Spreading the Aloha

Aloha Athletes !

One of the many nice things about the ultrarunning community is opening their homes, condos and apartments to runners from far away, especially during races. Most any of us that have traveled to the mainland or to Canada have been offered a place to stay during 100 mile races. I've personally known several local ultrarunners who do this every year for people coming for the HURT 100. Some names that come to mind are Cheryl, John & PJ, Mike & Patricia, Heather and I, Vernon & Evie, Bill & Punkin and I'm sure there are others. So, if you have an extra bed, or even a comfy couch available for a fellow ultrarunner to lay his/her weary head please e-mail me and I'll do my best to find a needy runner. The 2009 race dates are January 17-18, so most will need something around January 14-19, 2009, depending on their length of stay. I do know of one runner and his wife who plan to be here for 2 weeks, to get some heat training. My e-mail address is: expo@hawaii.rr.com or you can call me at work: 247-4144  Don
