My Tri Story:
I signed up for my first Olympic distance triathlon in 1999. Shortly after I signed up for my first Ironman. The challenge was that I could not swim properly (only breast stroke) and I only had 4 months to train for the Ironman. I think I had never been so scared in my life when I went into the water to start the race with 2000 other swimmers on my first Ironman in New Zealand/2000. I finished the swim in mainly front-crawl (the wet-suit helped) and I finished the Ironman in 12hrs 20min and got hooked. In the meantime, I have completed 8 Ironmans of which 3 times Kona.
Next is Ironman Germany in July 2009.
Breat news Briggitte. Good luck in Germany and we look forward to seeing you in the Philippines in August. We just had a test race (Olympic distance) at the same site this weekend and things look good.
Briggite, noted you are doing IM Germany (as several of my tri club, POLO Tri, are doing as well). Since you live in HK, why not thing about Ironman 70.3 Philippines on Aug. 23? I'm organizing it and we would like to have as many participants from abroad as possible.
Hello Briggete !!!
thanks for your answer..
we will be in Hong Kong from April 1 to the 7 or 8.
Hope you can have time to some running or swimming..
We made our 1st Half iron in East London, ZA, and was amazing, but realized need to work a lot more in mi running..
Hope to see you then in HK, it will be great..
Hi Brigitte, i noticed you use a garmin 305, which i have been using for a couple of years, did you use yours for any of the ironmans and how did you find it?
Does it do the distance, ie bike and run or did you just use it for the run for a pace guide etc. Thanks
