Sent to my phone, a piece of back home!! Kainoa at the swim race this morning. It's a favorite race, in a favorite place, with my favorite people, on my favorite island,.however, I am truly taking this experience and making it a worthwhile time in my life. It helps A LOT the crew of athletes racing REV3 Knoxville tomorrow are incredible people. SO much talent, so many inspiring stories, a lot of dedication, and it's motivating to be surrounded by people who want the most and expect the best of themselves. I used to think triathletes are a weird bunch, (and sometimes, somethings are), but for the most part, its a lot of hard work on a daily basis that want to experience it on race day, nothing wrong about that...I am inspired.
Back home a lot of hard work has happened and tomorrow it's time to let it happen...
This morning we jumped into the river and I about jumped out quicker than I got in! My arms went about 100 mph, they felt amazing! Instantly I thought the swim of my life would be on the horizon. Then I noticed I was dragging my legs as they were frozen blocks of human ice! Perhaps it wasn't a "fast swim" I had happening but a survival thrashing. Tomorrow will be better, we will be in fully warm n' thick wetsuits.
Almost time to party!!
