Kona 2010 – The Ironman Story

October 18th, 2010 by

Boulder was good to me, and I shall return when the colours change again.

Xterra USA, Odgen, Utah

Post race feelings are not unlike a blind date experience I’d say. The hope and expectation, the excitement, the reality and assessment, the mixed emotions.
