2nd at IMWA

Just a quick post...

I had a great day to finish in 9 hours and 6 mins. Gina Ferguson was just too strong for me, finishing in 8 hours 59, had a cracking race and broke the course record that I set last year.
The difference between us at the end was all in the swim. Gina biked a couple of mins quicker and vice versa on the run. She led from start to finish and I spent the day chasing!
I gave it everything I had, and there's no more I can do than that.

My husband and ironguides coach, Kristian had his best day in IM so far. He went 8:58 and WON his highly competitive 30-34 age group. The roles have been reversed! I am now "wife of Kristian Manietta", rather than he being "husband of Charlotte Paul":)
I had to attend Hawaii roll down, whilst he collected his spot!
I'm very happy and proud of him.

Full race report coming soon...
