running on the Big Island was so awesome. i got to run in Hilo and on the trails of the Kilauea Iki crater. in Hilo i ran down along the bayfront on warm, rainy mornings at 6am. the town was still pretty sleepy and it was so quiet and calm - the rain felt so nice. the Big Island is so very different from Oahu - it’s vastly less touristy, and there’s this homey, wild vibe that i fell in love with. i can’t wait to go back and it makes me even more excited to explore the other islands. it was cool to have my watch on and be able to log my runs - adding dots on my garmin map from running around the world is such a cool feeling.
now i’m back on oahu and running my favourite lanikai loop, and i’m thinking of adventuring into Kailua tomorrow morning to mix it up. this summer of running has been the best yet.
