Around the World Location: Vietnam and Cambodia Days: 8 Length: 15-30 miles/day How to get there: Traveled from Honolulu to Seoul, then to Hanoi. Bikes, support and logistics were provided by Backroads (www.backroads.com). Returned from Siem Reap, Cambodia to Singapore, then back to Honolulu via Seoul. Why should you go: Cycling vacations are a great way to explore new places in a very intimate and real way. This trip was full of local history, culture and food, with rides through rice paddies and fishing villages of Vietnam and stops at the temples of Cambodia. A wonderful way to travel with friends too! Do you have photos from around the world? Email us at hawaiisportmag@gmail.com Rider: Lori McCarney Photo: Rick Keene


We Know... That summer is upon us when the Swim Issue hit’s the stands. As this issue is prepping for the swim season, then the triathlon season is underway in earnest. The North Shore Triathlon will be a rare opportunity for triathletes to race on a scenic course on the North Shore. The season is full of great race such as Lanikai Tri, Honolulu Triathlon, Tinman, Na Wahine Tri and the new Kawela Tri. We hope with this swim issue that there might be new swimmers who would like to try out some of the many great swim races we have in Hawaii. The North Shore Swim Series is a perfect build up to the Waikiki Roughwater Swim, and in this issue you will also find applications for The Popoi’a Swim, The North Shore 5k. Swim, the new South Shore Classic and Duke’s Ocean Fest. Go and try your first open water swim this summer!

The Swim Issue… The Swim Issue serves as a favorite for the HSM team and readers alike—it heralds the start of summer and the opening of the ocean swim season. This issue we feature multiple ocean race winner Miki David. We wanted to capture Miki in her element, so we conscripted her into an ocean workout of a different sort: a beachside photo shoot. Her feminine charm and athletic prowess were a pleasure to behold, not to mention she was gracious in the endless ‘action’ shots we had her endure with fellow swimmer Steve Allnutt. “Ok, guys, let’s have you swim in that direction again, this time focus on matching your strokes.” “This time angle more left.” “Ok, that was great! Let’s do it again.” Hit repeat. Later, Miki confided she had no idea photo shoots could be so demanding. We’ll consider that a ‘workout’ she’ll always remember! With two Swim Issues under her belt, Hawaii based photographer Cyndia Lavik was the natural choice for achieving the look we wanted for this 2015 edition—a killer combo of rich color and bold action. On the day of the photo shoot at Koolina, we were blessed with gorgeous Hawaii weather: “It was a perfect sunny day for Miki’s photo shoot,” says Lavik. “Steve was a welcomed surprise too; he was on island for spring break. During the water shots, we worked on getting the timing right both above and below the surface. Our location also played a key role in tying everything together.” Check out additional session photos and a short video at Lavik’s website zoomhui.com

Overview: The Good to Great process for getting better at what you love to do involves having clarity in what you want to achieve, awareness of what aspects of your performance need to be improved, and the devotion to increase your level of participation. As an individual, with these prerequisites you are ready to move forward. As a team, the mystical same-page agreement must be reached and maintained. Good to Great

Good to Great

BASE

Be Grateful

BASE The base of your efforts to move from good to great is the foundation of your strength — your ability to work hard and get the job done. In this case, they are the principles and energy that allow you to be grateful, confident and able to do battle. Reflection: It’s like being on a team and knowing who you can count on — the person you trust completely, the one who has never let you down. When an entire team/group gets to this level of trust, magic happens. The environment is set for excellence to occur … and it usually does.

We exercise for self-improvement, to look better, be healthier, build strength, for a mental release, or to combat a few pounds gained over the holidays. There are always new exercises or stretches to learn, and we should always make sure we do them correctly. If done incorrectly, you will be making a visit to your local physical therapist. Whether it is a stretch or a strengthening exercise, there are three essential things we should know about each part of our exercise program. These three things may help you achieve your desired goals and avoid injuring yourself by doing something you shouldn’t be.

