“When you can dream it, you can do it”.... right?
The European season is in full swing, when it would be up to me I would race every weekend, but sometimes I need a bit time to train as well :-) Just coming of Challenge Prague & Challenge Finland ( Turku) with once again 2nd places at both events ( lots of second places this year ), but you don’t hear me complain as I had two very strong races! Both races I felt good in the swim and in Prague I was even able to close a gap that a girl in front of me had caused, this did cost me some energy, but also gave me a lot of confidence and once again shows that I have become so much stronger in the water. My new Wetsuit feels like a 2nd skin and feeling good does make a difference in this first discipline. More about this magical Suit soon.The bike saw a awesome course as both events, I felt as I should be feeling, strong all the way, with a solid run I was able to hold of some very good girls in Prague. The City of Prague was the most beautiful city I have ever seen and I have seen a few :-) I will for sure go back next year, it was a race very well organized and a good course overall as well.
After Challenge Turku I have two more races coming up strait after, Saturday this week there’s my local sprint race, the Jannersee Triathlon , August 19th ( ) sponsored by my partners Skinfit & Pfanner and the week after there’s the Transvorarlberg Triathlon ( ) on Saturday the 26th of August. So fun times ahead of me, lots of racing which I love, not that much training, but I feel that my form is growing and getting better every race. Until the European Championships in the Netherlands, Challenge Almere- Amsterdam on September the 9th I will be in awesome form and will give it my all to perform on my highest level for my friends, family, fans and myself on home soil. Dreaming to become Dutch and European Champion in September every single day...... “When you can dream it, you can do it”.... right? :-)
