Hogs Back 12 Hour---Why won't it drown in the mud and die?

Aloha Jan, the Honolulu Marathon, and the Evil that Lurks Beyond: Week End Training

Saturday morning there will be a fun run to say Aloha to Jan M out Hawaii Kai way.  Please check Julie's earlier post for details.  

This is also Honolulu Marathon week so....for many the weekend is going to be a street workout on Sunday. I don't do sprints, but I'm signed up for the Marathon,  so I'm thinking of going out in the evening and making it a double as I need the miles...contact me if you are up for such an absurdity.   Otherwise best of luck to all you fast people on the Big Sprint.  

If you are going out to face the Evil that Lurks Beyond then please post your trail run start times and departure points.  I've been busy this past week so I don't know what the state of the Stashes is.  I will try and check them before Saturday.  

Hope to see you this weekend at Jan's run or somewhere along the Marathon route.  I'll be looking for you as I head out the Hard Hot Highway toward Hawaii Kai, and as you guys return!

Aloha,  Mikem

Maggie, trail running along HURT trails now requires 'Creature from the Mud Lagoon' attire. I'll give you a call the next time I go out, though the Total Lunatic Eclipse Run took a bit out of me. I suggest you head up to the Nature Center and do a few 'inner loops' as a starter. Contemplating more, without understanding the muddy quality of the trails is not really wise, no matter what your mainland experience.

STASH AT JACK ASS HAS 17+ GALLONS. should last till after Christmas. run hard!


Mike, I'm too bust up to double this year so the streak ends. If you want to meet with Kawika and me at the marathon start we'll be at the mauka-Ewa corner of Piioki about 15 minutes before the start. Under the big 1350 sign. Gentlemanly pace.


I'm looking to do a loop after the Big Sprint. Probably start at Makiki around 11 or so. Anyone down? Otherwise I could be talked into a night loop to pregame for the marathon.

Good luck to everyone running the marathon. Barbi and I plan on a couple of over and backs starting from Paradise about 5:30 a.m. Saturday morning. On Sunday we are looking at doing 30 starting from Paradise. Thinking about a 6:00 a.m. start time Sunday. I hope to get 5 gal's of water dropped to Nuuanu Friday. My day is filling up but that is the plan.
Aloha, Bob


Rob, you spelled "lunatic" wrong. Should have been 'Total-lunatic-eclipse-pre-marathon-trail-marathon'


If anyone else wants to head out for this 'Total-lunar-eclipse-pre-marathon-trail-marathon' feel free to meet at the water tank at 7(ish).


Rob, sounds good. I'll email you.


Mike: I was planning to start a slow loop on Saturday night at 7. I was also hoping to get in 1-2 hogsback repeats before heading down to the marathon. But if your more interested in doing a double, let me know.
