Off to Kona for Ironman

I’m headed off to Kona tomorrow to watch the Kona Ironman World Championships.

One of our clients, Lori McCarney, will be participating in her first ever Ironman distance race. She qualified at the Ironman 70.3 race this last spring. I also get to volunteer at the finish line.

This is the mack daddy for many triathletes, to compete in this exclusive event. Most triathletes participate in triathlons for other reasons as well. I think that no matter who you are, no matter what your level, no matter how big, how small, how fast or how experienced, everyone who pariticpates is a champion. It changes lives and I’ve seen this many times.

It is the commeraderie, and the challenge to be the best that I can be, that has given me over 20 years of fun doing triathlon. I can’t wait to see the race!
