It didn't HURT too bad

I've just returned from an eventful trip to the island of Oahu, Hawaii for the H.U.R.T. 100, an ultra run. The flights were long and the race was excellent.

Although I didn't notch a 100-mile finish, I did score a 100km finish, my longest continuous run to date. More about this in my H.U.R.T. 100 race report.

The best things about going into the unknown (terrain and race distance) are the lessons learned. Unless you do something different, you don't get to identify your weaknesses or learn how to better your performance.

Overall this race was an amazing experience and I've returned home with treasured memories and fueled motivation.
