Update from Afghanistan and Ed B.

Pounding the Peacock Pavement; Long Road Redux; Kealia Kalamities; Hard Times at Bad Water Stash.

You got the idea???  Get out there and Suffer.  Take your own water to the top, stop yer whinning, NOBODY cares if you think it's all BS.  Want to finish the hardest 100 K  in about 5000 miles?   Then you best be out there this weekend.  

Saturday.  Long Road at 5:00 AM,  Airport at 6:30AM.  Sunday will be a repeat of Saturday. This week and next week, and the week after that, and guess what after that?     

If your feet is bothering you, then just roll down that road!  I do all the time.    

Aloha,  Marv.

Wet, muddy, rainy, windy, but did 15 with the Sons of Kaupekamoku. Great time. Kaiana kept us laughing with great stories of jokes he played on Kamehameha. He complained that Kam really had no sense of humor and cut him from the ruling committee for putting a poopy cushion under Kams thrown pillow. Kaiana admitted he hung around with Ka'ahumanu a lot, but was insistent that he did so in order to make the moves on her mother. ....Just goes to show that the truth is often stranger than myth....

5:30 was not judged close enough to dark. 6:34 voted in as departure time. Complaints from the locals that they had to get up too early and be on the trails before dark. The living leave the top of Manoa road at 6:34, will meet up with the others at the falls. Alu loa, alu vave, au'a le pisa!

Oh, and the good news is, it's only supposed to get up to 90 degrees on Saturday!

A few of us are starting at Long Road at 4:30 am, if anyone wants to join us. So far it looks like Doug B., Scott G., Rosie and me. So if any of you are stupid enough...er, I mean inspired enough...to run up long road at 4:30 am, we'll see you there! Just remember, if you park in the neighborhood, please keep your voices down so we don't wake the residents.
