Jonathan Lyau, Hall of Famer

When Jon Lyau received the phone call in October from the Honolulu Marathon telling him he was going to be this year's inductee into the Hall of Fame, he thought it was a joke.

Hall of Famers, he figured, are over-the-hill, retired runners so far past their prime they don't even consider trekking the 26.2 miles. Lyau, meanwhile, is a 45-year-old who almost always stands atop the Honolulu Marathon's pedestal as the fastest runner from Hawaii. The former McKinley High distance star has won 15 of the last 16 kamaaina awards, including the last three.
