I’ll be writing a quick recap of The Hapalua in a little bit – at the moment I have come down with a cold, and am feeling sorry for myself. I really just wanted to put this up. I’ll probably need to update it too, to add in my splits for the Hapalua. I’m pretty disappointed with how I ran. Well, maybe I’m more disappointed with how I trained – I was definitely under trained, and really need to focus on completing long runs.
Well. It happens. You have good intentions to do something, then it fails.
I went to Kauai last week with my husband, and didn’t fit in my 3 mile runs. Then I got sick. So. Yea. That whole 3 mile a day for the month didn’t really work out. And I’m still sick.
I’ve been surfing. I did go on a couple of runs, and am planning on running tonight. I’ve done a teeny bit of weight training – but nothing really to write about.
My training for the Hapalua Half Marathon has been a complete flop. But you know what? I’m going to continue on, hope for the best. We will see how it goes. If I can manage a sub 2 hour half marathon, great, if not – it will be a good day for a run!

I don’t even know where to start. What an amazing race.
Ugh. This is a not good before and after. And it’s not of my body. I’m not sure what to think of all of this. But, let me write it all down and try to figure it out.
On Sunday I ran the Mizuno Val Nolasco Half Marathon. It is part of the Race Readiness Series for the Honolulu Marathon. I really needed an excuse to get out the door and go and run. I also wanted to add in a few miles to make it to 16 miles. (Which I ended up doing).
The route was exactly the same as the Hibiscus Half Marathon I completed about a year and a half ago. This is my second fastest half marathon. So, I decided to compare the two. And ugh. Maybe I shouldn’t have. I’m now feeling pretty disappointed with myself and pretty darn slow. Continue reading
It’s been a week and a half since I ran the Portland Marathon. I was meant to update this blog sooner, but you know, life gets in the way.
Wow. Only a week and a half. It feels so much longer than that. Continue reading
I have a love/hate relationship with Instagram. I love that it can be so motivating, I love the pretty pictures. I hate the fact that you compare yourself with EVERYONE. I have serious doubts about my upcoming marathons. I mean, I have Portland that is 24 days away. What the…? How did that happen?! Continue reading
Ergh. I did not want to do this run. Naturally, that’s a lie. I wanted to do this run. I got dressed, went out, turned on my watch. I was ready to go. Then I started running. Continue reading
