Ironman South Africa

I am posting from South Africa three days after Ironman. It's been an amazing week here. I was happy to place 4th on a very HOT day with a overall PR of 5 minutes.
My Result
Swim 59
Bike 5.08
Run 3.34
Overall 9.46
Pro Women 4th place
Overall 25th
1st South African Women
(1st American too)

Unfortunately there was only one spot for Kona and I knew it was going to take a win to get it.
This is a great way to start the season off.
As always I thank my family for all there support.
I thank my coach Paulo for his making sure that I arrive at my races ready and prepared.
I too thank my sponsors for all there support.
I shall definitely write a race report soon. For the next few days I shall enjoy my family and all the good South African food It's great to be HOME!

Nice race girl! That 1 slot thing is so frustrating, happened to me in IM Japan last year, when 2nd place doesn't even get a slot I was nothing but crying!

You are on fire, this will be a great year for you!! So happy about the PR too!
