A week ago, today, I was helping on the run aid station at mile marker 2 on Ali’i Drive.

Yes, the Noble Road saw some wonderful athletes breaking records and some wonderful athletes almost broken. They left nothing out there, and today there is only the chalk left on th...

Being in the lead vehicle for the full distance gave us a perspective of the race like no other. The amateurs were led out of the water by Tyr...
