For the record, going to Hawai’i this week does not mean I get to go on hiatus from my marathon training.
J and I packed up our running shoes (crammed, for me) into our carry-on suitcases. I’m ready for the hikes to Diamond Head and the Manoa Falls Trail. Week 1, Week 1 (revisited, because I didn’t feel I gave it a worthy attempt), and Week 2 of training have really elevated my running endurance. I’d hate to have all of that energy come to a crashing halt when I return; most definitely heavier from all of the shaved ice, spam musubi, kalua pork, baked goodies, and poke sloshing around in my stomach.
I know folks think I’m crazy for wanting to run and be active on our “vacation.” I think I’m a little crazy that I’m looking forward to it! After all, if you’re going to be running, what better place in the world to do so than on Waikiki Beach during sunrise? My thoughts exactly.
Aloha! I will return with fitness, food, and photography stories!
