    I hope you guys had fun today. It was a little rainy at Bayfront, but it stopped right before we started running. Here's proof that I wasn't just wimping out. Next for me is probably a 10K or half marathon. Whichever race comes first. See you guys next weekend hopefully.
    5K = 22:39. 44th overall and 10th in my age group. Not bad for my very first race.

    Good climb today! Weather Gods gave us a reprieve as it was iffy if we were going or not. Not a drop fell on us during the climb, only started drizzling at the top while we were getting ready for the downhill. Awesome!
    Mazu, Aikane, no worries, that place is always there. Even after work can go do a nice climb, since it's nearby.
    Mazu, great job on the run! I've NEVER done a 5K, 10K, or ANY running event, but am doing my first run event at the Volcano 1/2 Marathon in 3 weeks. I got challenged to do the 1/2 marathon by a good friend who is an awesome runner, and in turn she said she'd come do ANY of my bike rides. So short notice training, just trying to get a good base and will be doing run/walk cycles just to finish.

    A 1/2 Marathon on short notice is ballsy. Good Luck! You can do it! Just remember to hydrate for a whole week before race day. Trying to hydrate the day before won't really do you good. You gotta drink lots of water to prepare for a 1/2 marathon. Plus the 4000+ altitude of Volcano will really work your cardio because of the thinner and drier air. I wouldn't mind joining you, but I won't be around that weekend.

    That's okay. I wasn't going to make it. I was still at the doctor's office at 4:30. So I ended up running 6.2 miles today when i finally got home. I'm itching to ride though.

    Dang, 6.2!
    Next week I start bumping up to do my long runs.
    Went surf today instead, gave the legs a little rest, tomorrow run at school with the kids.

    Hey 6.2 miles is about half of a half marathon, which is 13.1 miles. I still give you lots of credit to be doing a half marathon with very little training. Just go at your own pace and you'll be fine.

    Thanks for all the tips and encouragement. At first I was like I'm nuts to do this as. I know it's not a walk in the park, but then my other side was seething and the hell I was going to let her think that mt. biking is nothing compared to her 1/2 marathon, LOL! She told me she'd go on ANY of my bike rides if I finish the 1/2 marathon. So my stubborness kicked in, or more my "Sure thing, let's see you handle (put kick ass trail with huge hill climb here) and make it out unscathed". Truth is a lot of people here have a misconception what mt. biking is. They picture a nice dirt road through the forest or along the coast like Paradise Park la dee da dee da ride. Take them to Kulani and they wouldn't make it a hundred feet without dabbing, freaking out, or hike a biking. Take them to Waterfalls, Escape Road, or Kalopa and they wouldn't even fathom climbing those hills on a bike, let alone hike it. Two different disciplines, two different muscle groups, like apples to oranges. I love this friend, she's a great person, but I want to stick it to her that yeah, mt. biking is not that easy either, so that's been my driving force on finishing the 1/2 marathon. Who knows, as she said, I might get the road running bug! And I'm actually begining to like it a bit, so we'll see.
    But hey, there's lots more places to ride out there! Plus nothing beats bombing a single track, hitting a berm, pumping some humps, airing some jumps, and flowing dirty!!

    Aikane, LOL!
    Remember, I Filipino, they just like the EverReady Bunny, LOL!
    But yeah, I did cut down my surfing because of the time I need put on the road. Only makes me surf harder when I get back to it. Biking I can do, cross train, plus keeps up the cardio.
    Try see if Trdspecialutzcoma wants put together a ride this weekend. He was saying Flume Road, which is local and fun ride. I'm out as I have to go down Ka'u.

    Anybody up for hitting Kulani Sat. afternoon? I was there this morning and it was half way decent, as long as it doesn't come down hard in the next 24 hrs, should be epic. I have to work Sat but figure to hit the trail around 4:30, weather permitting.

    I'm a maybe....again. I work tomorrow too, but I'm coming off a 22.5 hour workday today. I'm tired. If the weather is nice I wouldn't mind hitting up Kulani even if I am tired.

    22.5 hours! Damn, that's one of the reasons I denied a job there. Well if you're down for a ride, I'll be there regardless.

    I was just happy that the night was beautiful. We were working out in Ookala. It was cool, clear, and the job went smooth too. Anyways, I'm down to ride. I should see you there.

    Maz, I usually park inside just before the quarry. Just have to load the bike and I'm off.

    Had a good afterwork ride this afternoon, trail conditions were very good. Mazu showed improvement, considering this was only his second time at Kulani.

    Thanks for letting me join you on the trail. I had some highs and lows today. At times I felt like I was doing good and at other times I struggled. Still had fun though. It's a thrill for me when I hit the right line and get through the obstacles unscathed.

    Here's a pic of Aikane leading the way.
