For those of you in Kona, here are some Newton activities and events to check out:
Defending World Champion Craig Alexander will be on hand signing autographs on Tues., Wed., and Thurs. afternoons.
Newton Booth - located at St Michael's on Allii Dr.
On Tues., from 6-7 pm Craig and Natascha Badmann will sign autographs at the booth
On Wed,. from 3-4 pm Michellie Jones will sign autographs
We're also creating a special commemorative book from the 2009 Ironman World Championships and we're asking all of the Newton tribe to come and sign the book. We're hoping to get photos and signatures from everyone wearing Newtons in the race!
For those of you at home, be sure to go to Itunes and download the Crowie Backstage App for your Iphone. Very cool behind the scenes photos, updates and insight on Crowie's training and racing.
