|Yeah the Ocean awaits!|
I was SO happy I swam 1.2 miles and met some amazing Kona Peeps who invited me to swim the next day to the Ironman buoy think 2.4 mile swim!
Now they say do nothing new on race day and make all your mistakes in training... mm as I am running late to the pier I grab my brand new never been worn new swim suit I start to put it on and realize it s kinda tight! I look at the size a 32 I am usually a 34 but truwest a 32, I squeeze myself into this suit I look lean and mean no time to change!!
I head to the pier and meet my new Kona friends for an Ironman swim.

Swam out to the 1.2mile red ball, was a gorgeous day to be swimming and I was grateful I had my wetsuit on! At the turnaround we waited for our paddler, and suddenly the Ocean came alive as a slither of silver and grey leaped out of the water, wow a baby dolphin how cute then there was dolphins every where I was so excited, I forgot about my swim and we all just swam with the dolphins! There was two pods and a few baby ones in the mix they just stayed around us and I just tried to absorb their positive energy!
Special, magical, wonderful feeling, I just loved the fact they knew we were harmless as they played around us for a long time. I truly love Hawaii and the wonderful Ocean.
Feeling blessed we all headed back to the pier, I thought I had gills growing I had been in the water that long!
