Newbie looking for advice/friends

posted over 2 years ago | Report

Aloha all! I recently found out about this site through an app on my phone and I think I've fallen in love. I like being able to have a visual picture of my workouts and how it motivates me to not be lazy and skip workouts. I have been casually running for a couple years, but only recently started taking it more serious in hopes of running the 2012 Honolulu Marathon in under 5 hours. I also just bought a road bike this past month and I'm aiming to complete the Honolulu Century Ride in September. It would be great to have friends to follow so we can feed off of each others motivation and energy to accomplish our goals!

  • You're WAY more hardcore than I am, but FR sent :D ... say is that a pic from Tough Mudder?

  • I wish Tough Mudder would come down here. The pic is from Warrior Dash, an extremely watered down version of Tough Mudder. It was still loads of fun though!

  • Aloha Jarrett! Sent a FR. I grew up on Oahu, back in the 80s....am hoping to run the Honolulu Marathon too, sometime in the future. Or the Big Island marathon, but I wonder about the elevation on that one! For now I've been running the Marine Corps Marathon every year. Good stuff. Mahalo!

  • Aloha to you! I was born in Hawaii but now live in Michigan. I congratulate you on your Marathon goal. I am running my second half marathon this fall and am back to training for that and a few 5Ks this summer.
