Just imagine during the Kona Ironman run, you get cheered on by 4 X World Champion...

You're tired. Exhausted. You have another 12-14 miles on the Queen K. to run after a grueling and choppy swim and gusty bike course.  (Winds were so strong it knocked down a medical tent onto a professional triathlete. He went down, yet continued.) 

You're running, oblivious to "another" anonymous voice cheering you on. When suddenly, along comes........4 times Kona Ironman World Champion cheering YOU on. "MAGIC!!!"

(Below: Who could this be?)
(Above. Who could this be?)

Chrissie's presence is equivalent to the President of the United States going into a local pizza joint and talking with the busboys and wait staff.)

(Above: This guy did a massive double-take. OMG OMG OMG, "I just got cheered on by Chrissie Wellington!!!"
Instant smiles. Up to this moment, all the triathletes were in a world of pain. When they noticed Chrissie----instant smiles for miles.  Thanks Chrissie for being out there.)

 (Above: Chrissie turns her bike around to cheer and ride along......)

 (Above: Chrissie encouraging and supporting her boyfriend, Tom Lowe.  How cool is that to witness?)

(Above: And off Chrissie goes. Go Chrissie Go.)

MAGICAL moments in Kona. 
Being in the right place at the right time.
I knew there was a reason why I came. Magic!!

  1. I love Chrissie's smile! It makes everyone feel like they can conquer the world!

  2. I hope I get to meet her one day. I've a long way to go before I can do an Ironman, but she inspires me every single day.
