Bree Brown • endurance running
Let’s be honest: The only reason the most accomplished female runner on the island hasn’t been honored in this space before is because of a clear case of East Hawaii bias.
After winning the Kona Marathon for a third consecutive time, she finally gets her due – and with gusto.
Favorite movie: The Karate Kid and Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken
Favorite food: Spicy Mexican
Favorite thing about running: All the places on the island we get to see that cars can’t get to, and getting there with my trail friends
Favorite athlete: That’s so hard. So many people on the Big Island inspire me: hubby Mikey, Justin Young, Kawika Singson, Patrick Stover, Jacob Fansler, Billy Barnett and Grant Miller. They are the only people I know happy to run at 2 a.m.!
Favorite spot on the Big Island: Waimanu. Anywhere in the valleys is my favorite spot on Earth.
