I did it! I didn't know what to expect so it was an experience for me. You wake up at 3:00 am and drive to the Aloha Stadium. At 4 am, buses take you to a deserted dark downtown. There you wait in the dark for over 2 hours with 27,000 runners for a 7 am start. And then you run or walk 8.15 miles back to the stadium. I finished 7185 place out of 19210 runners. My time was 1hour and 38 minutes which was about 12 minute miles (5miles per hour?). Scratch this off the New Year's Resolution.
