Saturday Training 7-26-08 "Peacock Flats"

Aloha Athletes !

For the few of us who will not be making it over to the Big Island for this Saturday's Volcano Marathon, we will have a close second choice, Peacock Flats. Although you will have several route options at Peacock, a few of us plan to do a recent route popular with Huffer and Larry, which goes up Kealia Trail and the climb up the long jeep road, but takes a left to the intersection and then follows clockwise along the beautiful Kuaokala (ridge) Trail, returning down Kealia. Depending on the exact route, this is about 14 miles. However, you have other options and mileages, and you can always do repeats.

Start time will be promptly at 6:00 am at the parking lot behind Dillingham airfield. Since it will likely be hot, humid and stash limited, please plan to carry "more" fluids than you think you will need to cover the duration of the route you plan. Also, please carry plenty of electrolytes. It should be a small but fun group. See ya there !  Don

Ha ha, don't believe the Huffer. If he shows up sick, we may have a chance of staying with him, at least until the end of the hills. After that, just look for his tracks because the dust will have settled by then.

If you plan on running with Larry bring your "A" game cuz brother don't mess around. I'm thinking of calling in sick cuz this hombre can't keep up. Best of luck to the rest of you.

I'm out.



For those of you who know where the water stash is...I've placed a ton of water just down the jeep road. If you're standing on the road looking at Gordon's water stash, turn right and walk about 20 paces, on the same side of the road you'll see an inlet where trucks can pull over. Walk into the brush and on the right side you'll see (probably buried by now) two huge ziplock bags with water in them. If you're thirsty enough you'll find it.
