kona update 2

It's a week post race and the week has been full of a whole lot of lounging, sight seeing and eating. Three days left in paradise before I head back home (slightly different paradise).
Today, Ryan and I made a new friend. We were enjoying a tasty mango, raspberry and spirullina smoothie when we were joined by a curious passer - by:



He was especially interested in the spirullina and decided to take a taste;


His appetite was unsatiable and he couldn't resist the temptation for more;




While I am in love with this Island (we went all the way round yesterday) and will really, really miss the ocean (after all, I am a 'cancer') I am looking forward to returning to my home to hit the training again for a few weeks.

Ryan is doing very well and has already begun his rehab (in the pool and on the stationary bike), I am very proud of him. He will be back in no time.

Ack! I just realized how that sounded.. (on my blog) I meant the lack of racing in 08 due to injury.. I'm stoked on the Kona thang! It was a crazy day and I was so happy to be up on the podium with ya!
