Kona 2015, our emotions, a very personal perspective
The two weeks here on the Big Island have been hard work for Kjell and myself. Race day was another huge enterprise for us. You may not understand, but I didn’t feel of going there at all. Of course, I did go and overcame my voice inside.
I spent hours on the highway with the bike, two Gopros and and my Sony camera. Meanwhile Kjell fought his way through to the finish line. I got toasted slowly slowly in the energy lab while Kjell got squeezed among the crowds.
And then, what usually happens, if the results of the guys you are with for so many years, don’t manage to perform the way they wanted, you fall into a certain lethargic way of being. No endorphins, no adrenalin is released anymore. Your tank that hasn’t been refueled quite well before the race gets completely depleted.
Kjell and I finished our job, as we are very disciplined persons, but the feeling after was shallow. And I was confirmed in my feeling that things wouldn’t work out the way we hoped.
Okay, let’s stop to develop on the October blues mood and look forward. Here is our race day in pictures. Enjoy!
