Hey Al and Lizzy - have a great run! Enjoy the trip, it's not whether you win or lose or finish, it's how much money you raise

Boy' am i glad you said that!!
when this all started, I thought..."walk a Marathon, no problem... raise $4000, holy crap"

But with the great folks we have in the tiki community, found raising turns out not to be the hard part!!Thanks again ALL! I should have $6000 with the final moneys going in..... $2000 more then i was asked to raise... and I'm the top Fund raiser for the group going to Hawaii!!

But I'm going to Hawaii with a bit o' tendinitis in my right foot... could be a painful finish... yikes

for those who have not yet donated for a chance to win Tiki#100.... here an update of the final carving....

AL0oooooooooooooHA!! EVERY BODY!!!
You must of thought I died just after the finish line....
A week ago today I had no idea that I could finish a marathon and live to tell about it... that is with a painful tendonitis in my right foot...

But thanks to helpful hints on pain relief the foot was no problem and even got better some how??

you saw the statistics.... if you are going to spend 6hrs 50mins on your feet what better place to do it then paradise... at least that thought is how I got myself into this thing......

touchdown!! found warm sand in 'you know where' Friday afternoon......

time to Carb Up!! at the ASA dinner....

and Award Ceremony!! I was the highest fundraiser with the total still going

3:30AM!! Team Orange County Ready to Go...

4:00AM streets of Waikiki... two mile walk to start

wishful thinking here....

it took 1/2hr to shuffle our way here

with almost 27000 others, most of which were Wacky Japanese!!

off we go... that banana sure tasted great at mile 13....

another day in Paradise....

we were passed at mile 7 by the fourth place runner!! never saw the first three...

did I mention the wacky Japanese... we walked while Robo runner and Santa ran... they eventually beat us but not by much.... Lizzy's hip started to hurt about mile ten and it felt better if she jogged... then my foot would hurt... we ran about four miles of the race.

mile 18 not wanting to wait in long J-John lines, I ran into BK for a pee and a treat!!
don't feed the ducks!!!!! (the gal next to me, going the other way, is at mile 13)

love the Cheerleaders in Paradise at mile 19

up and over Diamond Head one last time!!

to a down hill FINNISH!!

o'ya'... this is about tikis, right?... these guys looked great at the finish

and so did weeee!!! all this for a medal and T-shirt... we sure look happy.

Recouping in Kona for two days.... NICE!!

here are 'official pics'!:
