An Early Call

LD and I got up at 5:00 this morning and made our way to the SD airport to get the heck out of dodge

Lets Go


Hello Waaaay Too Tan Girl

We boarded the plane and somehow scored an empty seat in our row…score! I turned 2 seats into a cot and got a solid nap in. Before we knew it we were landing in Maui!

How awesome are those clouds? These pictures don’t do the beauty justice.

Once we landed we got our rental car, stopped at Costco and made our way to Kahana! We are staying at a time share and it is perfect for the two of us. We have a little kitchen, a decent closet, a big bathroom and are steps from the beach. For $250 for the week we are STOKED!

After we got settled we headed down to the Westin to pick up my race bib and 8 zillion t-shirts. When you run the Warrior Challenge they hook you up with a shirt for each race. Pretty cool!Β 


From the expo we headed to a late lunch at Leilani’s. The food was good (we were starving) and the service was great! We could get used to this…


Now we are headed to the pool. Chill time!

  1. You two are going to have so much fun in Maui! So jealous right now. Great idea stopping at Costco on your way since the food in Maui is so expensive! In Lahaina, there is a great restaurant called Aloha Mixed Plate. It’s behind the Cannery Mall next to the Old Polynesian Luau. It is good local food and super inexpensive! Pretty sunset too! Also, I know you are a huge fro-yo fan so you must go to Ululani’s Shaved Ice (815 Front St, Lahaina) it is the bomb! One other thing, if you are even thinking of doing the sunrise bike ride down Haleakala…do it!! Amazing!! Have fun and good luck on your race!! Wish I could be there!


    1. Thaanks Gretch! Wish you were here!!

      We yelped Aloha Mixed Plate tonight before dinner!! We will definitely make our way there before we leave. Yay for good and inexpensive πŸ™‚ Shaved ice? YES PLEASE!!!!


  2. $250 FOR THE WEEK?!?!?!! you are my new idol, and I am jealous of your beautiful tan (I had to quit tanning for health reasons) BLAH. Can’t wait to hear and see more of your trip.

    I love the cloudy mountains but having been to hawaii I TOTALLY know how you look at something – you’re like *gasp* that’s so beautiful – *SNAP* and then you see the pic and you’re just like “what happened” so, just know I multiplied your photos by 10 hawaiian-styles πŸ˜‰

  3. That is such a freaking steal of a deal! $250? Did I seriously read that right… for the week?! Wow. And I don’t know exactly what a warrior challenge is, but I can’t say I don’t like the idea of getting a bunch of shirts for a race.
