KONA 2011

Wow, what a day. Conditions were pristine!   Not hot and not windy, save a few gusty bits heading out to Hawi and back.

I must thank you blog readers and twitter followers, some of whom I had the great pleasure to meet  in person this past week, for sending your good wishes to me.  Always very much appreciated!

The day after a big event like this, for me, is always a bit of an anti climax.  It's a year in the making, and it's an incredible high and then…it's over!

At the moment, while I'm happy with my Kona IM PR (22 minutes; a finish time of 10:17, down from 10:39 from 2010), of course, being a high-goal setter, I've got a HUGE fire in the belly to get on the podium next year, as I missed it yesterday by the skin of my teeth (57 seconds).

(Remind me WHO says Paleo doesn't support a strong performance at the races? : )

Today is dedicated to taking it all in, getting a bit of R&R with my husband and good friends, while we spend on more day in paradise before heading home tomorrow.

Send your post-race questions along, please, as they always make for good blog topics!

And again, thank you for your support!
