Happy new year to all my followers! I wanted to share with you the latest news…I have already decided what my 2013 season will look like. Initially, I intended to take a year off of Ironman, but it’s not going to be the case…I signed up for 2 races, Berlin 70.3 in June and the full IM distance in Whistler (Canada) in August. Since December I’ve started training with Alejandro Santamaria, professional Ironman athlete with incredible experience. I am super happy with the cooperation and I already started noticing some improvement. I am swimming much more, running more km. and biking differently.

I am on my way to Kona, the Ironman World Championship will take place in a week time. While seating in the plane I look back and reflect about the journey, and what an amazing one it has been. It all started they day I decided to apply for the lottery program again knowing that my chances to win will be almost null, but you know by now, I won a slot…again. Soon I planned the season, needed to complete an Ironman branded event to validate the slot, and in order to be sure I registered in 2 races, Ironman 70.3 Rapperswil and Ironman 70.3 Antwerp. I ended up participating only in one since I did well in Switzerland, didn’t want to risk an injury. Participating in Kona meant that the summer should be dedicated to training, not entirely of course, but we...
