Matt has been a travelling fiend lately (unfortunately not for “fun”). Regardless, he continues to snap some shots from his runs! This may be an easy one.
If you are looking for the most scenic half marathon in Oregon – this is it! I will admit, as a Canby resident and one of the race organizers I am a bit biased, but let me convince you. Starting on the outskirts of Canby, this half marathon* starts out fast with a downhill right at the beginning. Continue reading

One of my running goals this year is to run in a half marathon each month. I am 2 for 2 (and will be 3 for 3 by the time this posts), but April is still staring me in the face.

St. Patrick’s Day is less than two weeks away, so that means the 2014 Luckython is just around the corner! This is one of the running extravaganzas that Uberthons puts on at The Reserve Vineyard and Golf Club where an entire golf course gets taken over for a half day or more of races ranging from 5K to 15K as well as the popular kids’ dash. New this year are cash prizes for anyone who beats the course records!

It is one of those Willamette Valley races that is close enough to not feel like I am spending my entire day away from my family, yet far enough away that it isn’t a city I run often (if at all). New running experiences just make my excitement grow! Continue reading
Ah, Oregon winter weather. You can be so fickle. On Friday afternoon, it was sunny and almost 60 degrees. Less than two days later, at the start of the Fort Vancouver 6K/10K/15K run, it was windy, rainy, and just barely above freezing.
Well, that’s what cold weather gear is for. I dressed in a longsleeve tech shirt, Brooks running jacket to block the rain, hat, thin gloves, running tights, shorts, and wool/merino socks. Would it be enough to resist the elements?
