Big Island Hawaii Long Run

Aloha!  If your looking to get some fitness in while on the Big Island a run up and down Government Main Road is a great choice! Come along with me in this video for a long run starting out and back from the World Botanical Gardens. You'll see both views of the ocean on one side and snow covered Mauna Kea Mountain on the other.  Outrageous views!  I covered over 6 miles but you could go further out to make it even longer.  Did this one in late December 2017 and weather was pristine, sunny and mid 70"s.  I parked at the Garden parking lot and totally enjoyed a cool down stroll through the gorgeous gardens. Truly a beautiful experience being among nature breathing in the harmony of the plants, ocean, sun  and snow covered mountain.
