Kona Bound!!


Last weekend I ran a 5k with my son. Half jokingly, I said towards the end “don’t ever let anyone pass you the last mile of the run”. We smiled at each other and kept trucking along, regardless of the competition. He just eyed the finish line.

Guess what? Ironically, here in Kona… At mile 12, I lost the lead and got 2nd by a mere 40 seconds. Ugh. How does that happen after 5 + hours of racing?? And I can’t keep it together and push harder the last 7 minutes?!

Let’s talk about the good news for a second.
1. 1st place after the bike is – for me – an amazing accomplishment. Finally, I can hold my own on the bike.
2. Holding 1st place throughout the majority of the run is equally as satisfying.
3. Tough course, but body held strong. 7th overall female finish.
And the best part that makes 2nd “ok”……

I QUALIFIED FOR THE KONA IRONMAN!!!!

Goal achieved. Sacrifices worth it.

Race report to come later but in the meantime I am going to sit my tired- albeit excited -body on the beach and do – you guessed it – nothing.
