Hawaii was Fantastic!
Kirsten and I had an amazing time in Hawaii this past week and a half, and it was incredibly relaxing to just "be" and not have to worry about day to day stresses of life. We went surfing, kayaking, swimming, went for a super gnarly hike/run all the way up and down the Na Pali Coast (that's the pic here), and just enjoyed relaxing together. It's kind of funny that one sometimes has to go so far away to get away from the stress of life (although the direct flight to Kauai was definitely easy and nice), but I'm trying to adopt the idea of "being on island time" and that more relaxed low stress lifestyle even now that we're back in Seattle. Having been to Hawaii only once before (during the 50 marathons and then only for about 15 hours or so), this trip was a wondeful time to really explore Hawaii a bit more and we both loved it!
