Kona Champion speeches

slickfins_Ryanslickfins_Ryan Member, Rooster Endurance Member
Anyone hear the speeches at the banquet last night that wasn’t there? If you can find it, watch daniela’s. It was pretty great. She even showed emotion at one point (we assumed at the part on her printout that read: [SHOW EMOTION HERE]. She talked about how she was so close to pulling out of the race because of how much pain she was in from the jellyfish, and how incredible it was that she was able to push through the pain and come out where she did. I do wish she was honest though about how she was going to return to the ocean that night with a flashlight and a knife in her mouth to hunt the family of the jellyfish that stung her. I’m planning to photoshop this visual soon.

Also, Patrick Lange said that Mark Allen told him not to write a speech, but to speak from he heart. I’ve never spoken from the heart in German, but I bet it would go about as well as Patrick Lange’s speech from the heart in English went. Buddy, write some shit down next time.

    I'm so sick of hearing about the fucking jellyfish. For those of you who've never been stung, it's slightly more painful and long-lasting than a bee sting. Unless you have an allergic reactions, you're fine in an hour.

    I was stung in the ankle by a bee (I assume?) in the first minute of the bike during a triathlon one year. It hurt a lot for yeah, about a minute, but I had no issues finishing the race.

    Thank you! She's making it out like she got stung by a man o war. I'm far from world class and have been stung during races a couple times, and it slowed me down less. I'm thinking she had a shitty swim and maybe saw a jellyfish. Crazy unlikely she was swimming in a pack and was the only one hit if she were stung.

    Man! I was going to ask what kind of jellyfish live in Hawaii that getting stung once was a huge issue.

    I had a race in the St. Mary’s river off the Potomac and I swear to god it was like that scene in Finding Nemo when they go through the jellyfish feilds. Thankfully I was covered in Sea Safe jellyfish repellant. I did miss a couple places on my chin, back of my knees and under my watch. But I’ll tell you, if you have never put your hand in a jellyfish it is quite like sticking your hand in a bowl of angel hair pasta. Thought my stroke was going to be wreked as I was shaking my hand out of jellyfish, but it helped me swim much faster to get the fuk out of there.

    It's mostly box jellies in Hawaii, especially on the west side of the islands. Outbreaks are fairly predictable based on the last full moon, and last week would not have been an outbreak week. I got stung once last week (over the course of 7 swims), which is pretty average. It burned for a couple minutes, I finished my swim no problem, and I didn't do any interviews about it.

    There have been a ton of man-o-wars around Oahu lately and I did see someone post a picture of a dead one from Kona last week. It happened while she was wading in the water before the start, so I doubt a large man-o-war came through the field and only stung her.

    Ohmygod that's terrifying and now I will have nightmares about that.

    Every article on ST...

    "Back when I ran the bike count."

    "Back when I designed bikes."

    "Back before I had to pretend to respect women."

    It's worse than Webstey's constant reminders that he once met Simon Whitfield.

    Or that he can stroke his Rooster Endurance cock at work whenever he wants.

    Okay maybe he just admitted to it once and I keep bringing it up out of sheer unadulterated envy.

    Hey, don't sell me short - nothing is worse than those constant reminders. Did I mention that I babysat his cats one time and fixed his router in exchange for toast?

    There is no way I'm wading through that thread to find Scott's comment, there's not enough Space Food Cream Team on Untappd http://untp.beer/JYrx to make that a tolerable experience

    I would have done the bike count this year but i was selling semi conductors to cannibals in Sri Lanka.

    That, and i got run over by a bus this year.

    Slowman, can we make this thread a sticky?

    Speaking of sticky, my underoos are soiled, bye tri gang!
