Off to Ali’i Drive

I am no Ironman but have aspirations. My training has already begun…

Today, I leave for the Big Island of Hawaii to see the Ironman World Championships. I have signed up for a Cannondale / DuVine tour for a week and activities include a swim-bike-run program along with some exotic things like swimming with the dolphins and manta rays. My brother, whose second home is an airport (any airport in the world as he travels like nobody else I know) has graciously upgraded me to first. I’ll be travelling in style! Too bad my wife can’t join me…the idea of going to Hawaii alone is not the most appealing, but then this is the World Championship of the most enduring event ever!

The highlight will quite certainly be meeting Chrissie Wellington. Since you are reading this blog, I assume you know who she is. If not, look her up; read her book; she is incredible.

More after I reach Hawaii. I can’t wait…
