Saturday I had the great opportunity to head out for a long run with Kim from (Just) Trying is for Little Girls.
We went on a preview of the Eugene Marathon (half) course and then added on a few more miles to give us a solid 16+ to make it a distance PR for Kim. It was awesome... we talked the whole entire time and the mileage flew by.
It's really going to be hard to go back to doing long runs "all by me onesies" again. If you'd like a better recap of our time & the course, you should check out Kim's post HERE. Although, if you check it out, you'll notice we had a slightly different version of how I handled the "big hill". Here is mine:
Monday we picked Dan up from the airport and spent some time in Portland were we stopped by the Portland Temple to show the kids where we were married:
It was cold and rainy and they were power washing the sidewalks so we didn't stay long. We headed to Woodburn where we had lunch before hitting up the outlet mall where I hooked myself up with these bad boys (Pearl Izumi Streak) for a substantial discount. They are more of a racing flat/speed workout shoe and will be happily welcomed into my shoe rotation.
