Island-style, country living

 

 

 

 

Back to sleep

 

 

 

Wonderful local folks cheer us on

 

 

 

I love Italian Cypress!!!!  So did Vincent VanGogh

 

 

 

 

There'll be other cute dogs along the route that are also taking in the marathon sights

 

 

 

 

Electronic check in at 9 miles

Another family portrait

 

 

 

Water spray if you want one

 

 

 

Simply water or on the rocks?

 

 

 

Nice sense of design

 

 

 

Yuck, more runners... where's the sheep?

 

 

 

Now flat or declining- and still nice and cool

 

 

 

Neighbors

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"Live Life To The Fullest" - include a marathon!

 

 

 

Kauai is recognized as one of the most scenic American marathons

 

 

 

Did they drum up the rain showers?

 

 

 

Palm grove

 

 

 

Here's where we divide the roosters from the hens

 

 

 

Suddenly the road is not as populated by runners

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I'm not even half way home and here comes the leader of the pack; will finish with a 2:24 or so - fantastic with all these hills
(about 50 times more hilly than the Honolulu Marathon, in my opinion)

 

 

 

Was 2nd at the moment

 

 

 

Another long incline upwards to Koloa ridges

 

 

 

Strong lst woman, finished I believe 5th overall; that's what a sub-6 minute mile looks like.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even dozen going upwards

 

 

 

 

 

KEEP ON RUNNING