ASK THE TRAINER

KC Carlberg, MPH, Owner of Try Fitness www.tryfitnesshawaii.com The “Core Triad” As a trainer, I talk a lot about strengthening the core muscles in order to improve performance and posture, prevent injury and generally be stronger, fitter and faster. The core muscles are the foundation of all body movement and the key to success. However, for optimal health, I believe it is important to strengthen, what I call, the “Core Triad”. Holistically speaking, the 3 cores that make up this triad are the physical, spiritual and social cores. When all of these levels of your core are strong, it changes your whole experience. Let me show you what I mean. Physical Core – Our core is made up of a group of muscles which include the pelvic floor muscles, all of the abdominal muscles, the erector spinae (sacPhysical, spiritual and social core in action. rospinalis) especially the longissimus thoracis, and Photo by Julie Wassel. the diaphragm. Minor core muscles include the latissimus dorsi, gluteus maximus, and trapezius. courage healthy behaviors and support our goals.

Physically you can tighten your When these “cores” are working together it creates a synergisabs, bringing strength to your body, visualizing the power tic energy that keeps us strong, motivated and in alignment radiating from your center, opening the flow of energy and with our goals. There is nothing more powerful when the allowing your body to be strong. “Core Triad” are working together. We increase our chances of Spiritual Core - Our spiritual core is our essence and character. Our core values help to define our character and help us to believe in ourselves. For example, belief in a higher power, trust, honesty, integrity, love - they guide our behavior toward ourselves and others. Strong core values and a strong sense of self, helps us with determination, motivation, courage and strength to follow through on our goals. For example, these strong beliefs help us to get up early to train when we are tired, to go to the pool for a swim workout instead of going to happy hour with our co-workers, and to be consistent in our training and thinking in order to get where we want to go. Gratitude and a positive attitude help us stay in line with our spiritual core. Social Core - this refers to our social network of family and friends, the people we chose to be around. A strong social network can provide comfort, companionship and support throughout life. They are the people who will en-

The next time you are thinking about taking on the challenge of a race, I encourage you to think about how your “cores” can help you reach your goals. Whether you want to lose weight, run faster or climb Mount Everest, a personalized program is your best bet in achieving those goals. The hard work is always worth the effort in being successful. Let me know how I can help you with your journey and email any questions you may have to “Ask the Trainer” at TryFitness@hawaii.rr.com. And remember “PERSISTENT CONSISTENCY” is the key to success. Until next time, train hard, laugh often, love passionately and have fun. KC Carlberg, MPH and owner of Try Fitness Hawaii, www.tryfitnesshawaii.com

Breathing – three short yoga based breathing exercises for athletes by Susie Stephen Inhale, exhale. It’s something we do constantly anywhere from 15-20 times per minute, which adds up to over 20,000 breaths per day (American Lung Association). But how many of those breaths do we pay attention to? Have a go quickly now – just simply inhale deeply and feel your ribcage expand, then exhale and feel the lungs deflate. Simple. But as an athlete you are probably more aware of your breath than most people. You know what it feels like to be breathing hard as you power up a hill, sprint for a finish line, or propel yourself through the water. You understand that as you do more ‘work’ you need more oxygen, and so breathe more deeply. Our breath can also be a great indicator of generally, ‘how we’re doing’ – if our breathing is laboured on an easy run it could be an indicator that pace adjustment is needed or maybe more recovery. Ultimately we all want to become better athletes, with efficient delivery of oxygen to our muscles and luckily yoga can help the overall process. Within the yoga tool kit there are some fun, on and offthe-mat breathing exercises that can help you to develop a greater understanding of, and respect for your breath. Breathing exercises in yoga are called Pranayama, prana being the energy for life associated with the breath (breathing being the key to life) and yama meaning restraint, or control. 1. Easy run foot strike & breath awareness. This exercise is based on an example from one of my favourite yoga teachers, Sage Rountree. On your next easy run have a go at counting the number of foot strikes as you breathe. As you inhale how many steps do you take? And the same for your exhale. Similar to monitoring your resting heart rate, this exercise can be an excellent reference for days when you feel a little unsettled on a run. Focusing on your breath adds a meditative element to your run, and helps to center the mind. Also, if you suffer from side aches or stitches, try to notice which foot strikes the ground with your inhale and exhale. Then attempt to switch this foot strike pattern, which will assist with reducing the cause of the stitch. Both of these exercises are easy and fun, and can help in the long run with becoming a relaxed and efficient runner.

