firm & tone 01. great aloha run (new PR).

it's become a tradition (three years in the making), getting together with friends on president's day for the 8.15 mile great aloha run.

this year, i was just coming off a month-long break from running and had only put in a few 2-3 mile runs before the race, so it was a good test of my current fitness level. i won't get into a lengthy race recap but will say that i was able to maintain a steady pace, run the entire course [walking only through the water stations], and gain a new PR (personal record) for this race.

with an official time of 1:36:10, i shaved off 14 minutes from last year's time. some people assumed that this might be easy after running a marathon. i wouldn't say it was easy, rather it was a comfortable distance. i will admit that it felt great seeing the results of my year of running.

prepped and ready for the early morning wake-up call.
shuffling like cattle to get to the start.
to the finish line.
crossing the finish line.
inside the stadium. 
post-race bloody ceasars.

  5. That's super interesting that running a marathon and participating in this race wasn't a 'breeze' like I automatically assumed (guilty of making assumptions). But the cool thing is you're still maintaining your endurance level. You totally ROCK boo!!!
