Super Pig Does it Again
Saturday Training: 8-1-09 Maunawili Out and Back

Saturday Training: 7-25-09 Maunawili Trail Repeats!

This Saturday is one week before the Maunawili Out and Back Trail Race of the H.U.R.T. Trail Series.

Some people were complaining the trails were too dry so it has rained pretty good over the last 12 hours or so. Enough to keep the dust down anyway.

Other people were complaining about the distance being too short so that is why this post is entitled Maunawili Trail Repeats.

The start time for training on Saturday will be 6:00 a.m. at the Pali Lookout. Don't be late! There will be some water and aid stashed at the far end of the trail as long as some of you gave Cheryl $5 or $10 as Don suggested last week.

Be nice to hikers on the trail. Some of them are lost. They like to take the long way to Maunawili Falls.

The finish time will be determined by how many repeats you want to do.

Watch for Pigs. Oink-Oink!!

Remember, one way is 11 miles. Round trip is 22 miles. You can always just do a portion--and out and back of what is comfortable for you. 22-mile repeats are optional. Don't forget your electrolytes.

Actually there is little difference between lost and stupid,or ignorant...which on trails we run is the equivalent of stupid. I've run into a few groups of people in the last few weeks that didn't know where they were or how to get back to where they came from,if in fact they knew where they came from; which is not to say I could not tell them where to go or where they were--neither being what they wanted to hear.

In most cases, not matter what you tell them, they are willing to go to far with too little water and energy, and then they become too bonked to figure out how to get out of where they got themselves into.

Remember, there IS such a thing as a one-way; even if the car is in Waimanalo and they are at the top of the falls trail. The Bus runs from the Maunawili trailhead to Kailua, and then Kailua to Waimanalo. Tell the listening ones to go that way. You can only laugh at the really brave ones and hope they catch on to what it is you are implying. See ya out there!