draw the knees up then bring the soles of the feet together as the knees fall out towards the floor. Gently lay your back down on the floor, tucking the shoulder blades together underneath you. Then place the right hand on the belly, left hand on the heart. Begin to breathe deeply through the nose, feeling the abdomen rise as you inhale, and then fall as you exhale completely. Maybe count as you inhale and exhale. Note if 2. Nadi Shodhana, Alternate-nostril breathing. the length of your inhale and exhale are the same or different. Breathing through one nostril at a time is a great way to focus Stay here for 1-5 minutes, then slowly bring the knees togethall your attention on your inhale and exhale (best practiced er, take the hands down and roll on to your left hand side when not congested!).

I grew up in Singapore, a multi-cultural, tropical island similar to Hawaii, watching Hawaii Five-0 in the 70’s. When I moved here at 27, everything felt immediately familiar and natural to me as if Hawaii really were my childhood home. Until, of course, whenever someone asks ‘Where and what year you grad?’ Busted!

that allows me a flexible work schedule to do this. He’s also OK with me having a yoga mat, stretch cords and lacrosse ball at my desk for mini-stretches and exercises through-out the day. I run up and down the stairwell at the office; my coworkers call this “Miki’s StairMaster”.

My mom was the original soccer mom… She carted me and my siblings around to swim lessons, Japanese lessons, ballet, tap, gymnastics, piano, violin, Camp Fire Girls. I didn’t start competitive swimming until my sophomore year in college. My coach Joe Shehan recruited me out of recreational swimming to fill his brand new team roster on the first ever Illinois Wesleyan Women's Swim Team. That was 1989.

“We can help riders put in a big block of cycling miles, for either cycling or triathlon,” Cando explained. “We can go as mellow as you want, all coffee-breaks, selfie-stops and sunsets on the beach. Or if you’re a real sicko we have some ridiculous routes developed, like our Deux Volcanoes 148 mile, 21,350 feet of elevation gain point-to-point ride.” Pro-level support at the Kama’aina Mini-Camps means that once you get off the airplane, everything is taken care of. Big Island Bike Tours picks you up, puts your bike together, and provides nutrition, sag, and technical support. The Next Big Thing What’s coming in the future? “We’re developing a Kama’aina Speed Camp, to work on sprinting, lead outs and tactics,” Cando enthused. “It should be super fun, with lots of drills and mock-races.” Cando will also be assisting pro road Team As you would expect, mainland riders are opting for weeklong SmartStop in the position of Assistant Director Sportif. “It will be a great way to keep my hand in and stay relevant.” Cando training camps with pro-level support: follow vehicles, daily bike tune-ups, and soigneur-level attention to details like rain will travel to the Amgen Tour of California as well as hopefully bags and bottle hand-ups. Hawai’i locals are also encouraged the Tour of Utah, the USA Pro Challenge and Tour of Alberta. “So you know if I tell you to do something I’m telling the same to attend, and there’s a kama’aina discount. thing to (pro sprinters) Shane Kline and Jure Kocjan,” joked But Big Island Bike Tours is also all about Kama’aina MiniCamps. “We’re here for locals to do 2-3 day Mini Camps, put in Cando. “I want to give each rider the ‘pro experience,’ the level of support I received when I raced professionally, so they some big miles, get pampered with lots of tech support, and enjoy riding new trails and new roads away from all the cars.” can maximize their potential as an athlete, or just thoroughly Right now Big Island Bike Tours is scheduling Kama’aina Mini enjoy their on-bike vacation.” For more information, email aloha@bigislandbiketours.com or Camps in July and August, after climbing season and before visit www.bigislandbiketours.com the Maui Gran Fondo, Dick Evans and the Honolulu Century.

Kristen Fan, 43:12 The 38th annual Hawaii Pacific Health Women’s 10k is a women’s only race celebrating good health and fitness. It kicks off with a Wellness Challenge at packet pick up where you can test your fitness abilities. Then, almost 1,200 mothers, daughters, friends, and military joined together at 7:00 am at Kapiolani Park to run or walk the 6.2 miles. The course was kind of hilly but I really enjoyed the camaraderie of all the women. After crossing the finish line, participants were greeted with roses. They then picked up tote bags filled with goodies, a finisher’s shirt, chocolate almond milk, fresh fruit, breakfast sandwiches, and a bunch of other health related swag from all the participating sponsors. I’ve never seen so many freebies in my life! This event is sure to make it onto my race list again next year.

