Team Huggo's Went to the Streets of Kailua-Kona...
Everything Ironman can be found at the official Ironman Merchandise Tent located behind the King Kamehameha Beach Hotel.
Team Huggo’s went to the streets of Kailua-Kona today to capture the color and character of the 2012 Ironman World Championship. Cameras in hand, we captured these images for those of you who aren’t here this week to see and experience this international sporting event!
Among the items for purchase inside the tent, the official 2012 Ironman World Championship artwork by Hawaii Island artist Cindy Coats.
Lining up to buy...do these Ironmen and women have the endurance to wait?!
