TROPIC LIGHTNING REAL ESTATE AGENTS OF HAWAII COMPETE IN 8.15 MILE GREAT ALOHA RUN
Each year, Honolulu Hawaii hosts the Great Aloha Run; a 8.15 mile race from Aloha Tower to Aloha Stadium.
This year, there were 13,742 entrants in all different categories from expert runners, to young children to racers in wheelchairs. Some of the major participants are our military comrades from Schofield Barracks, Wheeler Army Airfield, Marine Corps Base Kaneohe, Pearl Harbor, Hickam Air Force Base, Tripler Army Medical Center, Camp H.M. Smith and several others across the island. As a retired Military family ourselves, we are right at home in the company of all of our fine Soldiers, Sailors, Arimen and Marines.
Tonya and I decided to represent Tropic Lightning Real Estate this year during the race. We arrived at Aloha Stadium where we boarded a shuttle bus that would take us to the starting line. After sitting around and stretching for 1.5 hours while waiting for the race to start, we began to run at approximately 7:15. The Mayor of Honolulu, Muffi Hanneman, was at the starting line and waved to everyone as they set out on the 8.15 mile journey.
Tonya and I finished at 1 hour 51 minutes which equates to a 13:40 per mile pace. That put us in finishing as number 6,921 and 6,925 out of 13,742 total competitors. The weather was perfect for the duration of the race and crossing the line inside Aloha Stadium is a great accomplishment. We look forward to competing again next year and representing Tropic Lightning Real Estate.
