Kona Favorites

In the spirit of a little race coming up this weekend, I thought I would list some of my favorite things about the big island. In no particular order...

People watching


Underpants run

Seeing friends on the course while racing.

The Lava Java "Java Shake" oh my, frozen coffee heaven in a cup!!


Finishing the race and knowing the season is done and I gave it 110%.

Floating in the ocean and looking for sea turtles.

The chaos and excitement of race day.

Hawi turn-around and the screaming down the hill from Hawi-sensation, before the dreaded: headwind-oh-dear-I'm-only-moving-8mph-section.

The smell of sunscreen.

That ice-cold wet towel they throw on your shoulders in T2 before that little marathon run in the heat.

5 Days!!
