Ironman Rapperswil-Jona

Ironman Rapperswil-Jona

This year it was the first time that I participated at this event. Rapperswil-Jona is just 15 kilometers away from my home. I pass it every day on may way to the office. It is a very nice city at lake Zürich with a port for small ships and a lot of nice restaurants just near the lake. In summer you feel like being somewhere in Italy when you sit in one of the Restaurants at the lake.

At the triathlon we were there employees from our company and I took over the biking part. It was great. I had to do 90 kilometers, 2 turns and were not bad. I were able to overtake approximately 50 bikers and I was not overtaken by one. That was real fun.

I always dreamed of once doing triathlon but had not the time to train swimming. Therefore it was pretty luck that we did it as a team. The distances were 1.9 kilometers of swimming. Ugly! When you were looking from the start to out over the lake to the point where they had to swim to, it was unbelievable so far away seemed it.
