Happy New Year and Weekend Running

Aloha Athletes,

Lots going on as we head into the last weekend of 2011. I hope you have met all of your goals and are already thinking about what you want to achieve in 2012. I know many of us have a very specific goal for the weekend of January 14th and 15th. 

I have not heard of any specific training plans for the weekend though I know there will be a bunch of people trying to get some last minute panic training in. My suggestion, back it off a notch. With just two weeks before the big race, now is not the time to do something that might cause you to injure yourself. Work on any last minute gear and nutrition issues and start thinking a bit about drop bags and race strategy. 

We got out for an early morning reverse Trek loop this morning and the trails have definitely dried out considerably over the last several days. Also Na Ala Hele has started working on certain parts of the course clearing and spraying. Let's hope they are able to spend a lot of time out there.

Post what you are doing in the comments below and hopefully we will see you out there. 

Have a safe New Year's Eve and best year ever for 2012!

Aloha, Bob
