Defending my title at Challenge Wanaka/ NZ.
YESSSSS, yes I did it!
Challenge Wanaka 2016 was my first race ever in
beautiful New Zealand and I really fell in love with this amazing country.
I have always been a country girl and I just feel great here. Things like that
are so important when you want to do well in a race.
The whole excitement of coming back to this country already gave some great
energy leading up to the race. It was a very tight and close battle, but at the end nobody cares if you
win with 27“ seconds ( like I just did) or with 5 minutes.
Very happy to defend my title after 2 stressy days with different issues
that always seem to only happen before races :-) Thank god I got my
boyfriend with me to help me fixing these things that suddenly stop working :-)
I will for sure be back in 2018, I just love this race and the whole team
that puts up such a amazing event. This race has been honored with
being the most beautiful long distance Triathlon in the world and it is
true, all 3 courses are spectacular, but you just have to come and see for yourself.
Feeling pretty good and looking forward to our 5 day holiday road trip to
Taupo, as there is another adventure awaiting us on Marche 4th :-)
IRONMAN TAUPO /NZ.
Never done another full distance race 2 weeks after one, but hey just see
how we go right? Daniela Ryf did 2 with only 1 week apart, so it can’t be
that hard, I got a whole week longer!!
Hug from the most beautiful country in the world,
