Hi, my name is Lily Mindel!

I moved to the beautiful island Kaua'i at a young age and was introduced to a new healthy way of living and the many outdoor activities possible. I started running to get in shape, and I remember it being really hard. As time went on I really fell in love with it, it became a way for me to think about my day, possibilities, and accomplishments! I look back on from when I started till now and think of how it has shaped my life for the better! I hope Outbreak Kaua'i gives you all that inspiration to go out and experience what this beautiful island has to offer!

Enjoy the website!

Hello! My name is Pierce Murphy.  

When I was two years old my parents decided to move to Kaua'i! Having the opportunity to grow up on the beautiful island was something I took for granted. I did not realize how amazing this island really was until I reached an older age. Growing up on Kaua'i led me to live a healthy and active lifestyle from an extremely young age. In my younger years I played a lot of soccer and surfed as much as I could. Once I became older (beginning of high school), I stopped playing soccer to focus on my new found passion for running. I would have never known that I was a good runner if it wasn't for soccer. I played mid-field which required a lot of running and soon realized that if I focused just on running it could possibly take me places! Throughout high school, I quickly became the best high school runner on Kaua'i and eventually became one of the best in Hawai'i. Once high school was over I decided to attend University of Colorado at Boulder to run on their division one cross county and track team. I graduated from CU in 2016 and I am now running for Skechers Performance. 

Mahalo, and enjoy what Outbreak Kauai has to offer!
