Such a beautiful night! I waited until night to run because I've gotten enough sun I think I should play it safe. Great choice because the night is almost as beautify as the day here! The sky is so clear and full of stars and its really nice. I ran for a while and then I realized I was running in circles and so I took a random exit from the circle and turned left when I hit a for 10 meters later, so then I kept running and kept track of where I was running and when I got to 18 minutes I turned back and got to where I thought home was right on time. But home wasn't there (I had forgotten about the exit from the circle I had taken, so I walked along that road for about 30 minutes fairly bewildered until I'd explored every possibility except this one road I was sure was the wrong road, I took that one and it led me straight home. I called my friend and we talked while I was lost so it was fun. Good night 😊!!!

Tonight's run felt amazing. I ran an out and back and had a good time. My body is still recovering I have a kind of drained feeling come over me after just 2ish miles that used to not happen unless I was on a really long run, so I think Coach Houles coming back easy plan is a good one. Still I can't wat to boost my mileage to 4/5. I have a blister/bite on my left foot that's giving me a little trouble. Not sure what it is, a big red bump. I will ask my dad to take a look at it. I probably actually ran like 4 miles today because I did a little running on a trail because I had to find my family at one point. I got to snorkel at tunnels and explore a hidden sea cave today so I had a great time. Not sure which beach I'm going to surf at on Wednesday. One with big waves, low amounts of coral, and no riptides. We'll see how that goes haha, it will be fun!

I cheated today, I ran the same route as yesterday but I was feeling really pumped so I ran it pretty hard and finished it in 24 minutes instead having to walk in the last part. Afterwards I calculated it closer and realized its like 3.5 miles. So I went 3.5 in 24 minutes, that's a decent pace under 7:00. I was feeling really good. I need to figure out a better system for calculating mileage...or just get a Garmin. But I'm pretty sure the idea is that I'm doing about 3 miles, a little more probably isn't too bad a thing, better than too little. I will try to keep it to 3 miles tomorrow though, or like 3.2 to make sure its past 3.

Nice run today, it felt really good. It went by faster than it has been, I was to the end of the out and back before I knew it! Tomorrow I'm going kayaking!

5 miles of kayaking and 2 of hiking plus some swimming under a waterfall. Lots of fun, then I got chocolate ice cream!!! Good day so far, now we are the other side of the island so I will have to find a new route. But first I will take a quick shower and change to running clothes.

3 miles at a good pace, I had a lot of fun! I ran along the beach for a while, I ran some pretty fun obstacle things and at some parts it felt like I was flying, perfect hard pace that just felt good. Also pretty hot today haha, towards the end I was a little tired due to the heat and also because of the kayaking earlier today. Ready for a good relaxing night.

Really fun boat tour, I had so much fun! It was a really small boat and the captain was a super cool, he took us into the Queens bath which is this really cool small open cave thing with a giant rock in the middle, it was like a movie! And we saw a bunch of really beautiful places and dolphins and se turtles and an ancient Hawaiian city and we snorkeled more. Then I went on a run which went by pretty fast and I felt good but by the end I was tired and when I got inside it was really hot and i got a really cold drink and took the best cold shower of my life, I put it as cold as it could go and it felt sooo good! Nice day, tomorrow i will go surfing and hiking and hopefully run in the morning, then I leave at 9pm and get back to Utah at like 10am!
