Maui Oceanfront Marathon Recap

Six days post-race and I should get organized and put together a Maui Oceanfront Marathon Recap, especially now that we are back on the mainland.  The warm Hawaiian air, blue seas, and happy hours have dulled the mostly painful details of marathon number six, but I took good notes 🙂  If you read my brief summary from Monday, you already… Read More »