In Memory of Papa Pea

by Mercede DeCarli, Photo by Pam Miller Bill “Papa Pea” Pagett June 6, 1935 – March 16, 2015 Bill “Papa Pea” Pagett was one of those people who was always happy with how God and life were treating him. Whether he was getting ready for a swim, riding his bike along the road, or running down Ali’i Drive, Papa Pea always had a smile on his face. At the young age of 79, Papa Pea was well-known and loved in his hometown community of Kailua-Kona. His determination, dedication and drive inspired many people throughout his lifetime. The smiles and time he shared with others have always been a cherished trait of his. Papa Pea was born June 6, 1935. During his working years, he worked as an actor, model, and racecar driver, just to name a few of his professions. He was also a loving father of two boys. In 1969, he moved to Kailua-Kona where he resided for the rest of his Jon Kunitake, Papa Pea and Peaman. life. On at least one Sunday a month, Papa Pea could be found swimming in Kailua Bay and running along Ali’i Drive at his younger son’s, Sean “Peaman” Pagett’s, biathlon events, locally known as Peaman races. One of the funny things is that Papa Pea got into the sport of triathlon because of his son, not the other way around, according to Peaman. Papa Pea watched his son compete in the Ironman World Championships in Kona in both 1982 and 1983 as he cheered from the sidelines. Papa Pea was so inspired that he decided to change his life for the better. Overcoming hardships and getting in shape eventually lead him to the finish line of nine ironman-distance races. In 1989, Papa Pea and Peaman both competed at Ironman Kona. They then raced together again in 1994. “[One of my favorite memories was] in ’94, just being there at the finish line waiting for him to come in and being able to give him a hug when he finished,” Peaman said. True to his

lifestyle, Papa Pea finished what he started and never gave up. “I love my dad. I was always proud of him with everything he accomplished and did and we had a great bond in doing the races together,” Peaman said. He also added that it was a fun time and a blessing to spend as much time as he did with his father. Many community members share fond memories of racing and spending time with Papa Pea as well. Joe Loschiavo of Waikoloa said that one time when he and Papa Pea were racing in the Run Till Ya Ralph Peaman race up Kaloko Drive, Papa Pea showed up with Duct tape on his knee and shoulder to cover up injuries from a bike crash. “After that I would always ask Bill at the Peaman races if he had any new Duct tape injuries,” Loschiavo recalled. “He would show me the latest ‘bandage’ and with a twinkle would say, ‘F-them if they can’t take a joke!” That’s just who Papa Pea was – a passionate radical, as Loschiavo put it. Michael Drutar Photo by Pam Miller. of Kailua-Kona would always see Papa Pea out riding his bike or walking through town, always with his famous smile on his face. “Pops always greeted you with a big smile, stopped walking, and connected with you,” Drutar said. “It’s truly a gift, and Pops and his smile were one of the things that [made] Kona home.” “Something that I really admired about Papa Pea was that he loved being Papa Pea. He was aware of, and enjoyed, his local legend status, and I think that was something that made him comfortable in his own skin,” Drutar added. “In his journey to Heaven, he went in the perfect time, in the perfect way,” said Peaman. He was healthy and strong even at 79-years-old. He passed peacefully March 16 outside in his garden at home after his morning ride. Papa Pea will be greatly missed, but his legacy will continue to live on in the lives he touched.

