Michelle Bremer – 2nd Place IM Australia
Ironman Australia is done for another year! I had a great race and ran a PB run of 3:11 and overall time of 9:13. I gained the lead at 30km into the ride and stretched the lead out to 12 minutes into T2. I had the fastest bike split of the day by 10 minutes in a time of 5:03! I felt super comfortable on the bike and it was entirely 180km solo, which was a bit lonely but I just put my head down and worked! Unfortunately my new PB run time was only good enough for 2nd place, as I was passed at 37km into the run and had nothing left to fight for that top stop! But, overall happy with how my race panned out!
I’m taking a couple of weeks easy now and then will be moving forward to IM Cairns! I’m looking forward to this one again!
