Last day in Hawaii! 🌴🌺🌊
Certainly never had this problem after 800m races! #marathon #marathoner #Honolulu2017

7:01,6:53,6:55,6:51,6:44,6:47,7:03,
6:50,6:38,6:44,6:33,6:36,6:38,6:39,6:37,6:30,6:32,6:33,6:30,6:39,6:45,6:44,7:12,8:03,6:43. Did not hit "the wall" but hit a massive hill at mile 24. Who put that there?!? 😡 Massive THANK YOU to @honolulumarathon for putting on such a fantastic event. #Honolulu2017 #marathoner

Went to get my race bib for the @honolulumarathon and they gave me some @RunGum back! Yes, every single participant at the 2017 @honolulumarathon is getting free Run Gum. That's over 25,000 people fueling their runs this weekend!! #WhatDoYouRunOn #RunGum #RunAloha
I can think of worse places to train! πŸ™Œ
Runner: Hey Nick, why did you choose @honolulumarathon for your first marathon? 
Me: Is that a serious question? πŸ˜ŽπŸ„πŸ½πŸ πŸŸπŸ‘πŸ¬πŸ¦ˆπŸ³πŸŒ΄πŸŒ
Sneaking in a bit of last minute altitude training before the @honolulumarathon! Stood on top of #MaunaKea this morning, elevation 13,795ft. Unbelievably beautiful sunrise casting the mountain's shadow onto the Pacific Ocean. πŸ™Œ #statehighpoint πŸ—»
Movember 30th. Best day of the year!
