A TRULY VIRTUAL WEB ART MUSEUM

2012

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!

Camping  families look like they're checking out; it's Sunday and the weekend's almost over.

 

 

 

 

 

 

18

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

19, another nothing to write home about

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But there's small airplanes taking off and landing on the other side of the road.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Folks camping on the beach at Camp Mokuleia

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

A cottage on the beach at camp

I wouldn't even touch the water.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Wood carver

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Passing horses again

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Roadside landscape

 

 

 

 

 

 

Another angle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Add one coconut tree

 

 

 

 

 

 

Long, long ways to go

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At least sometimes you know where you are... and you're getting closer.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Horse stable

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

22, still in the middle of nowhere.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

On the way back

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gotta be turning off this highway soon

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Classic country house wtih large mango tree in front.  Which came first, the garbage bin or the paint job?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Back under the bridge to Waialua

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Arid  and dusty Waialua

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

2.2 miles to go

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

At Waialua park again

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Evidence of a marathon still in progress

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spotted at around 24 miles, wife and friend relieved I'm close and will make it.  
See the relief in their faces, besides, of course, joy and applause.  Said I was taking this long because of leg cramps.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Remember this shot early on before sunrise?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Natural straws

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Left for those still far behind me

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Hang a left, this time, to Haleiwa, at 25 miles

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where is everybody?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Meeting of the Cones

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Passing side lane

 

 

 

 

 

 

You wouldn't sense you were close to the Finish but yellow directional signs point the way.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

More waterway from ag land... almost at Finish. In disstance can see the blue ocean all this is draining into.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Fellow Marathon Maniac

 

 

 

 

 

 

Entering the park

 

 

 

 

 

 

Finish line around the corner

 

 

 

 

 

All done!

 

 

 

 

 

 

With loyal supporters

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

THANKS FOR TAGGING ALONG!
