John VanSlyke’s wife, Stacey, and their three children eagerly watch as he returns from the early morning swim at Dig Me Pier.
Jack is the youngest of the trio and he can’t wait to join his dad in the sport of Triathlon.
“Instead of playing hide and seek or tag, my kids love to practice transitions in the backyard, they ‘play triathlon’ quite often” said Stacey.
This is John’s third race in Kona and he claims it will be his last, but his family and friends are doubtful. “We’ll believe it when we see it,” said Stacey.