Clinic Issues: Time, Money, and Safety. By Carolina Anchieta I was looking for a group to train with when the Running Room (in Kapahulu) recommended BC Endurance. I was impressed with the program descriptions I saw online. The programs looked well-thought-out, safe, and professional, which is important when you're looking for a service. My biggest concerns were my time, money, and safety. My work schedule can be really hectic and it changes from week to week. I had to learn how to set firm boundaries and deadlines with my coworkers and supervisor. I also learned how to organize my time better. I was glad that training started so early on the weekend because I still had time afterwards to enjoy with loved ones. Money is always an issue. But I forgot about it once I joined the Oahu Trail training because I realized how much my fitness and overall well-being had improved. For me health has no price, so I don't mind paying. When money became an issue, I just cut frivolous expenses and saved enough for the trainings. I have never been much of a runner, so I had to overcome my fear of hurting my body in some irreversible way. I kept hearing horror stories about how running is bad for your body alignment, about losing toenails, sore knees and IT bands, and "hitting the wall." The marathon training helped me get over those fears. I felt safe and “in good hands." Now I know what to expect and what sort of pain is OK and what isn't. I will do the trail and marathon trainings again this year because, in the end, I was able to run 26.2 miles and that feeling of accomplishment has no price. Not only did I overcome my fear but now I really like running. :>} You can have fun and get in shape, too!

Interview with Nate Stanis Interview and Photos by Kawika Carlson Nate Stanis is a vegan, ultra-distance runner completing her Masters of Science in Botany at the University of Hawaii at Manoa this spring. In October 2012, she was the first known female to circumnavigate the Big Island of Hawaii in a single run to benefit PATH (People’s Advocacy for Trails Hawaii). It covered 244 miles over 12 days. This summer she will be blazing a new path on the East Coast with the Appalachian Trail Run for Nature Conservancy. Following are some questions she answered from her coach, Kawika Carlson, who’s accomplishments include running 26 Marathons in 26 Days, about the run:

was supposed to do for my living. Be a trail traveler or something, but, at the time I didn’t really know what that was… this was before ultrarunning was well known. So, I had this sort of obscure dream to train in Hawaii in the winter, while I went off in the summers to do be a trail adventurer. Years went by, and I ended up getting into the field of outdoor education. And, when I finished my undergraduate studies I was able to hike 1500 miles on the PCT. It wasn’t until 2009, that I started to develop a love of running and it made sense to combine running with traveling on trail, and ultra-running naturally progressed from there. Now is the perfect time to run on this trail because I’m finishing with my Masters of Botany, 10 years after the PCT.

Q: (Kawika): How did you come up with the idea for the Appalachian Trail Run for Nature Conservancy? Nate: I’ve had this dream of traveling on the AT since the year 2000. I was 19, loved nature and trails, and not sure what I wanted to do with my life. I read a book about somebody who hiked the Triple Crown of: the Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail and the Appalachian Trail. There was just something inside of me that felt really called. Like that was what I

Q: (Kawika): What makes this run special to you? Nate: There are many things that feel special about this run. First of all, I’m doing this to benefit The Natue Conservancy, an organization that I feel really committed to, in both my work life and personal life. Their efforts are spent conserving our threatened lands for biodiversity and natural value, and raising awareness for these efforts. Funds raised during the run will go to the LEAF program (Leaders in Environmental


