Kona Day 2

Things have been moving at a breakneck pace since my feet hit the tarmac here in Kona, HI. This place, and these people are amazing. I have, so far, managed to survive without any side effects from jet lag. Since I have been here, about 48 hours ago I have run 2x including a sunset 10K with several amazing pro triathletes and olympians including: Belinda Granger, Hillary Biscay, Daniel Fontana, Balazs Csoke, Jozsef Major, Mirinda Carfrae, and Matt Lieto. I have also managed to follow my commitment to swim in the bay at least once every day. If there was some way to explain what the swimming is like here with words, I would attempt it. There is not, so I will post pictures to my tumblr account as well as my page at Pure Performance. If all of this sounds crazy to you, just imagine what it will be like in just a few days when all the athletes arrive for the Ironman World Championships. Tomorrow I will rent a bike from the local shop, Bike Works and attempt to chase Balazs up the hill to Hawi. Be on the lookout for more photos and updates that are sure to follow!
