race day

ok, let's start from the beginning...I didn't sleep well the night before the race (it was too hot..), but that didn't hold me back from getting to the start line with good feelings :-)
at 7:30 the pro race was started and I managed to swim with a good group of people, but after halfway at the turining buoy I lost these group and.....had to swim alone for the second half ! arghhh...
anyway, I came out of water in 3. place and felt good on the bike since the first km...I tried to keep a steady pace without pushing too hard, the marathon after will be hard enough under these conditions! during the last bike round (at around 140km) there was no water left at 2 aid stations and I had to bike without fluids!!! incredible...
I was able to come to t2 in 2.position and after putting on my compression socks, I started the marathon with good legs and as soon as I could see the gap between the leading woman and the grils behind me I tried a little bit to control the race and to make sure to finish with a very satisfying 2nd place :-)
so...I'm really happy about this succesful start of race season 2010 and wouls like to thank all my supporters!
