2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championship
Last Saturday I competed at the 2019 Ironman 70.3 World Championship in Nice France. It was my fourth World participation and 14th Half Ironman. You may think that I should be used to it by now, but no, I was super nervous about it! The swim was an out and back in the Med, which I've been practicing by swimming in the ocean a lot this year. However, the bike course consisted of 28miles up a mountain for a total of over 1300m of elevation gain (+4000ft) and then 28 miles down the mountain with sharp turns and switchback. Finally, the run was a flat 2 loops course on the Promenade des Anglais (a long boardwalk along the sea).
