Before diving back into The Maui Chronicles and sharing the very last day of the bf’s visit, I thought we could recap the weekend! It was a Beastly weekend for everyone and I have few photos to share:)
In all honesty, I didn’t take that many photos–and the ones I did take–didn’t come out that great! The *only* camera I have is my iPhone 4, and for long-distance photos, it sucks! Friends are still needing to upload, sort through, and edit what they have, but once I get more I’d love to show off more pictures!
Until then, here are the official HCRA State Regatta Results at Hanakao’o (Canoe) Beach on Maui!

It was such a fun event! About every Canoe Club had food tents, and there were a lot of different venders selling all kinds of unique Polynesian merchandise. The best are all small business owners and only sell on their Island so we I get a little crazy with the impulse buys!
I spent way too much, but c’mon, in reality it’s priceless–I would have otherwise been super bummed I didn’t get something. In fact, I’m actually bummed I didn’t snatch those two shirts above — my friends Auntie did, and I’m suuuper jealous! Ah!
I talked to the boyfriend briefly after his Spartan Beast Race in Vermont… Not only did he look like death, but he sounded like death, and I was still at Canoe Beach with hundreds of other people not giving him the sensitivity he probably needed! He said he was going to shower and go to bed, and ended up calling me back hours later for a mini recap.
First of all, here are the results. Can you believe that 41 year old beast who finished in 1:13:03.9?!?! WTF?!?! Is that even possible?!?! Considering he’s a Vermont native, perhaps he’s been practicing–but either way–that’s ridiculous!
The bf said the course was more like a 90 degree incline hike and he about blew out his knee in the second mile…
However he refused to quit and declined the dignified exit at mile three! Somewhere in the 12 mile debacle they ran through fire…
Good Job boys! You may not have finished in just over an hour–but you finished!! You’ve both earned your bragging rights:)
Did you run any races this weekend?
