Saturday Training: 7-16-05

This past Saturday we had a large group show up for the run from the entrance of Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden to Waimanalo and back. Six runners did the full 30 miles and many others did portions of it. The day started off a bit wet with some rain or as only Nick could say "a bit wet under foot."

Saturday Training: 7-16-05 Pali Lookout to Nature Center and back to the Pali Lookout.

We will run down the Pali and old Pali Road to Jackass Ginger in Nuuanu. From here we will go via trails back to the Nature Center. We plan on taking one route to the Nature Center and a slightly different one on the way back to Nuuanu. Return will again be by the Old Pali Road and Pali to the Lookout.

Total Distance: 20 + miles

Meet Time: 5:50 a.m. at the Pali Lookout

Start Time: 6:00 a.m.

Alternative or Shorter Distance Option: 8:45 a.m. to 9:00 a.m. Meet us at the Nature Center Bathroom Area. Run with us back to the Pali Lookout or any of the route back and return to the Nature Center on your own.

Total Time: 6 to 7+ hours.

Remember to bring plenty of fluids (water or sports drink) as it is hot and humid now. Don’t forget your electrolytes and whatever nutrition you will need along the way.

Anyone want to volunteer to drop aid at the Nature Center? Please let me know if you are interested in doing this.
