Using riot police to overcome my fear of mass swim starts, I swim-bike-run my way through chop, wind, and lava as an underdog in Kona. Spoiler alert: triumphant ending.
See you all at the Kona viewing tomorrow (27 Oct)! Dont' forget to RSVP.
I would hardly consider you an underdog going into kona, considering you were first in your age group at IM NYC and first female amateur, right?
Hmmm...I do try to explain that in the race report, but considering what every Kona veteran told me about being a first timer in Kona and still new to the sport, and considering who I was racing, yes, I was an underdog :)
