Simon Ward’s ‘100 Day to Kona’ continues

Set for Saturday 14th October, the 2017 IRONMAN World Championships in Kona is fast approaching. A frequent visitor to the island over the years through work, Simon will be racing for the first time this year.

His preparations for the event have involved more than just a pure focus on absolute performance. Life – in particular the recent death of his best friend – put lots of things into perspective, and lead to a recent ‘road trip’ in the USA.

The best preparation for an Ironman? Almost certainly not – but Simon explains why he is content with his decision
