Big Islanders Do Well at Honolulu Marathon

Doc Morita, in yellow, finishes 11th consecutive Honolulu Marathon

Big Island runners showed their talents in distance running during the Honolulu Marathon on Sunday with several producing impressive results.

Jason Braswell, owner of the Big Island Running Company in Kailua-Kona, Pahoa’s Trevor Johannsen and Laupahoehoe’s Alan Ryan ran with the top 50 of the world’s best distance runners during the 26.2 mile endurance race which had over 23,000 participants registered to do the event.

Braswell finished 34th overall for the men in a time of 2 hours, 55 minutes and 4 seconds, Johannsen, 37th; in 2:56:08; while Ryan finished 40th in 2:56:14.

“I’m not really pleased with my finishing time today,” Ryan said during a telephone interview.  “I was hoping to run 2:50 or faster but by 15K (9.6 miles) I started to fall off my 6:30 per mile pace and knew it wasn’t going to happen today.”

Ryan was coming off a 2:50 performance from the New York City Marathon last month and was hoping to ride the crest of his peak performance before feeling his legs start to give out at Honolulu.

“I wasn’t feeling good during the second half of the race and just went into a survival mode,” Ryan said.  “This was the end of a long season for me and now I’ll take a break before starting up again for the Boston Marathon in April.”

Hilo Internist, Dr. Aaron Morita, was joined by his running group which consisted of two physicians, several registered nurses and a couple of long time running companions.

“I improved a little on my time from last year,” Morita said.  “I followed my doctors’ advice and lost a little weight, 15 pounds, which made it easier for me to run.”

Morita completed his 11th consecutive Honolulu Marathon in 5 hours and 25 seconds and may have been able to break the 5 hour barrier if not for a pit stop.

“At about mile 23 I had to stop and pee,” Morita said.  “It ended up costing me my sub 5 hour performance.”

Morita and his Big Island running group of 15 were headed to Big City Diner later that evening for a post race gathering.

Morita and his Big Island running group of 15 were headed to Big City Diner later that evening for a post race gathering.

“We had a nice mixture of experienced and first time runners going with us this year,” he said.  “Losing the weight made me feel better and I had more energy at the finish, but I still need to lose a few more pounds.”

First time marathon runners that trained with Doc Morita and his group were Cindy Kuwana, 8:03:25; and Jennifer Maninga, 6:51:31.

 “It didn’t go as planned as I was hoping to run around 6 hours 30 minutes,” Kuwana said.  “I feel a little disappointed because of my time as I had to walk the second half of the race due to an injury I got in June from a car accident.”

Kuwana was a passenger in a car that was broadsided and still has back problems and an abdominal strain.

“I guess the main thing is that I was able to finish the race,” she said.  “I probably could have come in 20 minutes sooner if not for two port–a-potty stops as the lines to get in were so long.”

“Despite everything I had a lot of fun and made new friends,” Kuwana said.  “Overall it was a good experience.”

Maninga, a registered nurse, stopped along the course to help give CPR to a runner that needed help around mile 20.

“There was another man administering the CPR and I stopped to help,” she said.  “We assisted until the paramedics could get there, but I think he’s okay and will be fine.”

Maninga also had race jitters and stopped three times to use the portable toilets.

My stops for the toilet and for aiding with CPR probably added 45 minutes to my time,” she said.  “This was the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do physically and I have a new found respect for all the training and preparation that goes into running a marathon.”

Maninga credits her Sunday running group with Doc Morita as helping her finish her first marathon.

“They are the most amazing and supportive group that I’ve ever been with and thanks to them I was able to finish today,” she said.  “Before I even reached the finish line I had tears in my eyes and I needed the crying release for such an emotional experience.”

Hilo’s Marie Kuramoto finished in 5:17:11 one week after running in the Las Vegas Marathon in 4 hours and 13 minutes, placing third in the 60 to 64 age division and allowing the marathon veteran a qualifying time in the prestigious Boston Marathon.

“I’m still on cloud 9 after doing Vegas and I had decided to take my time in Honolulu this weekend as I was still nursing a tender right hip,” Kuramoto said.

Kuramoto belongs to a running group called Marathon Maniacs and to be in that group an individual needs to be able to complete two or more marathons within a 16 day period.

Despite being a cancer survivor Kuramoto has never allowed her illness to interfere with her training for long distance races.

“I just try to do the best I can with what I have,” she said.

Kenya’s Nicholas Chelimo won the race in 2:15:18 while Belainesh Gebre from Flagstaff, Arizona claimed the overall women’s title in 2:32:13.
