Honu 70.3

I'm on the Big Island this week joining a friend who came to race the Honu Half Ironman.  Nothing like watching a mass swim start to convince yourself that you did the right thing quitting triathlon.  Honestly I wish that I was a little more comfortable in the water - to just to a tri or two a year - but screw it, bike racing does a good job of feeding my rat (I stole that expression from mountaineer Greg Child who described his obsession with climbing as a need to feed the rat).  Anyway I had a great time watching the race and cheering on my friend.
