Ironman x 20

I started my training towards triatlon in september 2010 where I joined Odense Triathlon Klub and started a slow and painful strugle to learn to swim.

In 2011 I completed five triathlons including my first full ironman-distance triathlon. Sadly I got injured in May 2012 and had to stay in bed two months resulting in not being able to run marathons or do triatlon.

I have finished 20 ironman-distance triatlons and this is the list:

Norseman Xtreme Triathlon
“The Extreme Norseman is the Viking of all triathlons.

They mean business in this part of the country. All sections of this race are a bit harsher than what you would hope to expect. You start off swimming through a fjord, which the average temperature at this time of year ranges between 13 and 15 degrees Celsius, and wetsuits are mandatory. The biking section covers 180 kilometers – just hope that it isn’t raining or even snowing on this glorious day. And to finish off the fun, you start the final marathon-distance run at 230 meters above sea level and finish at the top of Gaustatoppen, a mountain towering at 1850 meters above sea level. This race takes place in August, which is definitely the month that boasts better weather than the other summer months, but still, we are dealing with Norway here, not Hawaii.”

In 2018 I had to bye a new time trial bike, but I did not compete in any triathlon that year. I did run 100 marathons sub 4 hours and some ultrarunning.

I think I have done 8 other triathlons from 400 m – 18 km – 4 km to Abu Dhabi Triathlon 3 km – 200 km – 20 km.

If you have to ask the question ‘why?’
you wouldn’t understand the answer.
