Molokai Challenge 2016
Saturday morning came around pretty quick, it was time to start loading skis and getting ready for a 1:00 departure to Molokai. We loaded our skis onto LJ’s boat and they were ready to go, now it was just time for myself and my room mates to get our gear ready for the race and Island. Whenever I’m packing for a race I like to work from my toes up to my head with my race gear and what I need also I write down a list of all the items and tick them off as I pack them. Starting with my legs packing 2XU long tights (http://www.2xu.com/us/p/elite-mcs-compression-tights/MA3062b.html?dwvar_MA3062b_color=BLK_GLD#start=1 ) , Vaikobi V heat race shorts (http://www.vaikobi.com/products/v-sprint-paddle-short-green ), after my legs I work up to my torso packing Vaikobi V light race singlet- Australia (http://www.vaikobi.com/products/v-breathe-singlet ), Oakley M-frame glasses and finally a light hat, also getting thrown into my dry bag is sunscreen/zinc, my Garmin watch and all of my drinking systems for the race. Below is a picture of my race gear for Molokai challenge 2016.

And on a side note, I finally won something, in the lucky door prizes I walked away with the Kona Brewing Co longboard. Now it is time to go and have some time off in Maui and prepare for the Maui Jim Oceanfest that is this weekend June 4 and 5th at Kaanapali beach.
