to get prepared for the biggest sporting event of the year. There are many events throught the year, I would guess at about one; run, bike, or multisport race every weekend takes place here on Lanzarote. So it is a great place to train and also get a race in while you are here.

Sands Beach in Costa Tequise is a perfect location to be at for the Ironman week. It is close enough to Puerto del carmen but also far enough away to be able to relax away from the race site too and get in the last training sessions done.

Thanks to Bob Foy for the great photos.
