I'm still trying to figure out all of our wrong turns.......well, I'm assuming they were wrong. It may remain a mystery! :-) We did go by a tree full of rats......was that on the route? The "rat" tree was next to the "hula skirt" tree (ok, our name for it).

Dales Tale,
The Mango Madness 10 Mile trail run was the hardest races I have ever ran. 170 runners stared out running down a few steps then down around a huge tree then up a road then on a trail for a few miles of jungle trail running mostly up hill. Then we jump over a fence and ran and walked up the famous grooved concrete hill that went staight up for over a mile. I was looking pretty good at this point. I thought the hill was never going to stop. You would run a little then you would walk. Just when you thought the hill would be over there was more hill to climb. Once I reach the top i had to run down some narrow trail that looked like a small stream ran through it. Then the trail turn into roots, rocks, mud. I fell down only once during the race.The view from the top of the mountain was breath taking and trail was beautiful at every turn. We had just ran up to a top of a huge moutain and I was worried about getting back to my car. We where suppose to follow yellow ribbons on the way up and orange on the way down. And I am color blind. The pain I felt running down that mountain was real intense. And trying to run on roots,rocks was almost was to much. And there was these crazy runners passing me down that mountain. I thought I was going to die.Those Hawaii runners are the toughest I have ever witness. Toward the end of the race I got lost on the trail and ended up taking a short cut back to the finish. At the finish I went to walk back to my car to get my camara only to have to puke in the bushes. Then once I made it back to the race site for some post race food i puked again. I had to lay down in the shade and try and rest and was worried how i was going to get back to my car. After I felt a little better I walk to my car. Then back at the hotel I got out of my car only to have a really bad leg cramp so bad I was thinking about 911 aid car. it was a really a awesome experience and I am glad i did it. Would I do it again? "NO Way!" I didn't know what I was getting myself into. I will always remember the Mango Madness 10 Miler. The group that put the race on where a bunch of crazy ultra marathon runners. There name was H.U.R.T. running group. Now I know where they got there name. Now that I am back home and getting my legs back maybe I will be back next year for the Mango Manness 10 miler with a bunch of friends. Thanks for the awesome experience. Your new running buddy Dale(Crazy Legs)

Great race even though we were lost for most of the race ( which explains our very sorry time)! But hey, we found our own way back, and enjoyed the beauty of the trails!
