The Long Run

The San Francisco marathon is on Sunday and I'm looking forward to escaping the heat of Portland for the weekend. The best part of a big event though is the training it motivates you to do. Scott and I have been getting out every weekend now since April for a long run. We run almost exclusively on the trail and our runs of 10-20 miles have taken us to some beautiful places. Here we're at the 10-mile turn around on the Eagle Creek trail in the Gorge. Sam joined us for most of the runs. In Portland we are blessed to have miles of trails minutes away in Forest Park and many miles more in the surrounding forests.

4/16 (10 miles) - Shuttle for Paria Canyon trip
4/22 (10K + 6 miles) - Cherry Festival 10K in the Dalles and a 6 mile out back along the Deschutes River
4/29 (13 miles) - Eagle Creek to Tunnel Falls
5/6 (10 miles) - Wildwood
5/13 (14 miles) - Wildwood
5/20 (15 miles) - Salmon River Trail
5/27 (13 miles) - Clackamas River Trail
6/4 (13 miles) - Sauvie's Island
6/11 (13 miles) - Dirty Half Marathon in Bend
6/18 (6 miles + 8 miles) - Mt. Hood Scramble + Maple Trail loop
6/24 (20 miles) - Eagle Creek
7/1 (15 miles) - Little Nestucca River Rd. near Pacific City
7/8 (20 miles) - Wildwood; point to point
7/15 (12 miles) - Wildwood
7/22 (10 miles) - Historic Hwy from Hood River to Mosier

Bark cover

Sam's photo that appeared in the pages of Bark's last issue is now on the cover of their July/August issue up in the upper right-hand corner. We've gotten plenty of mileage out of that one photo. And I have hundreds of him...
