Mahalo nui loa: Ran my first ultra

Thank you, for the inspiration.  Thursday night, I knocked out a 50km run, from Waipahu up to Schofield Barracks and up Kolekole pass, before heading home. 

I would not have even considered it without having spent the year reading your tales and talking story at the events and random encounters out there on the trails.  I'm still on track for 2010 miles in 2010, but I'll be back in Iraq for another go at things there when you all are doing the next HURT100. I still have my eye on a run up the Schofield-Waikane Trail — maybe that'll be a Halloween treat, after the Gunstock 1/2.
