I had to get up early yet again this morning to be at the site I was evaluating. It was tough to pull my bones out of bed so that I could go on a long run this morning, so I hit the snooze a couple of times. The snooze lasted for about  9:00 each time I hit it, so I imagined that each time I hit it I was ticking off another mile. It kind of became a game! Just another run in Lahaina this morning before the sun came up. It was a good run, and tomorrow I am free until I have to get on a plane at 8:00 p.m. That means I cal sleep in AND run a long ways tomorrow.

It will be good to get back home for lots of reasons, and one of those is I will be able to hit the bike again. It isn’t that I don’t like to run, because there is a sense of accomplishment that only comes from a run. I just really, really like to ride my bike. Being in Hawaii is fabulous, but being here alone is just alright. I will change that next time I am here…
