My Six Miler

July 28, 2010

As most of you know I am training for a marathon.  Beth is my trainer and she has created a training plan just for me.  Yeah!  I am continuing to follow my training plan while in Hawaii and I am loving it.  Today I ran six miles through Lahaina.  Running while on vacation is a great way to get to know the area.  I know where restaurants and historical sites are located.  A bonus when you are hungry or want to sight see.  The best thing that has come out of these vacation runs is that I am running without my ipod.  I am enjoying the act of running.  I am able to experience Lahaina without traffic, tourists and the regular hustle and bustle of the town.  There are mango trees, carambola trees and local fishermen.  I can hear the ocean, listen to my body and truly experience my surroundings.  I will miss these Maui training runs when we leave.  I have no doubt memories of these runs will carry me through Colorado runs.  Maybe even a marathon.

I took some pictures along my route today.  I decided to explore on this run and came across an old cemetery and a temple.  Yet another bonus of running…
