Kona, Bike Check, ST Get Together
Desiree Ficker's bike
I am one of 200 people world wide who won a lottery slot to the 2007 Ford Ironman Triathlon World Championship in Kona Hawaii this October 13. This is THE Super Bowl of triathlons where 1600 the very best triathletes in the world compete for the championship title every year. I however, am not one of them. The Ironman distance triathlon includes a 2.4 mile swim, followed by a 112 mile bike and then finishes with a marathon of 26.2 miles. Yes, I am crazy, but in a good way!
