One step closer: an update on my training progress

Now offseason is officially over and my first running race of the year is coming up on Sunday, it is time to give an update on how my road to the World Championships is progressing. I am happy to say that, thanks to my sponsors, I am writing this blog while looking at my newest asset! Yes yes, it did happen! I am the proud owner of my first Time Trial Bike. And it is even more beautiful than I expected. Meet my Liv Avow Advanced Pro I! Special thanks to Plieger Wielersport for supporting me, the great service and bike fit to increase my aerodynamic position.

2018: What should have been the year of my first half triathlon

Feels a bit strange writing a blog long after the event took place. But this race needs special attention since it was one of the building blocks of my triathlon road.
