This weekend I’ll compete in Challenge Roth. My best race to date is from Roth, two years ago. Back then I finished 6th in my ironman distance debut with a time of 8:19h. That result made me the fastest Croatian over ironman distance, but I lost that title 5 weeks after when Dejan went even faster in Copenhagen. I was back in Roth last year but illness forced me into a spectator role. Two years is a lot of time so I hope to have a new best race in my resume after this weekend. The race in Barcelona showed that I made some progress and now it’s time to verify that progress with a race result.
