It’s getting close and I am so excited !! It’s so fun to be back on the Big Island – seeing friends and doing final race prep !

The Pictures say it all….

IM World Champion Chrissie Wellington, Catrina Morrison and I at the airport at LAX

Norman Stadler and baby on the Flight to Kona

Had fun training with a great friend from Spokane Sam – we rode the top half of Hawi on a real windy day and practiced the descent –
I want to be able to hammer down – NO FEAR !!

A seriously windy day - gusts up to 35 mph

Doing the Blue Water Swim Race at Kukio Bay with friends Kevin Moats and Laura Sophiea

We had some good friends over for dinner, here I am with Morgan Clark owner of All3Sports !!
One stop shopping for all your on-line Triathlon needs....

It was a great night that also included Don Bosch from Knoxville, Morgan, Holly from GU, myself and Eric Bell - pro triathlete also from Knoxville. The evening really was a blast - it is so fun to see friends throughout the week.

Myself, Morgan and Holly !!
It was so great to see Holly again - GU has been a great Sponsor of mine and Holly is a super friend !!
