We arrived yesterday afternoon (Kona time) after a long day of travel. First a 4 hour flight to Phoenix and then a 6 hour flight to Kona. Needless to say, I was tired of sitting on a plane!
Of course the first thing we did when we got here was...go to Lava Java! :)
Then (after my food digested that is) I went swimming. I needed to MOVE! It was already dark so I went to the Kona Aquatics Center (vs the ocean) which is AWESOME and free. I can't believe it's free. It was such a beautiful night and I already felt like I was in heaven!
This morning I woke up excited to swim in the beautiful blue waters of the Pacific with Sarah. We met bright and early and again, it was AWESOME. (warning - very likely overuse of the word awesome until I'm back home in Pittsburgh :) I just love, love, LOVE swimming in the ocean here. I could literally do it all day long.
I also had a little double brick on the schedule which I did on the hot and windy Queen K. Yep, it's still hot and windy out there in lava-land! I felt good though and it was just great to be out on the course. Race day is almost here! YESSSSSSSS!! My excitement is most definitely building!
