Came, Saw & Kona-ed

The deed is done! Well, my deed is done.
I am now in Kailua-Kona, and it is about 26 hours since I completed the Ironman World Championships. I am sore; nothing unusual. It just reminds me of my mortality, and how my body is responding to the last seven months of training.

It was my best performance, but it was one of my best races. This is Kona. It is the holy grail of long-distance triathlons.
 My picture appeared on the website (during my bike check-in).
Thank you all for your well wishes. I am appreciative of my family, friends, sponsors and fraternity for their support. I walk with, personal pride, my achievement. I am thankful for my luck, appreciative of the support I got, and honored for the opportunity. Despite of my hard day, I would do it all over again - once I recover. I may just get another shot at the special lottery at the Ironman New Zealand 2014.

I will write an exhaustive report soon of my experiences.
