KONA

 

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted… heck, I still need to finish my Mont-Tremblant recap…

But…

tomorrow is a VERY big day and I thought I would share what I am about to take on.  At IMMT I qualified for KONA (as a lot of you probably already know) and tomorrow I will be racing in the Ironman World Championship in Kona.  It is an absolute DREAM come true!!! I believed I could qualify for Kona at IMMT and I made it happen.  Hard work really does pay off and I am here racing in Kona because I belong here.  I earned this and I can’t wait to race out there tomorrow with everyone else who has worked so hard to be here.

The theme of this year’s race is “Onipa’a” A Hawaiian word that means: be steadfast, move forward… and never give up. I plan to keep moving forward tomorrow, no matter what. 

Special thanks to Team Coeur for being so awesome here in Kona ALL season long!! Also a big thank you to Coach Jorge from E3Training Solutions who helped get me to the Big Island.

Looking forward to the big dance tomorrow and having the best day of my life.  You only get one “first kona” and I plan to take it ALL in, while racing very smart. It’s going to be an AMAZING day!!!

You can track me tomorrow on ironman.com.  There will be a live tracking site all day long, including a GPS tracking, where you can see my every move on the course (how cool is that?!).
