And I give you . . .
. . . the elegance of presentation!
Honolulu Marathon this morning: got down to the turnaround point by 6 AM (I know . . !) and soon after the first wheelchair marathoners came thru, still in the dark. After 2 wheelchairs came thru, #1 (Titus Ekiru) led down the course - finishing in a new record (2hrs,7min, 59secs)! Racers seemed really strung out, not grouped. First female finisher was Margaret Muriuki in 2hr, 32 min, 9 secs. Both top finishers were from Kenya. The coppers had their work cut out for them this morning with at least 3 cars outside the marked cones - but it all got quickly sorted. Saw one costumed bare-foot runner! Without a flash, my camera did a poor job in the dark, so . . . .
Left the course at about 7:50AM (my clapping hands were sore) to stop by Sandy Beach, as the forecast had been 10-14foot surf - it didn't materialized while I was there. Surf was better yesterday - but still a brilliant clear, sunny, few clouds kind of day. Stayed about an hour.
