Maui was incredible! I can't even properly explain how amazing the trip was. Everyone needs to visit at least once no matter the cost or time spent getting to/from there.
We did a lot over our 10 days in Maui. It wasn't all laying around drinking fruity drinks; though I could have spent a couple more days doing just that ;) Between 2 camera's we took close to 500 pictures. A bit much I know. So I'll recap our 10 days with a taste of those pics... settle in this may take awhile.
The 10K started 2 hotels down from mine in front of the Four Seasons. It was a smallish race with a simple course on paved roads and through neighborhoods. The swag was okay; a cotton shirt and reusable bag. They seemed to put all their effort into the post-race party. The buffet was ridiculous!
Swag and number
mile 3 - sandwiched between the ocean and a golf course. rough I know!
nasty sweaty but happy I did some sort of activity over vacation!
view from the post race party at the four seasons
wake-up call before 3 am to catch the beautiful sunrise at the top of a volcano
then we biked down the volcano at speeds of 15 - 20 mph which freaked me out! luckily there were a few breaks to enjoy the scenery
rafting on the ocean - it hurt to hang on for dear life but was ridiculously fun. The snorkeling was just okay but we finished it off with seeing turtles and spinner dolphins. AWESOME!

laying around enjoying fruity drinks and the pools/beachesenjoying the incredible sunsets. I love how everyone stopped what they were doing to take it in every night.
Below are most of the pictures if you are really into seeing too many pictures of sunsets/sunrise, the road to hana, the helicopter tour, and us being fools/taking self portraits.
