Merry X-mas everyone! The waves are flat in town today. Its super windy and no wind swell. Yesterday I surfed Chuns for a little while. It was about 2-4 ft maybe some bigger sets and wasn't too crowded. Afterwards, we headed to Brice's house and cruised over there for the night. We played Nitendo Wii all night! We played everything from Bowling, baseball, boxing, and Tennis. We must've played Tennis for like couple hours and I won every single match! Haha. Even in the other sports I won most of them but I let them win a couple (since it was X-mas Eve). Lol. Every single time they lost a tennis match, they would say "Now I know how to beat you!" but they never did. My arm was actually sore from playing too much. Here are some pictures of their bowling style and a pic of the 2 defeated soldiers. Haha.

Headed up to the country yesterday with Arden and ended up surfing a little at leftovers and at Rocky pt. THe waves at leftovers were about 2 feet and the water was murky so we headed to Rockys left where it was 3 feet and perfect. A little crowded but they were mostly international people plus we were on our longboards so it wasnt too bad. Today Im at Gavins house watching their dog Rio. Its real easy to watch Rio since shes a toy poodle so shes not nearly as active as my dog Kelly. Shes just sleeps while I watch dvds. Lol. I watched the Dark Knight, Bee Movie, and Wall E so far...

I ran the marathon yesterday with a time of 3 hours and 43 minutes. Only improved my time by 3 minutes from last year but Im still stoked with the result. I was actually afraid that I wasn't going beat my time from last year because I didn't really train at all this year. Ended up finishing 712th overall and was the 177th Hawaii finisher. The winner was a guy from Kenya who finshed with a time of 2 hours and 14 minutes and became $44,000 richer. Thats so crazy! They are basically running 5 minutes miles for the whole 26 mile race. For the a person from Japan named Shimahara won the race with a time of 2 hours and 32 minutes and earned $40,000 for the win.
Tried to go surfing yesterday after I ran but I couldnt really surf. The hardest part was standing up. haha. I have finals this week so looks like Im not going to be surfing this week. I actually just took my physics final today and it wasn't as hard as i thought so I think i did ok. Just 3 more finals to go.
