Kukio Challenge anyone?
Kekaha Kai Beach State Park on the Big Island of Hawaii
Well this job selling Real Estate for Hawaii Life has kept me so busy that when I decided to enter the Kukiâ€™o Challenge, I had not trained in advance at all. This is a fun race held at Kuki’0, by a nonprofit group who contributes and helps maintain areas including nearby Kekaha Kai Beach.
Starting the ½ mile swim was the hardest for me, then the 3 mile run through the trails of Kuki’o was wonderful, again no training I just wanted to finish reasonably well somewhere at the end of the crowd is fine. I had my family there cheering me on! It was most amazing to hear them cheering from far out on the ocean when I rounded the point. Yells from my 3 year old grandson were fuel for my exhausted stand up paddle finish!
What a fun day ending with wonderful food and fresh fruit smoothies and finally our own Kona brew pubs latest brews!
Well….needless to say I love living here on the Big Island…contact me for more information on Kukio real estate, or any Big Island estates. Who knows, maybe I will take you on a stand-up paddle at Kekaha Kai beach!
