11-50 previous marathons | 1 Big Island International Marathon

The marathon started in the dark. Shortly after, the sun came up showing beautiful scenery. The first 8 miles were gorgeous with view of the the coast/tropical rainforest. It was hilly, more down than up, but not bad. The rest of the race was fairly flat. Some of it ran around the airport/national guard, but later there was more along the ocean and Banyan Drive, which was pretty. I got an awesome post-race massage… the best I have ever gotten (out of 38 marathons). The finisher’s shirt was cool. I tried taro sweet bread… super yummy! Post-race food and drinks were great. Awards were awesome! The race director was super nice and personable. He runs a well-organized race.
