I've been doing tris since '05. I was hooked on Ironman after I did my first in Wisconsin in '07 and I loved it!! Since then, I've done 6 more IM races including, Louisville, China, Cozumel, and Kona 3x's. My next IM will be Kona '11. Can't wait to go back!
Yeah, the ride was rained out. And then I was going to swim at Levagood with the group at 6 am, but then I got to thinking that it would probably be cold because of the rain. So, I may attempt a 6 am swim after a week of 85 degree days!
congrats on getting to Kona, enjoy your time there it is a magical and spiritual island. I went in in '99' to support my Bro and always said I would return one day either to compete or spectate. If you want any info or help please feel free to get in touch. Just enjoy your day, take in the atmosphere of the race and keep going forward no matter what. Get to the finish and you will know, your emotions will let you know the true fulfillment and will remain with you for the rest of your life.
Congrats on qualifying for Kona! Awesome!
Please check out my site in regards to picking the right supplements. Many Top Athletes and Olympic Gold medalists are using the brand I am a distributor for since they are the only brand that has a $1million dollar purity guarantee and also NSF Certified for Sport. Hope to hear from you!
I loved it. It helped that the weather was perfect but I loved the training and the taper made me feel like a superhero. It was big fun. I am doing AZ this fall and really looking forward to it, if I can learn to run off the bike maybe I can get to Kona too.
