I've been a slacker blogging in the last couple of day.  The day was long, the course was rough, the wind was tremendous. I promise the world's longest race report in the next week or so.

THANK YOU FOR ALL OF YOU WHO HAVE SHARED THIS JOURNEY WITH ME.  Your support has meant more to me during the dark times than you will ever know.

Thanks for all of the well wishes.

I packed everything up and checked the bike in.  I almost left my running shoes at home.  Yeah--might need them.

Another great day in Kona.  I've been staying on Pacific time since I have been here--which means I'm waking up at 4:00 am.  It allows me to get my notes done.   After putzing for a couple of hours I ended up getting a phone call from Carrie at 7:20--she told me the underwear run was starting at 8:00.  I thought it was two.  I headed out like a bat out of he!! with Danette and the kids. 

I ended up getting there with about 10 minutes to spare.  It was amazing to see so many healthy people out there.   After taken the sacred Underwear Pledge we started to head out on the course. The race was a nice mile jaunt with massive hills (not) and world class pace (not).  Afterward we headed over to get tickets for the pre-race dinner and then a Scandinavian ice.  World class. 

After going home we caught up with Ron, Brent, Rose, Miles and Joel. We headed over to the Sheriton.  But decided that we wanted a white beach. We ended heading out north of the airport to a beach (I don't recall the name).  To get there we drove maybe a couple of mile on a road made out of lava and was super bumpy!  After lunch I went for a quick dip with Layton and Dennae.  During a walk later we saw a turtle playing in the surf (check for Dennae list). 

On the way back we picked up Aaron Smith at the Athlete's center and took the poor guy to our house to recover from his ride.  He and Carrie hammered the Ironman bike course all day. 

That evening we headed over to the Ironman prerace meal.  It was unbelievable.  It was like a Superbowl event.  They opened with a luaua like start complete with Hawaiian history, dancers and fire!  Then, they have the variety of pick-me up films and speakers.   It was a great pick-me up.  Finally, they wrapped up with the athlete's overview.  Good stuff.
