Here’s a recap of all the Kona news produced by 303 over the last several days…
We’ve filmed & produced daily videos featuring
- island beauty
- Kailua-Kona landmarks
- hydration & nutrition
- The 2.4mile Ironman Ho’ala practice swim
- The PATH 5k/10k run
- The roads of the Ironman course
- A fun swim out to the Coffee Boat
We’ve explored the “why” behind so many athletes from Colorado achieving World Championship status.
We’ve produced many Facebook Live newscasts, including:
- The early morning pre-practice-swim vibe
- The less-early morning post-practice swim vibe
- The Keiki Dip-N-Dash – Part I
- Keiki Dip-N-Dash – Part II (older kids)
We compiled a solid list of swim tips, with an exclusive introductory video by the Voice of Ironman, Mike Reilly.
We took selfies, went swimming, and had a laughter-filled dinner with Famous Dave, Ironman Boulder Race Director and North American Regional Director Dave Christen…
And the celebrity sightings are too numerous to count (be sure to check out our Facebook album for this one!)
We tried out new gadgets like power meters, and attended the Stryd Running Panel, moderated by the famous Bob Babbitt…
We handed out generous gift bags to dozens of Colorado athletes (with many more hand-offs scheduled for tomorrow morning!) – all made possible by generous Colorado company sponsors.
Here’s a fun video interview explaining all about our gift bags and introducing the 303 Team:
We attended the “Heroes of Hawai’i” ceremony and and observed the long-standing tradition of the Parade of Nations… which included some very clever team messaging!
We went running in the beautiful mountain town of Waemea and enjoyed a break from the relentless heat…
This afternoon Rinny held a press conference and 303’s questions were featured…How do you come back mentally from last year’s DNF, and what did you learn from it? (at minute 12:00) and Why do you love living and training in Boulder? (at minute 22:00).
Write ups on the Cobb Saddles Women’s event, the unveiling of the new Cervelo P5X, a ride-along with Ventum Bikes – all in the works. And the crew is still out attending Tim O’Donnell’s CLIFF party, and the Training Peaks Party! Those stories, and MANY more coming your way yet this week. Stay tuned!
