Hot date last night. Yup, we don't get too terribly dressed up for hot dates here in Portland, Oregon. Well, at least I don't. Jeans, a tight shirt and some heels work just fine. Oh, and we made a stop at REI for some Brooks trail shoes. I couldn't wait to try them on before our next stop. Funny thing about the Northwest Portland neighborhood we were in...nobody even thought it odd to find my sitting in the middle of the sidewalk as I tried on my shoes and filled the night air with my cackle of a laugh.
So now, I'm just back here pretending to use the bathroom again before my husband and I head out to the Wildwood Trail for a long and beautiful trail run in our new Brooks! I. Love. Brooks. And alone time with my husband. His parents are the BEST to take the kids for the night. I'm running out of time back here...it isn't believable anymore so here are some random bullets:
- I really did write for hours in my running fort yesterday. It was pretty great. I even made some new goals as a runner and got some BIG dreaming in. I'm so excited for Boston training.
- Met lots of runners last night from a running group called the Red Lizards and the Nike Run Club. Charging!
- We might get a treadmill for our garage. Can only imagine how this will help me fit in the miles for solid Boston training. I want a nice one. Any suggestions?
- Who is racing today? Please fill me in.
We are off for as long of a trail run as we can fit in. I've already cut into it by at least five minutes with my "Fake Pooping" back here. And here I thought that once my fort came, the bathroom writing days would be over.
Pictures and Video of trail run will come soon so you too can feel like you are running in the gorgeous Pacific Northwest but here is a picture:
