    Hawaii 70.3 - 2019

    Yep, GF and I did it last year. Flew Jetstar to HNL then to Kona with Island Air. Picked up a car from the airport. We stayed in Kona the entire time at an awesome air bnb on white sands beach and did 3 or 4 days of sightseeing before race day. Drove out to Fairmont on race day, parked there and got the shuttle to Hapuna State Park (GF got the shuttle back to Fairmont for T2). Swim - absolutely amazing! Bike - actually really enjoyed it, wasnt too windy, got rain up the top of Hawi, lots of rolling hills Run - lots of running on grass and a few undulating small hills. One part called Hells Kitchen which is a long out and back stretch with no cover. We then flew back to HNL for a few nights and more sightseeing. Id definitely do it again. I took my own bike but if you can hire a nice bike it may be easier Feel free to ask any q's

    Last time I did a full marathon, I was a whippet, young and inexperienced. I was going around on 20.1's around 85 mins. I took that same philosophy into the marathon going through through the first 20.1 in around 1.28 or 1.29. Hit the 30k mark. It was not pretty, body completely shut down, I didn't know about fueling back then. At the 35k mark a girl dressed as spongebob ran past me. I ended up coming home in 3.35ish. If i did one now, id settle into a comfortable pace for the first 30K, and then start to pick it up. As they say - the race starts at 30K Good luck!

    1st Race in 18

    4.30am start for me too. First time doing Nowra Tri, I actually didnt mind it. Other than getting stung twice by Jellyfish twice (once on the arm, and the second time on the face) The run hurt like hell, I ended up limping home in 6 min KMs I'd def do it again!

    WS 70.3

    Swim went well, bike went well, had no legs in the run as expected. Set out of T2 with Mick Ennis, but that lasted about 1k. Forgot my garmin and HRM so was doing all on feel. I once forgot my cycling shoes a few years back! Time to regroup, pick some races for next year. Decided to not put the cash down until im ready to commit 100% to training and diet. Also need a new bike!
