Jodi Ironman World Championships rock and roll this Saturday!

Posted on

Okay I am not a big blogger and I even hear about it so some people are checking : )   I really don't like writing about myself. But recognition gets support. And without some support from sponsors I would not be racing around the globe. 

This Saturday Ironman World Championships is in Kona, Hawaii. Where EVERY triathlete would like to experience but only just over 1% in the world get to. Two of them this year (both qualified at an Ironman) are Jodi which I believe will be # 6, 7, maybe 8th time I don't know.

The other is very dear friend/absolute animal/and diabetic Bill Carlson. I will be there cheering louder than anyone for them. That and actually working the event. Here are some old shots from many moons ago: Billy C. and I somewhere in no mans land middle of the desert riding to Las Vegas from Upland California circa early 90's? We have done the 265 mile ride (2 days) quite alot but those bikes are look pre STI shifting, etc. Other is Jodi smiling as she busts out her tyoical 3:45 marathon there down famous Alli'i Drive running down tons in the process.

Other shot is yours truly mid 90's somewhere out on the Queen K. Yep this place they hold the Ironman World Championships is special. To say the least. Kona, Hawaii. The Big Island. For the Big Dance. Good luck you two. May Madam Pele' be at your sides and the Mumuku winds at your back. 

  Folks of course can follow it live on From the 2.4 mile swim. The 112 mile bike. The 26.2 marathon run. Dang that's long. almost forgot just how such........................
