WRT 09: Its finally over.

It began with this...

An innocuous challenge in the fiery lava fields of Kona... fine, it wasn't that hot... and it wasn't at Kona.

Let me try again...

An innocuous challenge in the Academic Oval of UP. (Doesn't have quite the same ring to it, but It'll do.)

Age vs. Experience. The Jeremy VS. the Hector. White Rock 09, who would emerge victorious?

I'd have to say, even though I've never done a half-ironman before, I was feeling pretty confident. Age whups Experience any day!

Well, the race is over. All the ballots have been counted...

and the winner is...


Yes, I lost!

Before I get into any specifics. I'd like to take this time to apologize to my many friends, supporters, and fans. Yes, I know I came in to this race confident of victory. But as Macca discovered his first time around Kona, an ironman is a tough and ultimately unpredictable race. Much respect to the Hector. I'll get you next year!

Coming Up: The race report.
