Bellas IM Hawaii Race Report

Here are a few words to tell you about my race today at the World Ironman Championships in Hawaii.
My result of “DNF” was disappointing, that is for sure!
I was so motivated and excited by my last years 7th place, I really believed I could do that again.

I felt happier once the race was underway, those last 2 hours before the race are nerve racking! And being on the start line is no fun.
I had a good swim so I was happy with that. It was hard work and I had to concentrate hard.

I thought I rode ok, it was a fairly lonely ride for me, but I did pass a few girls and then a whole gaggle of girls in the penalty tent at Hawi!
Then I got to watch them all pass me while they continued to agresivly draft. I was not impressed.
The bike was hot, but no side winds this year. However there was plenty on head winds which was tiring to ride in.

On the run I felt hot from the start! At every aid station I tried to cool off, but it just did nothing. I was running ok for a few miles and ran myself into 13 position, but then I lost it! I felt hot and I was loosinng my strength. I got slower and slower and felt worse and worse. I could not go on, and mile 10 I had to call it a day. Dehydration is of no help!
I was upset. It feels awful to have a bad day.
But I am over it now. I am now believing that it was a good swim-run session for my next races! Loved my Triathlon Shorts.
Well done Teresa! I am impressed!

Britain’s Ironcouple, and top ten favourites for this weekend’s Ironman World Championship in Hawaii, Stephen and Bella Bayliss checked in today with

"Today Stephen and I left Team TBB's pre Hawaii training camp in Jeju, South Korea for Kona, Hawaii. We have had a great 4 weeks training and tapering here. The weather here in Jeju is perfect for our preparations for Hawaii.
We are both fit and strong and looking forward to race in our our SLS3 compression socks and triathlon Shorts.
Speaking personally she comments; “It is amazing how quickly time goes! Already it is almost time for the Ironman World Championships again. I am still excited by my 7th place finish there last year.
Since Hawaii 2008 I have had 5 Ironman wins so I feel good and strong going into Hawaii. I will play my game smart like I did last year. I will aim at top 10 again. If I do that I will be very, very happy. If I am near the top 10, of course I will be pushing for top 5. Right now I am concentrating on each session at a time to make it possible to have a very strong race. After Hawaii I am not finished, I will go on to race my favorite race, Ironman Florida, where I will race for the 8th year in a row! Having won 5 of them.
Stephen Bayliss comments " The world Ironman championships is my long term goal. I am working everyday to get to the very top there. It may well take a few more years hard work. After finishing in 18th place last year I am really looking to improve on this position, my aim for this year is to be in the top 10, if I do this I will be very satisfied. “
