Saturday Training, 10-7-06: HURT Loop, Starting at Manoa

With the Windward Half Marathon over, we can focus back on the trails. This Saturday we are planning on running a complete HURT loop starting in Manoa and going over to Nuuanu and then running to the Nature Center and finishing back in Manoa at Paradise Park. Yes, 20 miles of trail!! If you don’t know the full HURT course yet, this will be a good time to see/learn it.

Also, Cheryl and Mike are planning on a Monday (10-9-06) training run. Some people have the day off since it is Columbus Day. They will be running from Manoa to Nuuanu and back and will be starting at 6:00 a.m. from the usual place in Manoa.
