Saturday Training 7-23-11: Maunawili Out & Back Practice

Aloha Athletes,

Lots of opportunities for running these days with a group. I can remember when we would round up 3-4 people or maybe half a dozen for the Saturday training run. You have Saturday choices, Sunday choices and probably pretty soon, night or evening choices as people start getting into HURT training. 

I was upset to hear about a truck getting broke into last week. Please don't leave anything of value in your truck. These same crack-heads are busting into vehicles from Kailua to Sandy Beach. 

This Saturday, we are heading back up to the Pali Lookout and running the Maunawili trail in preparation for that little run with the pigs coming up in August.

Meeting time is 5:45 a.m. Again, there will be water at the Waimanalo end but you need to carry at least 40 ounces with you. That is a race requirement this year as every year runners get dehydrated during this race. If you are new to running trails here, using a good electrolyte is important as well. Talk to some of the more experienced HURT runners and they will share their knowledge with you about what works. 

No excuses, get out there and run. 

Aloha, Bob

  1. I’m back @ Peacock this Saturday -need the climbs – if anyone would like to join me for a loop, I would love the company!

  2. Mind some more company? I haven’t made it out to Peacock yet mostly just HURT trails and other town spots. Usually do my runs alone but would love to meet some other trail runners and run a new trail : ]

  3. My plan is to start at Long Road @ 6am and run a full loop (28 miles) with a finish around noon. No sight seeing tour – but we can always divide and conquer.

  4. Thanks, I appreciate the reply and that sounds great! I will be there, if you decide to do your own thing understand otherwise looking forward to the run :]

  5. Hi Sue this is Andres. Question. Do you need some kind of permit to get into the trails at Peacock? I been told is military and you need a permit, so I never tried making it there but will love to go.Hopefully, I will be able to join the hurt team when a run is scheduled thanks 🙂
