Up to 30°C, water temperature of 23°C and not one cloud to be seen. It was perfect Hawaii-weather for the longdistance triathlon in Gluecksburg. The spectators could sit on the beach relaxing and watching the triathletes burn in the sun.
Elke, Ralf and me finished as a mixed relay team on the third place in a wonderful time of 9:55:42. Especially Ralf, who finished his 180 km in exactly five hours has shown a stunning performance. I finished my marathon distance in 3:32:37, which is a good time for me regarding the temperatures.
Thanks to my team members, the organisation and the cheering supporters for this wonderful experience. I will definitely come back!
