Racing in Kona!Andre Barbieri
While in Hawaii, I also did a Sprint Triathlon in Kona, on the Big Island. It was filmed by the Deep Blue Films crew for Mormaii. That island is dreamy, and also the Mecca where our sport (Triathlon) was born –more specifically, the Ironman. While I’m not ready for an Ironman, ( plus I have another goal) we raced on the exact same places, same transition place and all. It was the most beautiful place I raced in my life! The swim part feels like you’re inside an aquarium: there’s coral, fish, turtles, warm water! Then the bike and run portions all go thru the beautiful village of Kona, always right next to (or very close to) the ocean. Really good memories from this one, good times!
