Send Ryan to Kona
You may have seen on Facebook or heard through the grapevine that I literally won the triathlon lottery by getting randomly selected alongside 39 other lucky individuals to compete at the IronMan World Championships this year in Kailua-Kona Hawaii! For those of you who aren’t familiar with the race, all you need to know is that this is like the Super Bowl for us triathlon enthusiasts but you get to play with the pros instead of just watching!
As you might imagine, I am flipping out about this and couldn’t be more excited, but there is a catch. Although you're guaranteed a spot in the race that doesn't mean that anything is paid for. The race fee + getting there + accommodations + all of the extra training and equipment expense is a bit more than either Jessica or I planned for this year financially.
You may or may not know that my dad is a professional Fine Artist. He has very graciously given me three limited edition signed prints to raffle off to help raise funds to get me there!
Thanks Dad :D
