A great view of KONA (not through my eyes)

Man this guy made a great video!  He got into Kona via the lottery and just absorbed every part of the day with so much positivity.  Sometimes as a faster age grouper I yearn for an experience like his, finishing in the dark, just out there soaking it all in, not worrying about splits and what place I'm in.  I've been able to do that some while pregnant, just racing for fun, not caring how I'm doing.  And I still make an effort to smile and enjoy myself and cheer for others even when I am racing hard, because after all, I don't have to do this, I'm not getting paid.  I choose to.  Just really love this guy's attitude. Enjoy!

Okay, first off, I'm sincerely happy to find your blog. I can tell I'm going to love it here. I don't always get a chance to blog hop anymore but glad your comment on Jill's post caught my eye. Love this video. I cried at the end about how he did it for his dad and felt him the whole way. Reminds me of how I feel my dad when I run. Wow! Inspiring! YOU are inspiring too! Congrats on expecting your 4th kid. Can't wait to catch up on you Leslie!
