On vacation 5/31-6/7 on Big Island

Aloha. I hate having to come back to the real world and be grown up. But it's ok as vacation was GREAT.

So for those of you who don't know, and who reads this anyways, primary reason for the trip to Kona was Hono70.3. And for those of you who came to this site while looking for blogspot.bman (this is another dude), 70.3 is a Half Ironman (1.2 mile swim/56 mile bike/13.1 mile run). BTW, the other bman has a cool little blog, very sporty.

Anyways, the event went well. I set a new PR at 6:17 and managed not to die of heat stroke or obtain a sun burn that would make me look like Fire Marshall Bill.

The water was great, the bike was somewhat speedy, and the run was just plain painful-super hot. But overall a great race and very well run event. I would do it again. Especially if I can follow it up with about 6 days of vacation.

Did some workouts, shorties, throughout the week while we were there and spent everyday napping at the beach. We swam with the fishes, napped, and enjoyed cold beverages at our little piece of paradise.

That about sums it up. Chat at ya later, BR
