Jesse's Waikiki - Diamond Head Run

Remember I told you that Jesse did something else "fun" in Waikiki? Well, he got to see the entire Waikiki beach and Diamond Head because he ran the whole stinkin way! Our first morning in Oahu Jesse woke up at 6am (jet lag!) and decided that it would be fun to get a 10 mile run in. So he started at our hotel (on the far west side of Waikiki beach) and ran along the entirety of Waikiki beach all the way around Diamond Head (and then some) and all the way back!

When he first told me that, I was like um, that's really far. Are you sure you know where Diamond Head is? I almost didn't believe it until he uploaded his run and I saw it on this map (click on the link -- it's really cool to see!):

Jesse said it was one of his favorite things he did in Oahu. To each their own I guess. This is how I saw all of Waikiki beach:


  1. Wow, that's awesome Jesse! I'm sure its twice as hard to run in the sand too.

  2. what a crazy dude. now he should do it with krystle on his back. that would be uber-manly.

  3. Hi Jesse and Krystle! I hope you don't mind but I have subscribed to your blog to see how everything is, since I am not on Facebook anymore.

    Such beautiful pictures you have here! I really like your scrapbooking ideas, too.
    Somehow, I am not surprised at all that Jesse has run this distance.
