Kat Matthews was ready to have an awesome day at her first Kona after an amazing year that included her successful Sub-8 endeavor and a 2nd place finish at the Ironman World Championship in St George. But everything changed a few days ago when a driver steered into her path during a training ride in Texas. Despite her injuries, Kat is here in Kona, staying strong, and chatted with us about how she’s feeling.
