Patrick Lange on Facebook: "Just passed the finish line of @mainovaag Ironman EC, finishing 3rd. After a solid swim and ride my legs were heavier than I had expected. I just could not keep up the speed in round 3 and 4. Thus I was not able to execute the run I wanted to. But there will still be some opportunities this year to show off what my legs are able to do."
