  • Some Perfect Gift Ideas

    Destination: Oahu

    wooden bowl at martin and macarthurYesterday, I did a little shopping in search of a few perfect gifts for the holidays. Because even though I have taken up the tradition of giving gifts that do good, I still like to give—and, ahem, receive—the perfect gift. Here are a few items that caught my eye.

    Destination: Oahu

    xterra trail run at kualoa starting lineOver the past forty minutes on the bus ride from Waikiki to Kualoa Ranch, Alex had shared her story with me. She’d arrived with her mother from Melbourne, Australia, not more than 24 hours before. They’d started exploring Waikiki almost immediately, discovering the pop-up tents and group yoga and running demonstrations on the grassy area at Waikiki Beach Walk that was all part of an expo for the world championship of the sport of trail running. Alex had packed her running shoes, being an avid runner back home, and deciding why not, signed up for the 10K trail run.
