The fun I had in my first race was the real beginning to continue with triathlon sports. I joined the local triathlon club Hellas and signed up for the Ironman Zurich in July 2017 impulsively. Other triathletes advised me to train for a half distance first, but I was convinced that I could do this and I was attracted to the challenge. With all I have done in my life whether its my job or sport I try to push myself to the limit, approach it with an open mind and see it as a challenge. So with a lot of enthusiasm I started this adventure. I enjoyed all trainings, the races in preparation and I met great people in triathlon world. I surprised myself and other people with the progression I made and my fast times during local races. After almost a year of hard training which I combined with my full time job, I was at the start line of my first Ironman. I was so proud to be there and felt physically and mentally strong. I went in totally blind and had no expectations. During the race I gave everything and enjoyed every minute of it. My parents and friends supported me and that I was the 4th women who crossed the finish line wasn’t something that had crossed our minds! I will never forget this amazing day in my life and the journey to this race was incredible.
