Time to get a bit of Maunawili practice in and start building in some distance. Meeting place is the Pali Lookout parking area. Per Cheryl, if you don't have water, you don't get to go. Check out the race requirements for carrying water and get used to it. There will be water at the Waimanalo end.
Meeting time: 5:45 a.m. Pali Lookout. If you are only going one way, arrange a carpool on your own for a ride back.
