The Road to Kona

If you don’t know what Kona or where Kona, or why some triathletes talk about Kona. Kona is the name many people used for the Ironman World Championships in Kona Hawaii.   You have to qualify for this race.  Either through the Legacy system (which to be frank I’m not sure what it is but you do twelve Ironman races in ten years or something like that).  I believe there is a lottery you can pay to enter and then pay again if you get selected to do the race.  The one that I would like to do is qualify for it at another race.  Every Ironman has a certain number of slots that they allocate which is forty or so and every age group gets at least one slot and some of the bigger age groups can get two or more.

The problem with all that is, is that I am an average in the sport of triathlon.  In no way am I in the back of the pack, but in no way am I in the top five.  But that doesn’t mean I cannot be.

I hope to use this blog to keep track of my progress, and not to let this dream go.

Thanks for joining me!
