Saturday Training 10-27-07 “Peacock Preview”

Aloha Athletes !

It’s always a special occasion when we make it out to Peacock Flats. All the grumbling and whining about the long drive (which is never as long as we thought)seems to disappear after we’ve made that first big climb up Kalia or certainly by the time we’ve looked out over the beautiful vistas. But since this is serious training time, you’ll need to keep focused on the task at hand and leave sightseeing for another day. After all, we will be returning on Nov. 17 far a race-pace 50 mile training run. But for now, just show up at 6:50 am, at the parking lot behind the control tower at Dillingham airfield, this Saturday Oct. 27 with a MINIMUM of 70 ounces of water (much more if you drink a lot), sunscreen, electrolytes, a hat or cap, bars, bloks, gels, sunglasses and trail food. Please prepare for hotter and dryer conditions than we are used to on the Tantalus trails. Don
