Get Off the Beaten Track on Oahu

If you like O'ahu. If you like nature. If you like running. Then, the XTERRA Trail Run World Championship is for you. Maybe.

This past weekend, Kualoa Ranch hosted the off-road, half-marathon--Outrigger Hotels & Resorts was the official hotel sponsor. For those not up for 12 miles, a 10K (6.2 miles) and 5K (3.1 miles) option was offered. More than 1,000 people participated.

I used to run. I logged plenty of 5Ks and 10Ks. Even a marathon--one. But I haven't run much in the past five years due to a over-training injury I sustained training for the big race. These days, I hike. There is lots of hiking in Hawai'i. And have you noticed our mountains? They're a tad vertical. Hiking is no walk in a park here. So, I may be up for the XTERRA next year. Looks fun, don't you think? I could start training now. Or make it my New Year's Resolution. Goals are good.
