12 mile run

I'm running again. My next marathon will be slc. Training starts now for those of you who want to join me.

While visiting my brother Seppo, I am taking advantage of the warm weather running. Today I ran 12 miles. Here are some photos of my run.

Seppo (pictured above) ran 20 miles today...he finished his run 30 min after me. Sad. Plus awesome.

I saw a turtle under this bridge.

Just one of the many waterfalls in Hilo, Hawaii.

I love it here, I feel like I'm on the set of Lost.
