Kona Polls on the MarkAllenCoaching Facebook Page

To honor the grand legacy of the Hawaii IRONMAN World Championships, I have been posting MarkAllenCoaching Kona polls daily on the MarkAllenCoaching Facebook page.  Each poll poses a question related to the IRONMAN in Kona. Some are historical questions that elicit an opinion on your part, others ask what you think will happen this year and into the future. It's a chance for everyone to vote on some very provocative questions! Check those out.

I will also be posting daily insights into all things IRONMAN direct from Kona. Today, Monday October 3rd, there's a special question related to a key piece of the legacy in triathlons. It's going to be intriguing and thought provoking. You'll get to give your guess on what it is. The first person to get the right answer will receive some pretty exciting prizes!
