And we're off at 5:30am

 

 

 

 

 

Have to run Hawaii marathons early to get a head start on the heat

 

 

Sunrise

 

 

lst aid station

 

 

Open stretches at the start, no cover along the highway

 

 

No tropical jungle on this marathon, for that, sign up for the Hilo Marathon on the Big Island

 

 

Reminds me of the Southwest of mainland USA

 

 

 

 

Another aid station

 

 

It's dry on this side of Maui at this time of year - September

 

 

Major turn here on course towards the ocean and eventually Lahaina

 

 

Long stretches of dry brush with ocean in distance

 

 

 

8 mile mark

 

 

 

Then you reach the ocean!

 

Keep on truckin'
