We decided a 5k was an excellent way to spend a Sunday morning in Kona. Of course, we failed to notice the 6:50 am start time. On the bright side, we beat the heat by running early.
The run went along a road in town with views of the ocean and multi-million dollar homes. Thankfully, the hills were gentle and rolling; more like ocean swells than hills, really.
For my part, I was just happy to finish. I have only been training for two weeks, so I'm not at my optimum. I did run the whole race, and I finished right in the middle of all the women at just a smidge over 40 minutes.
Matt had a great outing! He finished 7th overall and 2nd in his age category, which netted him a gorgeous plaque.
Good race and fun times. Can't wait to keep training and improve my times.
