My 8th Ironman in Zurich.
Ironman Switzerland was another challenging task that I am satisfied of achieving. For us Floridians the only place near Miami to train for the hills is Clermont, so I appreciate that I was able to prepare myself there.
While competing in Zurich, I had the taste of what it is like to bike in the tour the France for just one day.
The scenic green landscapes, the cows with bells in their necks making that sound that I will always remember. The bunch of people cheering and running next to you at the top of Break heart hill, located at the last part of the two laps of the Bycicle course (Just like the one in Boston Marathon a killer almost at the end).
The amazing physical condition of the competitors. This event was mostly raced by man but the few women were just incredible.
I missed the U.S. volunteers they really take care of us, but for the rest, the European Ironman organization was excellent.
The lake was clear water with some currents and the run took us through the historical city.
Today I am sore but happy and
I am deeply touched by the messages of love and support of my couple, trainees, friends and family.
All of you helped me to push myself to improve and get cure.
Having Fibromyalgia and fighting pain each day, took me to this life style and I won't change it for anything else.
I will keep bringing the message of health and positivism through the practice of inner peace, self consciousness, appreciation for little things in life, sports, and healthy eating.
You can also be an Ironsoul.
