Running Toward a New Year



Sometimes it's good to get away to look at things with a new perspective. Running can get a little routine, even monotonous at times.  The last week of the year was a good one for me on this front, spent on the island of Oahu with my extended family to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday.  What a great time!  Miss Hawaii showed up and performed a very cool hula dance at the birthday party.

While here I managed several runs, a few with family, and one interval session to the top of Diamondhead four times! Oahu is the home of the HawaiiH.U.R.T. 100, thought to be the toughest 100 mile race in the USA.  One day!....?

Happy new year all!

I will be running the HURT in 2 weeks. That race is ridiculous. Last time I ran it I was praying for death the last 50 miles.

The course is only 2 miles from the Honolulu. You should get on the trail while you are out there. It is a fun one.

the truth is, I was too busy to jump on the H.U.R.T. trail while in Hawaii. not to worry, I'll be back! Hone, good luck on the 15th! Put it in the book!
