So, as everyone went back to their work areas and offices to ponder life without a job, I went back to my office and started planning a trip to Hawaii. And why go somewhere without a race being involved?
I have been to 49 states. The only one I have not visited is Hawaii. I really want to go there.
The Kona Marathon is on June 28. The headquarter hotel's rate is $130 per night. It looks awesome. The race starts and ends at the hotel.
The race is apparently hard, hilly and hot. I had considered trying to run the full 26.2, but probably this isn't the good choice for a first and probably only in my lifetime marathon.
But I could still do a half.
Has anyone done this race?
Is there any hope for me? I hardly even trained for P.F. Chang's and swore it would be my last long distance event... but I had so much fun, it really left me wanting to do more races.
My cold is about 80% gone, and I can go out and run tomorrow (if we don't get too much snow). I am totally uninjured at this point since I have run only once since January 18.
I want to go to Hawaii! Any thoughts?
