Kona Day 15 – Race Friday! Ohana Swim and Meet and Greet & pick up my Family!

The Ohana Swim this morning was awesome!!  about 25 or more athletes and crew were there to be paddled out to the ocean and then swim back.  It was a great time, and I really enjoyed swimming back with Peter Hudson at a casual pace.  We stopped several times and remarked at how beautiful it…

Kona Day 10 – MOST AMAZING DOPLHIN SWIM EVER! and other stuff

Up early and after a few work related calls and problem solving…. out the door to swim at Kailuea pier with Lyle and Drew……  Lyle and I wanted to both do a wetsuit swim.  It has been 2 months since I have had my suit on and swimming covered in rubber is different than not. …
