Archive for the ‘100 Days to HNL Marathon’ Category

Another 6 and it’d be the sign of the devil. 66 was at one time a nice ripe old age to retire….

That was then….I remember when my dad used to tell his friends take it easy and don’t work too hard…Wtf ever happened to those days?

Inspiration for the day is: Keeping positive thoughts and telling myself that there is no other way but to do it and complete it!…..


I might have found a place to drink a brew within the first 6 miles of the race……I’ll keep everyone posted when it’s all figured out in a few days….


Aloha folks!

We just got word that ProfessorBEP has registered for his very first Honolulu(HNL) Marathon on Dcember 9th, 2012. How appropriate that it’s only a few days before the(alleged) end of the world on December 21st.

Last night at 10:05pm he completed his 3rd full HNL Marathon Training day: A FULL 20 minutes of very slow but serious jogging thru the rugged streets of Aina Koa in Kahala….Yes a full 20 minutes of non-stop running.

By the professors’ estimate has only 25 more Training days before the end of March, then if he’s still alive…….. he’ll figure out what to do next.

His goals are…….

1. To have fun on his journey to the HNL Marathon

2. Train for 25 days before the end of March

3. Train for another 75 days before the end of September

4. Get 8 great local sponsors for his journey

5. Have a Hank’s Haute dog during the marathon

6. Drink 3 great tasting microbrew beers also during the ‘race’

7. Finish with family & friends

8. Finish within 8 hours

Notice: All goals are subject to change at anytime!!!!!

A review of the plan first devised in December of 2011 out of the brain trust also known as TheBEP Islanders at the GVHawaiiOhana Roundtable(not the Pizza place!!!) on the 11th Floor of the building currently known as the Pacific Guardian Building( aka Ghost buster Building of Ke’eaumoku, aka GVHawaiiOhana HeadQuarters).

Those present wished to be unnamed, but too bad…… Their legacy lives on!!!!
