I'm two weeks out from the Houston Half Marathon which I'm running with my girlfriends Amanda and Caitlin, so I'm still sticking to my half training plan which called for 8 miles this weekend. David thinks I'm a bit crazy for running on vacation, but he's used to it, so he didn't mind too much ;). My parents even decided they would join for the early morning run, so it was a family affair.
We ran on base near Pearl Harbor, and it was nice to be on flat land with the water right there. David and I ran the 8 miles together, at around a 9 min/mi pace, finishing with 8:30's for the last few miles. My Dad ran on his own, and my mom run/walked for 2.5 miles. It's great having athletic parents that like to get out and go! My mom and I mainly ran because we wanted to show off our cute Lulu purchases. I got a white skirt with ruffles that I'm in love with. My mom got a super cute flowy top.
Post-run breakfast was at Orville's on base. We could sit on the patio and even enjoy a rainbow – first rainbow sighting this trip!
Everyone had French toast, except me, since I was craving Hawaii-style eggs & rice. Rice is a pretty common breakfast side in the islands; I like the sticky brown rice. With a little soy, you're good to go.
As we were driving home, we saw another full rainbow. Looks like we may see more today, it's a bit cloudy and misty. I guess it's a good day to pack and plan for our Big Island adventure!
