Thanks to all readers who checked in and tracked Chris and me yesterday- it was, as always, an honor to race here in KONA and we are happy to have a couple of days of R&R after the big day!
Aside from a short period of gusty side winds on the bike segment leading out to Hawi & back, we were fortunate to have really good conditions- cooler temps than last year and overall a really good day!
Chris had an amazing race with his PR of 10:02 for this distance!
I clocked a 10:42, not my IM PR, but my best on this course here in HI; 7 minutes faster than my time last year, but I placed lower in my AG than in 2009.
Race day nutrition was solid, as always; hydration and electrolyte replacement right on point…
Amazing spectators & volunteers, and all the good vibes from friends, family & clients near and far were all so appreciated!
