This was the 4th time I have done the race. I know it was a late pickup for the organizers to keep this one going, but they did a fantastic job in the time they had. Also, the conditions were pretty miserable for the race, but it was still VERY cleanly run, and another wonderful multisport experience for me. With the wind, cold, rain, and low water temps, the swim was cancelled, for the benefit of the athletes, and it was the right call.
Randy, thank you for picking the race up, and your wonderful job with it! It was a great experience, and honestly what multisports is about, overcoming all obstacles in your way, including the weather.
Yes...I'm an addict. Some day, I WILL do Kona!
