Doc’s talk focused on running in wet conditions – wet shoes, blisters, and other items in regard to wet weather running. How appropriate since a major storm just passed us by last night – this thereby created great running weather- overcast conditions with a nice cooling breeze.
The R& R and H Café was open for business again; thanks to staffers Rachun, Robert and Henry for a food spread worthy of a five star café. The egg, tomato, pepper, open faced sandwiches were delicious and blended well with the fresh fruits and refreshing drinks. Much mahalos!! Continue reading

First Bus Run:
Thanks to everyone for being so prompt so we could leave on time. About 200 runners rode three Robert’s school buses and got dropped off Maunalua Bay in Hawaii Kai.
