Run For The Whales

Saturday February 9, some co-worker and friends (Ron, Ben, Byron and Shannon) and I, participated in the Run For The Whales Fun Run. We did the 5K run and it was fun!

It was a last minute decision for me. And knowing that we would be staying up late the previous night because of The Music Man, I was afraid I would bail out. I did not pre-register so it would have been easy for me not to show up on the run. Good thing I asked Ron to give me a ride to this event because my husband has a Taekwondo class at that time and I didn't want to drive to the event myself because I wasn't sure where exactly it would be and my sense of direction is bad.

6:45 AM Ron picked me up and we arrived at the upper Wailea parking lot at 6:55 AM where the shuttle bus will take us to the START. Before the race started, our friend (and our boss) Mark showed up to show support (nice guy :) ). I'm glad he brought his camera and took some pictures of us because I wanted to have some photos of this event but didn't want to bring the camera while I run.

Ron, Ben, Byron, Shannon and I did it! We finished the race, and finished it well. They served fruit and muffins for breakfast; we got a T-shirt; and one of the best part for me is that we got a free massage after the run! Yes, free 15 minute professional massage! That's worth the run for me ;)

It really was a fun run and I'm definitely doing it again next year, and that time my daughter and I will do it together.

This coming Saturday, February 16, is the Whale Day at Kalama Park. Don’t miss it – it’s a day full of fun for the family. For more information, visit
