This will probably be my last post before I leave for Kona on Thursday. Yesterday, we did our last longish bike ride. 40 miles to Waimanolo and back. It was my best ride this year and I was in my aerobars the whole time. I did get a new bike that I haven't blogged about yet, I will do that when I get back.
Today was the Outrigger Canoe Club Invitational swim. It was a 1.2 mile swim with a start at Kaimana beach. I didn't do a great time, but everyone said this race is at least 15 min harder than the Honu swim. It was really brutal out there. We were against the current for a good 3/4 of the race. Overall I was pleased. It was a hard race and I reached my 3 goals.
1. Didn't have to be rescued by jet ski
2. Wasn't last
3. Finished within the Honu time cutoff.
Before I forgot, my brother will be tweeting from the race to the account http://www.twitter.com/deannahonu if you'd like to follow along.
Here are a few pictures from today:
I look slightly dazed here, thanks for the new suit dad:
Coming out of the water and so happy to see friends:
