October 14, 2012 Huggo’s was closed Sunday evening for the traditional post-Ironman World Championship party sponsored by K-Swiss — we look forward to welcoming you for dinner again beginning Monday — tonight!

In the meantime, Team Huggo’s congratulates all participants and finishers in this year’s race. You’re amazing!

Aussie Pete Jacobs captured this year's title. Here he is celebrating victory at the finish line!

A special shout out to the 2012 Champion Pete Jacobs and his wife Jaimielle who we had the pleasure of spending time with at Huggo’s early last week when Pete was a featured guest on the Breakfast with Bob show, streaming live from our lanai all week long! They stopped by again on post-race Sunday and took the time for a photo opp with Eric — the lead-in photo above for this post.

We’re already looking forward to the 2013 Ironman World Championship — we’ll be here to welcome you all back!
