The journey has begun!

The initial excitement was starting to wear a little thin as we were subjected to a 6 and a half hour stop over in Sydney-and then I remembered;

Ironman athletes from all over the world have been striving to qualify to compete in Kona at the World Championships since 1978- 

and all that excitement and anticipation rapidly returned.

Thankfully, we are finally on our way to Honolulu, before heading to the Big Island!

I still can’t believe that this year I will be one of them!
