UH vs. MSU Basketball--Wow!

A non-running story………….Jeff Huff and I have season tickets to UH Basketball and see each other (across the court) at games all year. We have suffered many “almost” great years and have remained loyal as best we could.

This years opening game (Saturday) was against 4th ranked Michigan State and as is his practice Jeff came to say hello before the game…………..he then proceeded in a cocky manner (very unlike Jeff) to predict a UH victory. I immediately replied “ I’d love it, but it’s just not going to happen…..however if it does, I’ll kiss your ass in public”! As the game progressed and UH built a bigger and bigger lead, I could see Jeff gesturing to most of the people sitting near him pointing to his butt and his lips and pointing me out across the court………he had 10 people standing and pointing right at me………….yikes!!

Well we won by 22 points in one of the biggest sports upsets of the year, and because I was able to escape yesterday………….you might want to come to the HURT pre-race meeting in January.


Training Run Review

In my mind, the best way to train for the H.U.R.T. 100 is to get out on the course and put in the miles. Of course, living here in Hawaii makes that easy, the course is 20 minutes from my house.

This past Saturday I ran two loops or 40 miles. It wasn't fast (or at least I am not fast) as the course was very wet and muddy, however the sun was out and as Ed says, "it's all good training." I needed to put in the miles and 12 hours later I felt good about what I had done!

Though I had company on the first loop, (Carl, a new Hawaii resident--thanks to the USAF and Marion for one of the legs), I was pretty much on my own for loop two. Three other runners were out on the course and also got 40 miles in (Ed, Gordon, and Marion), and it was nice to see them at various times throughout the day.

I've heard talk of someone breaking 24 hours this year? Who's going to do it first?

If you have not sent in your application, now is the time to do it!
