Couldnt sleep this fine morning so went on jaunt through the misty neighborhood streets around Holliday at 6am.  Nobody else out strangely.  Was nice to stretch the legs before busting on a trip to Hawaii.  right butt cheek starting to hurt again.  not sure what brings this on.  Mozzer, your Yazmin Bleeth is in the mail.

Great to be living in Hawaii for a few days.  Did an early am trail run with Brother Nick around the Keana State park point on the tip of the West Coast and around to the North Shore side.  the run was coastline with great views out over the ocean and inland mountain range.  The area we were in is apparently the highest area for car breakins, and there are miles of shanty town homeless along the beaches leading up to the area.

I call this the poison gas run because we got into some chemical plant trail run near the hotel where the air smelled and tasted like death was coming. Then had a nice run up the frontage of the beach amidst the palms and ocean. Nice. avg 8:45 or so.

How great is Hawaii?  Ran the Aiea Loop trail with the brother.  Fantastic and beautiful trail and jungle and spectacular views.  Almost lost Nick over the side again.  Mozzer, next time you need to be here.  Had some decent ups and downs.  Sweating like a pig.  Actually the terrain made you feel like you were running on one of the pig trails right out of Lost.

Started this one out with a 2. 5 hour car ride in traffic.  Lousy.  However the Maunawili Trail was worth it.  We ran the first two miles in stunning jungle.  next 2 was basically  a side trail to the Mauniwili Falls.  Waterfall nothing special but the ridgeline trail views coming back with the scalloped Jurrasic Park mountains shooting up in the mist was awesome.  Maybe the most beautiful outdoor site I have ever seen.  Took a few headshots with overlying canopy branches and a few near death stumbles but it was 5 star.  Back to the cold on Saturday
