This post is short and sweet. Not a lot of time left to write much but I will include some pictures from this last week of running and visiting with friends. I love how just this last weekend we were running in the wet McDonald Forest in Corvallis, OR (testing out part of the McDonald Forest 50k) and today I was running in falling snow and through snow-covered evergreens. It was so hard to leave Asheville, NC and took me a good two months to snap out of my sad slump and missing my Blue Ridge Mountains but now that I'm settled, I'm more and more thankful to call Bend (and OREGON) HOME! Change takes time.
From this on Sunday (Corvallis, OR):
To this Today (Bend, OR):
|If you look down along the river on the left, you can see the foot bridge that many of you might recognize from the Deschutes River Trail.|
|My dog tried to take me on our usual back trails. Nope, wasn't happening!|
|I was thankful for this back road that leads to the trails (still a trail) because of the road tracks left for me to run on. Thank you city of Bend. Ha!|
This last weekend we drove to Corvallis to visit some of our closest friends for my birthday. Corvallis is where Oregon State University is. This is where my husband went to school and Corvallis was where we met during the summer of 2000. It was so special to show our kids some of the places where we first fell in love!

1. Does it snow where you live? Do you run in the snow?
2. Best running shoes for snow and winter running?
3. Have you taken your kids to a special spot where you and your significant other fell in love or met?
