2011- Ironman Worlds

Week as a spectator..

What a week! Once again, I found myself in Kona during Ironman Worlds. It's been two years since I've been to this event yet so much has changed! I wouldn't say it's for the better as it felt more like a trade show than an event. Regardless, the athletes put on a great race and a great show. Aside from supporting the AIMPers and friends of, I was rooting hard for three pro guys whom I met back in 2009 in Kona. Pete Jacobs ended up taking 2nd, Dirk Bockel I had a feeling would crack the Top 5 this year (he came in 4th) and though Rasmus Henning did not have the day he wanted, I have no doubts he'll be back stronger than ever in the coming years.

Below is a video of the week in review! New friends, new schwag, always fun. I love our sport!
