In just nine days, I’ll be one of those runners in that photo: welcoming the Hawaiian sunrise on a quiet stretch of mountain road on the island of Kauai at the Kauai Marathon and Kauai Half Marathon.
Today, I leave for paradise. I couldn’t possibly be more excited except, perhaps, if I had a one way ticket. In just a few minutes there will be nothing at my desk but a poof of smoke.
I’ll be tackling the Kauai Half Marathon along with my husband, Phil, thanks to the folks at the Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa and the Kauai Marathon and Kauai Half Marathon, who graciously extended me an invitation.
Next time you hear from me, I’ll be on the Hawai’i, the Big Island, before I make my way to Kaua’i itself!
The Hawai’i Visitors and Convention Bureau is sponsoring my trip by assisting me with airfare, accommodations, activities and rental car. The Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa is providing me with complimentary hotel and race entries. But as always, all opinions are purely my own. I really do believe in being honest about my experiences. For more information read my Disclosure Policy.
