After over 12 months of training and anticipation, we are off to Kona! I am up at a ridiculous hour and can’t wait to get to the airport with the family, board the plane with my bike and head off to the Big Island.
I have all of my camera gear and look forward to posting some updates via video later today. I have already posted a few videos and you can find them and all of the future ones on the top of my home page at www.timothymonk.com. I will also keep the twitter feed full of updates and will do my best to share as much of the action about the race with all of those interested.
Our schedule for today is mostly travel:
9:00 Depart House
11:45 Continental Flight to Honolulu
4:36 Connecting flight to Kona
6:00 Hit our Condo at the Kona Reef complex
7:00 Have a Beer or glass of Wine with my wife on our Lanai (fancy word for balcony)
We have a long day ahead of travel, so I will just try and stay relaxed and enjoy some time with my wife and kids. Thanks to Shani, my kids are great travelers and spending time with them on the road is always a great time.
Tomorrow should be a swim at Dig Me Beach and race registration. The plan for the swim is to swim out to the Coffees of HI boat and get some free coffee and take pictures with the new underwater camera.
I also have a short business meeting tomorrow at Lava Java with our new client Base Performance.
On another note, the Lonestar Multi Sport club website is now published. You can view it at http://www.lonestarmultisport.com. The original URL, .org, should transfer over in coming days. I hope everyone enjoys the new site.
Stay tuned as there will be more to come later today.
