What is it about Hawaii? What keeps me coming back? Why can’t I stop thinking about the Big Island? About the Queen K? Ali’i Drive? Why in the world would I spend 51 weeks saving just to blow ALL that cash on ONE WEEK?
Aren’t there other races? Aren’t there better hobbies? What makes Hawaii so special?
I think it’s the views. Both above water,
It’s the coffee,
Which tastes even better 700 meters off-shore.
It’s the food,
And by food, I mean ice cream.
In Kona, World Champions are everywhere,
And they happily greet their scantily clad fans.
I’ve grown up with this race:
Now I get to reunite with old friends.
And give those at home a reason to cheer.
Because I know I can do better.
So here goes round four!
