The Honu Triathlon on the Big Island of Hawaii – New Friends and New Adventures
Rafal and Alicja live in the UK and have been coming to Hawaii for 7 years with the dream of someday owning a vacation home in a climate where they can actually train year-round for all of the triathlons they enter around the world.
We went to dinner on Thursday and talked about their current “bike room,” a bedroom in their flat in London! We laughed when they said how wonderful it was to actually be able to bike outdoors, swim year-round in warm waters, and of course, run any time of the year in moderate temperatures.
On Friday, we closed escrow on their new Kulalani in Mauna Lani town home AND they were fortunate enough to have been accepted into the Honu Triathlon as a “last minute” cancellation replacement entry. There goes furniture shopping!
Saturday…the race was, of course, fabulous to watch with our new client/friends as the main focus. I’m proud to say they finished strong and exhilarated…although Alicja was a bit put off when hearing Rafal had come in 30 minutes ahead of her!!
May the wind always be at your backs, the waters warm, and yours legs fast and strong.
Living and loving the resort life as always.
