As a runner, I think we should establish an International Tiki Day marathon/half-marathon/fun run complete with Tiki ritual, costume and appropriate prizes. Serious runners could actually "compete" and recreational folks could walk and/or jog with strollers to involve the kiddies - all in appropriate Tiki garb, of course. Or, could do a bike-a-thon with the same idea. Nice way to get folks out and about and add another race to their yearly calendar (and a few Mai Tai's to their weekly libation log!).

that's a nice idea - we could raise money for a tiki charity!

Scigirl,

I'm a runner (drug) also, how do you run year round in MA? Do they have running snow shoes?

Actually, running in winter is fun! You don't overheat and a nice, unexpected snowfall during your run makes you feel like a kid! I can generally keep my usual weekly mileage (35-40) even during the dead-o'-winter months. But, I admit to being a weenie on truly nasty days and reverting to the nice PaceMaster treadmill that resides in my home (in front of the tv and near the fireplace, mind you!).

I really like the idea of a charity fundraiser! What a great way to spread the word of Tiki, have a fun time and help out a good cause. We should start thinking about this for next year.....

How did enjoying tiki get so strenuous all of the sudden?!

Them poor damn Oceanic cultures worked hard for a living...a little plodding down the street is small sacrifice to honor their toils!

Only if they hand out Mai Tais in those little paper cups instead of Gatorade...

Personally, strenuous physical activity goes against my idea of tiki as a beautifully slothful pastime. Sitting in a dark room, listening to soothing music, perhaps a waterfall, and only using my muscles to form my lips around a straw. If your straw is long enough you don't even have to waste precious energy lifting a glass off the table. Now that's the life!
