I had little choice but to keep it on the asphalt during my time on the Big Island (except for Mana Rd). Tuesday was what it always will be, good fellowship among runners. Running just wouldn’t be the same without beer. The highlight had to be my little adventure on Mana Rd. The scenery is one of a kind; Mauna Kea standing tall over endless bright green pasture land under a bright blue sky. The weather was a bit tough to deal with. Changing winds and cloud shifts had me constantly taking off and putting on my jacket. It was a treat to run in the mist at the higher elevation. I’ve never run in such a peaceful place. Perhaps one day I’ll be brave enough to run the 47 mile point-to-point route from Mauna Kea Access Rd. to Waimea. One day.
