Sometimes in the course of a long campaign, one has to stop, take a break, and clear one’s mind.
In this case, it is walking down to the shore to watch amazing athletes compete in the #1 Triathalon in the World. Ironman!
A few of my readers know that I live in Hawaii and with this post everybody who is familiar with Ironman will know where I live. I moved here a few years ago to get away from the craziness of the mainland and so far, it has been refreshing and rewarding, besides being just one damn incredibly beautiful place to live and raise a family.
I will be posting today, but only as a pictorial on the race. Check back often as I will be adding more pics, (some you would not see in the usual media), to this post.
I hope you enjoy it and it inspires you to get out of the house and just do something!
