Distance Season 2013:
As always, distance season brings a shift in gears in training and anticipation of the challenges and events coming up.
The annual Kona races are always a highlight experience. Ānuenue green was there in 2013 with entries in both the iron races at the double hull event. The best finish was a second in the OC6 menʻs iron event in the 65+ division by Nappy and company.

It’s almost Molokaʻi time with the wahinesʻ race just around the corner! Looking back at the distance events to date, besides Kona, Ānuenue results were as follows:
8/18: Duke race: A DQ erased an official finish which would have been middle of the pack in 19th place.
8/24: Kailua Challenge: 65+ women first in the division and 22/29 in the short course.
8/25: Dad Center: two entries finishing 39/45 and 42/45.
9/08: E Lau Hoe: one crew 31/36.
9/14: Ayau race: Two open crews: 22/47 and 34/47.
9/22: Na Wahine O ke Kai 2013: It was a long day on the water for two Ānuenue crews with both crossing the finish line in a little over eight hours: Ānuenue open: 8:00:22 (59/66) and Ānuenue 50: 8:06:40 (61/66). Good job, ladies!
10/13/2013: Moloka’i Hoe 2013: Congrats to our two open crews! Ānuenue 1: 51/99: 6:10:18 and Ānuenue 2:69/99: 6:31:02.
