After a weekend spent working in Lincoln, Nebraska, I decided it was time for a little getaway between games. The purpose of this trip is twofold: I need to make some headway on the two books I’m currently writing and, of course, I also need some miles. So what better place than Waikiki for an inspirational writing retreat/mileage run! I’ll be here for just two nights since it takes an overnight flight to get back to the mainland in time for next weekend’s game in Madison, Wisconsin. I started my day before dawn with a morning run and hike up Diamond Head crater in preparation for the Honolulu Marathon which I’ll be back to run in December. Now it’s time to settle in with my laptop, a mai tai and an ocean view and get to work on these books. Til tomorrow!
