Day One: We arrived and the airport caught me off guard. It was mostly open air except for the gates! You did not get lei'd at the airport unless you bought one but I was pumped because we got lei'd at the hotel. I just love flowers so thats why I was so excited I guess ha. I look like balls from being on a plane for 7 hours ha but I think you can sense my excitement.
We then had a delish meal at the hotel and I was so lame I passed out about 6pm.
Day Two: I woke up about super early the next day. We went grocery shopping and waited for Dan (and the rest of the runners) to go to a meeting the the Team's director. We decided that since it was kinda rainy we would go do a bunch of non beach stuff with another couple. First we drove almost across the island to get to the island's only winery. They make mead which is honey wine and they says its the world's oldest drink! It was pretty good and we brought two bottles home.

We woke up early and drove to the canyon in the middle of the island with the PA team. It was a seriously winding road...pretty much everyone felt car sick but by the views were worth it!
