Short version: a tough day out there ("toughest conditions ever" at the race according to Ironman.com), made some dumb mistakes on the swim, had a decent bike despite almost getting blown off the road, let my head get the better of me on the run, finished. Not a personal best, but not a personal worst either.
Right now though, I'm too busy enjoying this:
|Lava tube along the Queen K.|
|Hiking inside the lava tube.|
to write up a full report. Soon. :) Aloha.
