I am on my way to Kona and looking forward to a great couple weeks. I am sitting on the plane with my brother Matt for the last 2 weeks before the big race. I can't wait to get back to the Island. I love Hawaii, and thrive on the warm weather and the humidity of the Island. I love swimming in the ocean everyday and just relaxing looking out to the ocean.
I had the opportuntity to spend 3 weeks in Hawaii last month training. I had a great training block and got to enjoy the islands. I came home 3 weeks ago to get my final prep done at home with some of my training partners and swim team. The lead up this year has gone great. I also got to get quality family time in. My son Kaiden had his 4th Birthday and we have been playing for days with his remote control cars and racing on his electric Formula 1 race track. He is a race car finatic and addicted to Scooby Doo.
A couple weeks ago I received my brand new Trek TTX 9.9 SSL. It rides incredible! It is lighter by a good amount and fast. I will have a blog entry in the next couple days with all the details and photos of my new ride.
I will be trying to get a blog entry in everyday so come back and see what is going on in Kona the last 2 weeks heading into the big day.
