Kona Diaries 2015 – Day 17 – Race Day – My badass medal!

It’s nearly 1am local time and we’ve just returned from the finish line party after leaving ‘home’ at 4am this morning to go do a silly race thing.

I got round. I’m chuffed to bits with my time considering the training that I’ve done this year.  I’ve a little (er, lot) of sunburn on my shoulders and arms but have a monster of a medal.  Here’s a photo of me taken about 10 minutes after receiving it just after the finish.


I’ll be posting a slightly longer ‘race report’ in a few days time.

Thanks for all the support pre-race, during race and post race.  It means a hell of a lot to me.

    Congratulations Funkin, so happy for you. I’ve just read 14 days worth of you blog this afternoon, and now I feel as though i’m in Hawai’i :D
