Listed by Runner’s World among the Top 10 Bucket List Half Marathon Destinations, The Kauai Marathon is definitely on my bucket list of destinations, period! Lucky me, The Kauai Marathon and Half Marathon are taking place on Sunday, September 6, 2015, one day after I turn the big 5-0. That’s not Hawaii 5-0, that’s me turning 50! You know what they say, “When in Kauai during the marathon, RUN IT!” And so, I am.

Highlighted on The Kauai Marathon website is a full drive of both the Half Marathon and Marathon courses. You can bet I’ll be studying those videos. Where I live, there are a few hills but I’ll bet the hills are nothing like those of Kauai on so many levels. I’ve incorporated hills into my training which you can follow over at thebikinichef.com (first post coming August 12, 2015) and on Periscope/Twitter @thesusanirby @thebikinichef
