As an engineer, I believe that motivation, training and a healthy lifestyle end in success.
I started participating in triathlon 13 years ago, actually in tricross, so mountain bike was my starting point. You have an older brother, he starts with triathlon and you follow him ... That's exactly what I did. In the beginning it was one or two races a year ... 5 years ago it became 10-15 races and more than a hobby.
I am Spanish, triathlon is big there (maybe because the weather helps) but since 3 years ago I live in the Netherlands!
Guess? Here people cycle very fast and I come from drawing triathlons ... so in these 3 years I started to focus on my bikes and I make some good improvements! Logical next step was Half distance ... 2018 was my debut in Ironman 70.3 Mallorca (more than 3500 athletes !!), my result: 4.48, not so bad despite being 4th overall after T1!
What remains for me in 2019? I will participate in short distance competitions, the Dutch team competition, Half distance in Seville (my home town) and 70.3 Ironman somewhere ...
But ... .. for 2019 I have a dream, it's called 70.3 Ironman World Championship and I will do my best to be there!
Everyone joins me?