Nate: The daily intensity will be a lot different from a typical through-hiker. There are a couple of key differences. One, I’m going to be a supported runner with a crew. Two of my good friends are offering their help, but we’re still looking for some more people to come out of the woodwork to help out. Unlike thru-hikers, I won’t be carrying all my own gear, and although I will be camping some of the time, it will be mostly car camping. And, the other key difference of course, is the speed. I’ll be covering a lot more ground than most people do in the day and pushing my body harder in the aerobic capacity on a daily basis, running long hours. Most of the through-hikers have a chance to stop and take in the scenery and maybe take a day at the lake and just be immersed in that. And, I’ll be moving past those places a little quicker. Q: (Kawika): What do you look forward to most? Nate: Two things. One is benefitting the Nature Conservancy and knowing that I’m helping a critical youth employment program. We’ve set our goals high at raising $100,000 for the LEAF program which funds 10 interns in positions with Action for the Future), which employs youth in conservation, conservation agencies. I’m really looking forward to seeing the and with my background as a teacher, I’m committed to being numbers grow as we fundraise and seek help. That’s $50 per a bridge for the values of protecting our ecosystem to our next mile, so seeing those numbers go up will feel really gratifying. generation of conservation leaders. When I found out that the Secondly, on a physical level, I’m looking forward to just seeNature Conservancy would partner with me as a benefactor ing what’s around the next bend as I run. One of my favorite it was exciting and makes this run all the more meaningful things about running on trails and traveling at ultra speeds and special. I think on a personal note it has been a long time is that you never know what you’re going to see next. And, dream, at a time when I’m coming into my own as a runner. as tired as you might be, or what mental state you’re in, you I’m taking the time after an intense Masters program to dedon’t know what’s ahead. It could be a black bear munching compress and be one with nature, and feel the rhythm of the on berries, or the most beautiful vista of layered mountains, or Earth every day. a stream running through beautiful forest. Q (Kawika): When did you start training for this run? Nate: I decided I wanted to do it and put the pieces together in the Fall of 2014. But, the training truly started training at the turn of the New Year. I ran a 6 hour race on New Year’s Eve in the San Francisco Bay area to celebrate the changing of the year and received a womens second place finish. But, it wasn’t until the beginning of March when I really started to build into peak training because my coach Kawika Carlson came here, helping to whip me into shape. Q: (Kawika): What are some of the things that you are doing to train for it? Nate: I’m running on the Tantalus Trail System, because the West side of the Ko’olau mountains offer some of the best training grounds for the type of conditions that I’ll be encountering on the AT. In fact, they are probably a bit tougher. I’ve been doing some back to back runs, getting used to feeling 40 mile and 40 mile days. Also, doing some strength training, ballet, swimming, yoga, and of course plenty of active recovery and healing. And, eating tons of plant based foods I love!

Q: (Kawika): What do you think are going to be the biggest challenges you face? Nate: Balancing my body’s physical limitations with my mind, and my spirit longing to keep going, and my determination. I know that some days and some moments I’ll slow down. There might be an unexpected zero day due to twisted ankles, or injuries, and illness. And, dealing with those physical limitations in a really healthy and determined way is one of the toughest things about running on trails, especially one that will last 55 days.

Q: (Kawika): How can people follow you and get involved in the run? Nate: We could definitely use more participation, and we’re really inviting people both here in Hawaii and nationally to help in this effort. You can donate to The Nature Conservancy, and find information on how to donate and give directly to the LEAF program through this effort on our website. You can also follow our progress through the website. I’ll be blogging not only during the training period, but day to day on the AT. You can see where I am, and hear stores from me and my Q: (Kawika): When is this run going to start, and where crew. Another way that we could really use your help and does it take place? participation is during the planning process and just getting Nate: The run will begin on June 15. I’ll be embarking from us to Maine and Mount Katahdin. I’ve mentioned that I’m in the peak of Mount Kahtadin in Maine, and traveling south graduate school and I’m not an officially sponsored athlete as 2,180 miles to Springer Mountain in Georgia, and that’s the of yet. And, would love to invite people to help us with transsouthern terminus. So, I’ll be running the entire trail and hope portation. We still need a van, we still need food for along the to finish in 55 days. Which means, I’ll be covering on average way, and lodging, and equipment for the run. So, every little about 45 miles a day, factoring in some zero days. bit helps. We have a GoFundMe page for personal donations, and all that information will be on the website which is: Q: (Kawika): Most people take 5 to 7 months to hike it. www.atr4nc.wordpress.com How is your run going to be different from what they do?




The Gorge 50k.

