Dutch Professional Triathlete Heleen bij de Vaate 3rd in IM Lanzarote
The triathlon season has started! Last saturday I became third in one of the toughest Ironman races of the world, IM Lanzarote. After the bike part I was on track for a very good performance. I started as second woman the run. But after 5 km of running I got to deal with stomach problems and so I could not run my planned run time. Probably this has cost me the win. Still I'm glad that I finished the race and got a podium place. I know that I'm in good shape and I'm looking forward to the rest of the season. Next race will be the half distance triahlon in Stein, The Netherlands.
Thanks for all the support, because without you sponsors I was not able to do the sport in this way. This week a fully report about the race will follow on my website www.heleenbijdevaate.nl.
