    Feeling a bit fatigued. Hungry and eating like crazy. The run itself was okay, except for the hills around Pearl Harbor and head winds heading into Aloha Stadium. As usual it was very congested at the start and can be chaotic with runners sprinting off in da excitement, adrenaline pumping. I was alongside the military Sounds of Freedom for most of the run, maybe the best part for me. I like the call and response cadence...reminds me of when I was in basic and advance infantry training.

    The traffic afta was a mess, probably took longer getting out of Aloha Stadium in my car then running from Aloha tower to the stadium. Plus leg started to cramp while in car...damn. However, GAR is an excellent charitable event and I'll do it again.

    I know! I tink das da best if you want to "run". I posted my best time years ago running along side da many Sounds of Freedom groups.... I even was chanting da cadence as well. :grin:

    The traffic afta was a mess, probably took longer getting out of Aloha Stadium in my car then running from Aloha tower to the stadium.

    Rogah dat! Luckily Da Wife spotted anoddah exit and we was out in no time. I don't tink people realized dat they turned da Halawa entry into an exit.
