Images (to accompany the race report)

Spectators waiting for the race to start... Nathaniel was knee-deep in the water. And yes, there's Elizabeth with the red bag!
Running down Ali'i Drie. Note the sponges under the bra straps and uniboob. But ALSO - note the smile.
The Red Bike. Resting comfortably somewhere along the Queen K Highway
Hawaiian Shaved Ice, somewhere on Oahu. Thank God I didn't know about this stuff before the Ironman
My sister-in-law baked me a cake! OMG - I LOVE cake! And it was THE BEST. EVER.
Posing on the Kona seawall after the race, 200 meters from the start/finish. I LOVE the color of the water and giant trees. The beauty is incredible...The small beach behind me is where Nathaniel watched the start.
Yes, the water really IS this color. No editing required.
Nathaniel "borrowing" a bike. Yes, we signed up ahead of time but had to fudge a bit in the process. I have to say, our day spent biking around Kona after the race was my favorite on the island. And "borrowing" bikes only added the hilarity to it all.
I LOVE seeing Bethany, my sister-in-law laugh.
Someone else enjoys Hawaiian Shaved Ice as much as me! My niece is adorable and Andy is a GREAT dad!
Ryan from "Team White Hot". Can you believe they let this guy race? Even though he's a bit, err, odd - he's really a nice guy. But don't tell him I said that.
My first FREE beer sampler! The Fish Hopper was awesome!
Me and Nathaniel on our final day in Hawaii.
Beautiful sunset - one of many on the island!

Awesome photos!!!

I must be weird though, I never thought there was anything particularly special about Hawaiian shaved ice.

Love the pictures. And now I'm craving some shaved ice. I'm thinking the place at our local mall just won't do.
