A little bit ago, I got to spend the night in Eugene, where I had an awesome time catching up with some of my closest friends at the 2nd Annual Favorite Things Party. I came away with some good stuff and had a lot of fun in the mean time. I also learned that a lot of people have told me stuff about them that they haven't told other people and that in general I have a pretty good grasp on figuring people out. This great knowledge helped me score big in a "guess who's deep dark secret we're revealing" kind of game.
I stayed the night in Eugene with Heather so that we could hit up Mt. Pisgah for some much needed Eugene trail running time, while her kiddos took care of Euan for me. We had planned for around 14 miles but ONLY did 12 1/2 which is the longest I've gone since Hippie Chick last spring. It was awesome...

My fun weekend was followed up by Veteran's Day, which Dan had off from work, so I was able to enjoy another happy running day outside. It didn't quite compare to Eugene trail running, but it was outside in the rain and on a bit of trails and made my heart happy too.
Then, this past weekend, I went on a run with two new running friends that was also great. Full of plenty of hills and a little view of the bay... although we had to hurry by that part because it was next to a water treatment plant that smelled oooooh sooooo bad. All, in all, running has been going well and I've been getting outside enough that it makes the Stanley running bearable.
