I did my very first triathlon in 1995 (a sprint distance) with no athletic background.
Soon I got hooked and bit by bit, the distances became longer.
Since then I ran 4 marathons (PB 4.09 h, Frankfurt GER 1999), finished 5 Ironman Races/ Long Distance Triathlons, (PB Holland Triathlon Almere 2005 12.36 h) and a couple of Half Ironman , Halfmarathons and shorter distances in running and triathlon.
My focus is the Iron Distance, so I use shorter races for testing and mixing up the training.
Ironman Canada is my favorite race (so far), in which I participated 2006 and 2007 (unfortunately I had a DNF last year due to heavy stomach problems ).
I think I can still do better than my currently PB, but I still have to optimize my race nutrition, which is my Achilles' heel.
