311 - IRONMAN© 70.3 World Championships – Kyra Wiens Professional

Returning to Ironman 70.3 World Championships for the second year in a row was a huge honor and a wonderful affirmation of the work I've put in since going pro. What's really stood out to me this year is how connected we are in the triathlon community; it may look in my race pictures like I'm alone out there, but the reality is I have training partners, family, sponsors, coaches, and so many other people that enable me to do what I do. I'm grateful for every finish chute, this one in particular because qualifying is a huge honor and because I was so sick going in that I wasn't sure even on day of if I would race. The bike course is certainly challenging, but I'm happy to see Ironman supporting a venue that feels more organic and authentic than some of the courses where athletes are on a closed off highway. I can also attest that the water in Nice is really as blue and beautiful as the pictures show. Appreciative to race with so many friends and to make new ones.
