Ryan's 1/2 Ironman Triathlon

Whew...Ryan competed in the Honu 1/2 Ironman last Saturday.  He did great...such an effort...we're all very proud of him.  It's a huge undertaking...his goal was to qualify for the World Championships...and even...with a run he wasn't thrilled with...he did!  This race is a 1.2 mile swim in Hapuna Bay, a 56 mile bike along the North Kohala Coast...Hapuna to Hawi and back, and then a 13.1 mile (half marathon) run through the grounds of Mauna Lani.  Here are a few photos of the event...
The cheering section
mass start for the swim...1600 athletes churning the water

And now...Ryan and his girlfriend Katie are off to Thailand for 
some fun and Vietnam to help build a house for Habitat for Humanity
