Kona , Tuesday October 6th

Things have been going great. The town is filling up with Ironman competitors and their supporters, the best Iron distance triathletes in the world are here in this small town, on the coast of Hawaii. There are also hundreds of volunteers who travel to Kona to participate. My supporter, my eldest son Sean is here . My other son Aaron and my wife Marlene are unable to make the trip due to school and work. I know they wish they were here to cheer us on in person but will be following online and cheering loudly back home in Burnaby. Today is a rest day so we only did a short 1/2 hour swim this morning.

The best bike shop in townBike Works. It has everything for the cyclist and triathlete. Everthing from swim,to bike, to run plus nutrition and service.

This is Lava Java the hot spot in town for the triathletes. Especially in the morning after a swim in Kailua Bay
