Hana Relay 2009 Was a Blast!

That's me running the Leg 4 of Hana Relay :)

Yes, that's me running on Maliko Gulch

“I heard Hana Relay is fun, but I didn’t know it was THIS FUN!” said one of our teammates at the Hana Relay.  Then she added “THIS IS SO MUCH FUN!”.  I have to agree, it was so much fun. I like how Eric puts in his blog when he said “If Nike’s Run Hit Remix is “more fun than run” and Disneyland’s Half Marathon is the “happiest race on earth”, then I am totally at a loss for how to describe the wacky and highly spirited relay that takes place on the infamous 52 mile long road to Hana.”  Yes, it  is one of a kind. The winding roads and uphills were narly,  but the very supportive crowd, the aloha spirit and the awesome scenery made it so worth it to run this relay!

I started creating the blog post above, but this couple days after the relay had been very busy I could not find the time to continue this post I started so I am just going to upload more photos below, in addition to what I previously uploaded on the other post (click here to see those photos).

By the way, running the Hana Relay  worked for me.  For other “Works For Me Wednesday, visit “We Are That Family”.

    YOU DID IT!!! Great achievement. I bet your brother is really proud of you! The costumes were hilarious, and the scenery was spectacular. You all must be the envy of the running world. ( I wouldn’t know!)

    Congratulations, Liza!
