Marathon or longer number 49 for the year, at the Honolulu Marathon, in Sheboygan, Wisconsin–er, Honolulu, Hawai’i. First, congrats to my friends Margaret Tollner and Michael Rhodes for finishing their 50th state this weekend, and many thanks to Tom Craven, Maniac extraordinaire, for hosting me and keeping me out of hours of traffic and parking fees. Hot and humid, but well supported by both volunteers and the community. Not terribly well organized start or finish areas, no post-race beer or pineapple, but oddly malasadas (who wants fried food after a marathon?). I definitely recommend Maui Oceanfront over Honolulu unless you need an exceptional amount of time to finish a marathon, but if big city marathons are your thing, Honolulu is where it’s at for Hawai’i. Fun fact: According to the state constitution any island not a part of the four counties is part of Honolulu, which makes Honolulu about 1,600 miles wide, including unpopulated islets and atolls, for frame of reference that would span more than half the continental US.
