Kona Flashback

Well I am finally headed to Kona tomorrow morning.  Yes, I am probably the last competitor arriving in Kona and that’s the way I roll.  Get in, get ready, race, and go home.

This will be my second time to race Kona.  My first time was in 2005 as an age grouper.  It was my first ever Ironman and even my first marathon.  I qualified at the Buffalo Springs Half Ironman and it was a big step for me to take the slot.  Afterall… I was a sprint freestyler in college and my swim events were anywhere from twenty something seconds to under two minutes.  Anything over two minutes was considered a distance event to me.  Now I was going to sign up for an event that would take me over ten hours!

Hawaii 2005 was definitely an experience that I will never forget…and it took me 4 years to recover from it and want to race another Ironman which was Wisconsin 2009.

So 5 years later I am headed back to the Big Island to race as a pro for the first time and I’m looking forward to it!
