It has been a long and exciting day here in Kona. I have a nice brown tan and very sore feet. We watched some of the most exciting racing since Mark Allen and Scott Tinley dualed. This year's race showcased some of the best running in history. Six of the top ten men ran sub 2:50 marathons. Amazing!!!! The race was won on the final 2 mile stretch. The pro race may be over, but the real Ironman has just begun. Racers will stream in throughout the evening trying to beat the elusive stroke of midnight when athletes are pulled from the course. We will be back down at the finish line to watch these amazing people become Iron men and women. Below are some photos of the Mens winner...
