Instead of all the details written out, I'll recap the weekend in pictures...after this:
41 miles of running
178 miles of riding (11, 600 ft of climbing)
8,000 meters swimming (a little light on the swimming side of things, but it was all beautiful at Hapuna Beach...Kona crabs all over the place)!
not in correct order of weekend events
On the morning of the last day, we always do a BOCA swim race on the HONU course....super beautiful place to swim and get to practice the new course.
What a view from our hotel
Tim and Mariane got us some sweet goodie bags from Vega and BioAstin

BOCA takes over the Hapuna Prince
Aaron and I got to Kona early on Thursday morning so we could get in an extra bike ride. We stopped at Bike Works real quick to get our bearings and some basic directions on which way was the best to ride So we headed south to do the South Loop/Hualalai/Captain Cook/Painted Church Route. What a ride! Probably my favorite ride I've ever done. It was the company... I'm sure! :-) But also such a great, beautiful, clean, smooth road surfaces. So happy we went over a day early to get in this extra ride!!!
The Painted Church
Captain Cooks Monument
