Hawaii 10

It's Ironman time, and that means Kona! I was able to work out my itinerary so that I had a layover in Phoenix; it was just long enough to get it a workout (5 on 5 off thru 40 GHR and front-foot elevated lunge, 4×3 RL, 5 on 5 off thru 40 push up and curl, 4×3 bench quick style, and 5×40@30sec rest crunch) with trainer Iron Will, eat some lunch, hike up Camelback Mountain, and jump back on the plane (almost literally—I got back to the airport at 1:15, my plane was supposed to have left at 1:55, and I still had to check in at the ticket counter plus go through security. We ended up sitting on the tarmac for an hour due to rain so I could've had a little extra time, but it was a great amount of time and a fantastic late morning.

Me and Will halfway up (that's as far as we made it, and only there because we ran up and down)

I finally made it to Kona after nearly 22 hours of traveling and was ready for bed!
