KULA, Hi. -- Didn't have much time this morning so I decided to do the 4-mile loop from the back way of Polipoli to the highway.
I usually don't like it because the first half mile is pretty much all uphill. But later it wasn't bad- a great view of the sea from the top of the road, elevation maybe 3,500 feet.
I consider myself a really great hill runner but still it was pretty humbling having my calves burn out at the top.
The highway was ok- saw a couple of runners going the other way and some bikers.
Will be very happy to be running at sea level in Honolulu.
