Kona is crazy! I managed to hold it all together training wise till yesterday ( Thursday) but then I had to adjust due to support crew duties!
Luke is ready! I am so excited to watch him race. After a smashing year for us both this is just cream on the sweet cake of life that we enjoy. For some Kona is the be all and end all of their season. All their eggs go into the Kona basket. For us Kona is a place to try out race strategies of the future against the best in the world.
One day Luke hopes to win this race. However for now he is just happy with coming here as fit as possible and with no pressure. He will give everything he has and will know that he can take risks to learn. He is swimming like a freak and riding better than ever. After doing 3 Ironmans to improve his marathon times he comes here hoping to put it all together. I know he is capable of a top 10 but so many things can happen ... both good and bad.
The field is amazing and everyone is pumped up. There will be about 7 guys truly capable of winning and at least 25 guys capable of going in the top 10. What will be will be.
I am eagerly awaiting the arrival of Summer Twist and JJ. Summer has come out to support us both for the last 3 years. She is a super fan and sister forever. Our mutual buddy Marie is here also and the 3 of us will be uber supporters on the long day tomorrow.
Vicky and Pete ( Luke's folks) are here to cheer and we will all be holding our breath for about 8 and a half hours. Go Lukey!!!!
Good Luck to everyone , Stay safe and Stay tuned :)
