I Earned These Calories

Last month we family and I spent a glorious week in Kauai. Lots of sunbathing, swimming, and eating happened.

But the best part of the trip was the 22-mile trail run my husband and I did. Yes, I said 22 miles. You see, you can only reach the most beautiful beach in the world by boat or hiking the Kalalau Trail. Since my husband and I are both in the middle of marathon training, this was the perfect time to do this run.

It was the hardest run I've ever done and the longest by far. It took about 7-1/2 hours. Well, that's probably because it also had 10,000 feet of climbing. Yup, we are crazy! 

But the views?.....oh the views were gorgeous! It got more and more beautiful as the trail went further. Hidden waterfalls, the smell of fresh fruit, the bright blue ocean below....heaven.

Gotta replace those calories quickly, right? Well, Hawaii is known for their malasadas. Pretty much they are friend donut holes covered in sugar, but way better. Some were filled with cream too. So delicious and so worth burning all of those calories!

I must express some thanks to you just for rescuing me from this problem. Just after scouting through the the net and meeting advice that were not productive, I was thinking my entire life was done. Being alive minus the answers to the problems you have sorted out by way of your entire post is a critical case, and the ones which may have in a wrong way damaged my career if I had not come across your blog. Your personal expertise and kindness in controlling all the details was excellent. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't encountered such a solution like this. It’s possible to now look ahead to my future. Thank you very much for the impressive and results-oriented guide. I will not think twice to refer your website to any individual who should get counseling about this topic.