Text and photo by Melanie Decker Koehl It was a on whim I entered the lottery for the Gorge 50k, a flash on my FB newsfeed of a race that went by countless waterfalls such as Wahkenna, Fairy, Ocola, Weisendanger, Multnomah, Oneota, Ponytail, Elowah, and Dry Falls. It was advertised as not a “PR course” and very technical and rocky. I was sold! When I got in, my family was magically able to work around the schedule and I could adventure alone! I just had to meet my training partner, Deb, who has since moved to Virginia. Since the 50k is a point-to-point course, we were bussed from the finish (Benson State Recreation Area) to the start (Wyeth campground/ trailhead). On the bus ride there was plenty of chatter about past ultras and upcoming races that people had scheduled. I got the feeling I was in the company of very seasoned ultrarunners. Meanwhile, I was thinking of the fun I would have, reminding myself to take in the view, and capture pictures all while still making the cut-off times. The first half was technical, rolling, mostly singletrack, and wound its way along the base of the Cascade Mountains. Most climbs were of 200500 feet, very similar to the Maunawili Demonstration trail, for those that know Oahu. Rugged Oregon peaks met the mighty Columbia River, so it’s rocky and has its share of mud, but nothing that running A runner passing below Ponytail Falls. in Hawaii didn’t prepare me for. However, the second half introduced okay with that. I always knew I would finish and experiencsome serious elevation, switchbacks and steep downhill sections. Think of placing Kuliouou Ridge ing this journey with an amazing friend made it priceless. So if you’re looking for a challenging ultra through deep, old trail at about the 26-mile mark (1,500 foot elevation climb). forest, with mossy glowing green rocks, spectacular views, and I still wasn’t intimidated and kept going strong. There were breathtaking waterfalls, enter the Gorge 50k lottery! 3 full aid stations (9.3, 18 and 25 miles) so we had plenty of water and food. As a bonus waiting at the finish is locally brewed beer and handmade hot pizza. Yes, they even had a pizza oven. Thanks Trouble started for me with 10k to go. I began cramping so I started doubling up on salt, food, with some relief. I attribute to Rainshadow Running and the state of Oregon for knowing how to throw a party. it to not being adequately hydrated. It was cool (50-60s) and sunny, so I wasn’t as diligent about drinking. As with every www.rainshadowrunning.com/gorge-waterfalls-50k.html race, you’re going to push though some sort of pain. I was

AlohaTriCamp Join us!

by Mariane Uehara, Photo by Wagner Araujo I believe that great ideas arise when we share our dreams. AlohaTriCamp was born during one these sharing moments. Petrus Petrus Ravazzano, a Brazilian friend that lived in Hawaii for two years, shared with Tim Marr and me his idea of bringing people to swim, bike and run in Hawaii. Petrus is passionate about Hawaii and the lifestyle. He is also a triathlete and works with sport tourism in Brasil, where he takes Brazilians to race all over the world. So we bought his idea of creating a triathlon training camp in Hawaii right away! I dreamed about living the Hawaii lifestyle for years. Now after 8 years of living here, I still think that Hawaii is one of the most precious places and communities in the entire world. For Tim the idea was also very exciting too, since he loves Brazilians (laugh) and he is passionate about coaching. And of course we had to have Raul Boca involved in this project with us, because a triathlon training camp in Hawaii it just make sense if he is involved. So Petrus’ dream became our dream, too! For the past two years we have been brainstorming and discussing the best way to make it happen. After a few options, we decided that a training camp the week after Ironman Hawaii would be a nice opportunity, since there are a lot of Brazilians that come to watch the Ironman anyway. So after the race they could stay for one more week and swim, bike and run in the most iconic triathlon place on Earth. This past March we partnered with Wagner Araujo, the best triathlon photographer and owner of the biggest triathlon Aloha Tri Camp. Photo by Wagner Araujo, MundoTri

website in Brasil, the mundotri.com to launch and promote the idea of the AlohaTriCamp doing a “Tour of Hawaii”. We started the tour on Oahu, where we had an open water swim clinic with John Flanagan, and also participated in the Boca Hawaii Endurance Tri Training Clinic. Then we headed to Maui where we had three days of perfect weather, to riding along West Maui and up Haleakala. After three days in Maui we flew to the Big Island, where we swam at the Kona Pier, Hapuna Beach, and rode during the beautiful sunset along the Queen K Highway. The “Tour of Hawaii” it was a great way for us to finalize all the important details to make our Kona Training Camp to happen in October. The camp is going to happen from October 12 to October 18. The package for 7 days training camp includes: 6 nights at the King Kamehameha Hotel, airport/hotel transportation, special photos package for each participant, aid stations, and awesome coaching services by Tim Marr and Raul Boca. The AlohaTriCamp was created to bring Brazilians to Hawaii but everyone is very welcome to join the camp. If you like to swim, bike, run, and have fun with lots of brazilians, you will love the camp! So if you want to join us please feel free to contact us at alohatricamp@gmail.com KONA TRAINING CAMP When: October 12 to 18 Where: Kona - Hawaii More info: alohatricamp@gmail.com
