"There and Back Again"

Chris Sweet is back from the big island, and oh what a tale he has to tell.

"I came to learn that the part of Kona where the race is contested is mostly stark, desolate and brutal. I think the course conditions will influence this race report, in fact, I had some of this report written in my head even before crossing the finish line. At the Ironman World Championships there is much less nuance for me to tease out of the race. Everything is in sharp contrast. You either have it or you don't. Cut and dried. This course, this year, did not cut anyone any slack, and that is how it should be."
And that's just a taste of his amazing adventure. Click here for the rest of the story, or view his feature on
