Saturday Training: Hunting Expedition 10-27-12

Aloha Athletes,

238_14016637212_3968_nSomething different this weekend. We are planning a hunting expedition up at Peacock Flats. Guaranteed large game sightings.

Gordon has sanctioned this event and will be providing guidance and any last minutes supplies.

Being the smart hunter he is, Gordan has delegated most of the details to people like Rob, Larry, Cheryl, Joel and Steph and probably many others.

These game will mostly be two legged, however late in the day and evening, some may be reduced to all four crawling type positions. Runner-crawling-to-finish-lineIt's the nature of the beast. It is during these times, if you listen closely, you will surely here the animals crying and whimpering. 

If you are participating in this hunt, there is suggested apparel:  hunters or dayglo orance outfits. At minimum a hat like this works:

Robert will packing his big guns and shooting pixels of all the game he can see. Watch out for him as he sneaks up on the game and shoots them in their native running element. 

Don't forget to show up at Runner's HI on Friday to get your hunting license and other last minute details. This starts at 6:00 p.m. (and hopefully ends soon after that!).

Hunter check-in is at 5:30 a.m. bright and early the next morning.

Just to be clear, this hunting event is sold out and no, you can not show up Saturday morning and enter. You will have to wait until 2013 to enter.

Aloha, Bob

Hi, I have a couple of 'lost and found' items which were left at the 3-way aid station. Pair of white sunglasses, a purple visor and a camelback podium bottle. Jeff also gave me a Peacock race wallet which was left at the Gordon`s loop aid station, race number 30, Rael Philipe. Contact me at


From my perspective it was an awesome day! All those amazing, awesome runners happily running right into my "kill zone" time after time. :) Think I just might end up with a few trophy shots out of the day.

Took just over 1200 photos with the two DSLRs I was packing and thanks to the generosity of Bill Lezzer I have over 7500 GoPro photos from the day. That doesn't even account for all the photos my wife, Sharon, took down at the Base Camp!

Needless to say it's going to take quite a while to sort through all those, process and post them. Your patience is greatly appreciated. For those that have been around a while, they know that the runners are much, much faster at running than I am at getting photos posted. Hopefully when you finally do see them you'll agree it was worth the wait.

Mahalo for everyone that were such great participants and gave me your smiles and shakas as you passed. :)


Yeehaw! Game ON! It's huntin time!


Guns loaded, pixels sharpened. Terrain maps studied. Plan of attack formulated. Prepping Game Bags now. Ready to feast on the adrenaline of the Game as it attempts to elude my ambushes at a variety of locations. Good luck to the animals, they WILL need it. Muuuuhahahaha!!!
