We took to the streets yesterday, camera in hand, so we can share some of the many sights of the 2011 Ironman Championship — as if all the lean, buffed bodies in town aren’t enough to signal this year’s event is here, these banners, signs and artwork confirm it! Race day is Saturday, October 8 starting with the 2+ mile swim, followed by the 110+ bike, and finishing with the marathon length run. The official action begins this evening with the “Parade of Nations” along Ali’i Drive. All week long we’re hosting “Breakfast with Bob”, the online video talk show, featuring elite athletes, including Aussie defending champion Craig Alexander who is going for his third consecutive win this year! “Aussie, Aussie, Aussie”! Check out the videos on Triathlon.Competitor. com and follow every day for an insider’s look at the action.

In the meantime, enjoy these snaps while we kick back and enjoy some of Chef’s ono fish tacos for lunch at Huggo’s on the Rocks!
