Kona Travel

I am traveling to Kona on Sunday the 5th and will return after the race. I will have my cell and laptop with me. Feel free to contact me anytime and I will return your messages if we miss one another. If you are in Kona, please do say aloha if our paths cross.

During the week, I will be meeting with and following two athletes that I work with who are racing -- Jennifer Johnson and Anthony Herndon. If you like, have a look at Tony's profile on local news back home. Tony is a pediatric surgeon at Children's Hospital and is doing a ton of community service. See here at "video on demand":

Jennifer won her age group last year at IM Wisconsin and has worked through late summer mono. She is one tough gal and I am confident she can overcome the highly unusual lead in to race this summer.

As well, I hope to be volunteering with Steve Black on race day at swim to bike transition. I will also be on the Coffees of Hawaii floating iced espresso bar with Albert Boyce Tue through Thurs each morning for swimmers (6:30am to 9:30am).

I'll also be training during race week with 2-3 athletes who are visiting or live on the island. There will be an Epic Camp alumni gathering on Thursday as well as some visits to Lava Java. I hope to ride the bike course on Monday and Friday (part of it Wednesday).

During the week, I am going to try to keep my camera close at hand and post pics of the experience. The Big Island is a special place. I'd like to share that with you guys! Keep checking in and I'll do some writing and some visual sharing.

Aloha,

coach KP
