Taking a brief diversion to participate in The Daily Post Photo Challenge.  The theme this week is Vibrant, and having just got back from Maui, I have a few options to add some color in the midst of winter. We paid a visit to the awesome Maui Ocean Center in Ma’alaea Bay on our recent vacation and enjoyed… Read More »

Maui Oceanfront Marathon Final Thoughts

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 »

Maui Oceanfront Marathon Training Wrap

One thousand miles!

Or 1609.34 kilometers for my metric visitors…I wouldn’t normally write a post about just a single training run, but, given the relatively late start to my race training cycles, I wasn’t sure I would make the 4 digit milestone this year.  Today, 5.7 miles into the long run, I crossed the 1000 mile mark so paused for… Read More »

Thanks for taking the time to stop by to check out my site and to read my ramblings.  The support and encouragement that I have got from the blogging community has… Read More »

Maui Oceanfront Training Week 6

Maui Oceanfront Training and preparation continued last week after the Thanksgiving break.  Due to a bit of a website glitch and some horrendous commuting this week in the stormy and wet Pacific Northwest, last week’s training summary is a bit behind so I’ll keep it brief. As I mentioned, the past couple of weeks has… Read More »
