    Kona 2005- 10 days and counting!!!

    It was a first this year; we searched, but no Speedos were spotted yesterday when we first arrived in Kona. Every year since we can remember we have seen at least one Speedo out on the Queen K going for an early afternoon ride as we drive from the airport into town. At first we were shocked, but then, we patted our selves on the back. The underpants run has finally gotten through. Tri-geeks were actually listening to us. We knew they were always laughing at us and not with us, but for the first time we thought we were doing our job. This feeling of pride lasted a very short time. Immediately following the swim this morning we had two very significant Speedo sightings. We were a little depressed at first but to be honest, something just didnít feel right yesterday. After the sighting we all felt a wave of comfort come over us- we were home again, its Ironman time in Kona!!!

    Stay tuned all week for daily updated pictures and stories from the big Island.
