Ironman Kona: Big-Day Buzz Is Building

Day two (Wednesday) saw its share of stars, more sweat and internationally applicable smiles.

TEAM CLIF BAR at Kona 7

Holding up at Clif Bar base camp (here on the south side of Ali'i Drive) for the whole of the day turned out to be the right move. Why leave when you have the likes of Chris McCormack running through your front yard (and stopping by for a casual hello), and Linsey Corbin (and hubby) popping by for both an interview AND to share some of her private label, 'Montana Made Ale'?

TEAM CLIF BAR at Ironman Kona: An Afternoon on Alii Drive

As I'm writing, it's Tuesday evening, October 5th. Just got to see another beautiful Kona sunset. Spent a good chunk of the afternoon sampling the new CLIF SHOT Energy Gel, SHOT Electrolyte Drink, Margarita SHOT BLOKS, and a bevy of other Clif Bar goods to folks getting their training miles in on Alii. Sampling went great. The new SHOT Gel was -- as expected -- very well received.

The Road to Kona with Chris McCormack: Part 2 - Overcoming the Odds

Last week you saw the first of a three-part video series that goes behind the scenes with world-class TEAM CLIF BAR triathlete Chris McCormack. Chris has won a lot of races, but some of the experts said he'd never win Ironman Hawaii. As a kid, Chris dreamed of victory in Kona. As a world class triathlete, he overcame the odds and celebrated a very special win on Ali'i Drive.
