What a fantastic race! The swim was pretty chaotic with a lot of corners, but I managed a decent 28:31. On the bike I decided to take it easy for the first 45k and then see what was left. I managed to stay with a small group of fellow athletes (while respecting the drafting rules of course) for the first half. When I saw a opening after about 43k I decided to sprint away from the group in order to not being followed. I pushed and dropped the pack. The last 45k I pushed hard giving me an overall average speed of a little over 39kph! On the run I felt I was flying. Maybe I started a bit too quick but I felt strong. With the heat rising I had to slow down a little bit in the last part of the half marathon. A 1h20 half marathon netted me a total of 04:12:47. A massive PR!
