A run-with-me virtual opportunity to imagine yourself running the 26.2 marathon.  
On foot you see much more than when you do the route by car. Come run with me!

Weeds holding back soil erosion of field

 

 

 

 

 

 

A side road through agricultural land along the paved street that we are running on

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Frame it

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Could have been Miss Volunteer of the sports event.   Leader on the way back.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Imagine living here

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A rainbow greets us at 11

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Future harvest profits golden?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rats! All these telephone poles and lines are in the way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And I also  cannot get that guy out of my shots.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A great running shot!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Patience was a virtue.  This composition integrating the telephone utility lines works.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rain's gone.  Still running along this long, long, highway...which turns out to be the scenic nature-Hawaii segment of the run

 

 

 

 

 

 

Big difference from main streets, yeah?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

12 by a ranch and ironwoods

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Even horses!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Ah, water - probably Waialua high school student volunteers getting community service credit.  Of course I could be wrong.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long time famous local youth camp on the island.   Daughter Rochelle stayed here long ago.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Across the camp, on the other side of the highway

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Abuts Dillingham Airfield - and paragliding drop zone

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Bad luck "13" in front of airfield

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long airstrip along the mountain range that ends as "Kaena Point"- the eastern tip of Oahu island.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Entering Kaena Point State Park

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finally, ocea front run

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

15 miles is in Kaena park

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

So is YMCA's Camp Erdman - since 1926!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This guy's heading back from the turn-around;  typical Camp Erdman cottages

 

 

 

 

 

 

Cacti loves dry and hot - that's Kaena beach area

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Only mid-way computer chip time recorder on the route.  Nice official,  because....

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

He asked if I wanted my picture in front of the sign, so I said, "Sure!"

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the end of the road to Kaena Point, eastern tip of Oahu island.  Also turn-around point to back to Haleiwa.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At the turn-around Keana Point aid station.  Last slip of water before you head back out on that long, long highway?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Then she asked if I wanted my picture taken next to the sign.  I said, Why, Sure!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It will be blazing  hot and dry, threatening dehydration and leg cramps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Kaena Point beach parking area

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

An energy pack,  before you hit the highway back...

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Classic

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By myself

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Nice view!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

By 17,  she's long gone

 

Keep on Running!
