Best start of the season: Overall Age Group Win!
Offseason came to an end and it was time for the first race of the season. Time flies when having fun. Had a lot of fun during offseason with training and some running races, also with success. Got a new half marathon personal best in 1 hour, 20 min and 59 seconds. Also made progress on the bike and I was excited to show it on race day. Ironman 70.3 Marbella was on my list as the first race of the season. As the weather in the Netherlands wasn't as good as we all hoped for during spring, it was a night trip out to the Spanish sun. Besides the sun, the climbing on the bike and the swim in the sea were 2 things I really liked about this race. And the race was a perfect preparation for Ironman Hamburg, my first full distance of the season on the 4th June.
