Now this is the right way to do an off season. I woke up this morning to find that someone had taken up residence in my bike wheel. See, Brian? (my therapist), I am taking my rest seriously and definitely not training on an injury.Watching the Hawaii IM yesterday was a new experience for me, and it was cool to be out there on the course watching and learning. Chrissie and Crowie were awesome and truly earned their world titles. But, I was most impressed with Rebekah Keat. Keat is an amazing athlete in her own right, but she showed the world some serious sportsmanship when she handed Chrissie a cartridge after the race leader flatted at Hawi. Now that was impressive.
Once again Kona didn't disappoint. The were the egos and tempers, the victories and the disappointments. But, between Crowie's humble finish-line speech and Rebekah's generous act, this year's race was all about class.
