Saturday Training: Ho’omaluhia Botanical Garden to Pali Lookout plus Don’s Badwater Send-Off

This week we have something a bit different planned. We know some people are training for Volcano and we know others are just training to get miles in. We also have Don Fallis heading out to Badwater very soon. Have you noticed the weather in that part of country? Temperatures are approaching 130F right now. HOT

Saturday Training 7-7-07 "The Garden to Pali Lookout" repeats (Plus Don’s Badwater Send-Off Potluck 10:00 a.m.)

With only a few weeks before the Volcano Marathon, we have scheduled
this training run with that particular race in mind.

Meeting time: 5:50 am

Starting time: 6:00 am

Meeting place: Entrance to Hoomaluhia Botanical Garden in Kaneohe

Training: Out and back repeats from the entrance to Hoomaluhia
Botanical Garden, up past Koolau Golf Course, under Pali Hwy. and up to
Pali Lookout, and return.

Distance: 9.6 miles per loop

Duration: 1:45 to 2 hours per loop (ave.)

Bring: Plenty of water and sports drink to last the duration (and
also trail food and snacks), as no stash will be provided. Reminder: It
will be HOT !!

Remember we park in the neighborhood so please be quiet early in the morning.

After we train, at 10:00 a.m. we will be having a potluck for Don at the end of the botanical garden by the equestrian area. So, yes, we are moving our cars into the park after we train. Please bring something yummy to eat and share with others, a chair, and let’s send Don off to Badwater with lots of Aloha.
