    A well written account of Kona from the perspective of an Iron Fan!

    Days before the Kona race, we all went to see the practice swim and laughed our heads off at the UNDERPANTS RUN.

    Day of the race, we all got up at 4AM to go with them to registration. I don’t know if we were support team, entourage or both….but we were there as a functioning unit. Communication was key - between both moms, and dad and brother/brother-in-law and phone calls to those left on the mainland to report “she’s out of the water”; “he had a great transition time”; “just saw her on the bike – she looks great”…..communication was as streamlined and tight and concise as any military unit on a mission.
