Nice to hear from you. Yes, it was a hot and windy day out there, but it was an amazing experience - unlike any other ironman I've done. So many people, so much crowd support and 1500 people riding through the lava fields. It was a great experience for the next time I come back.
Recovery started today with a sleep-in, pancakes and coffee, and a little swim in the ocean with the fishes.
I'll have a blog up soon with more about the race.
