Aloha from Kauai. I'm laying here in bed thinking about going for a run, but I may just spend the day lounging at the beach like I did yesterday. 

After looking out the window and checking the weather for today, it looked like it was going to be a rainy day...no good for relaxing on the beach, so we decided to go to the north side of the island and hike to this amazing waterfall. It was probably the most challenging hike I've ever done. It was slippery muddy, up and down the whole time, we had tcross through a  fast moving river about 10 to 12 times, lots of big uneven rocks in the trail most of the way, etc. It ended up being 9 miles and took us 6 hours and I don't think we could have pushed any faster without hurting ourselves. Even at that pace we both fell multiple times. The water fall at the end was amazing though so I think it was worth it...I think.

I went for a run while Doone was relaxing on the beach. It started off rough hopping from rock to rock along the shore for about a mile before I found a dirt road that ran along the coast. I ended up getting a little lost on the way back and had to cross an overgrown dense field for about a half mile and got my legs all scratched up. 

Total fun 5 miles took an hour. 

Enjoyed the rest of the day on the beach, snorkeling where a large seal swam near us for a while, and seeing Wimea Valley.

I didn't get any real running in today but we kayaked up a river a couple miles then hiked a couple miles to a really cool waterfall. Then hiked and kayaked back. It was a fun adventure.

Slept in a bit, then spent the morning scuba diving. Saw a lot of tropical fish, a large turtle, a pretty eel, and even a small octopus which is rare during the day. Then spent the afternoon relaxing on a beautiful beach. I found a nice trail along the coast and got in a 4 mile run while Doone read. 

I answered the life long question of, "Just because everyone else is jumping off a cliff, would you?"  And the answer is a definite maybe.  At the beach we were at today there is a big 25 foot cliff over the ocean that people were jumping off, so I joined in the fun.

It's always so hard to come home from vacation and get back to real life. I couldn't get myself up and going yesterday so I took a zero day running. I forced myself out the door this morning though and got in an easy 10.

I woke up to a white thanksgiving as it had snowed overnight, so I enjoyed a snowy trail run until it started melting and then turned to a muddy trail run. It was a lot of fun. 

10 miles.

26 mile run up Provo Canyon and back to my sisters house. It was really cold and a bit icey  running up the canyon into the wind but was nice coming back. 

3:40 minutes

Since I'm heading back to the AZ desert tomorrow, I wanted to get in one more good trail run today. I ran up Mt. Baldy for 5 miles then turned around and came back for a total of 10.

I picked up some new shoes when I was in UT, so I tried them out this morning. I really liked them.

1 mile warm up then 10 more with Blake.  Felt really good this morning. I guess my lungs liked being back near sea level.
