After last weekend’s cold run, here’s hoping this Saturday is a little balmier! Join Coach Jim and his supportive group of pace group leaders and runners for a total of 11.5 miles on Saturday, November 22, 2014.

The run will start and finish twice from Pizza Roma. That’s right, two starts and two finishes!

First up will be an 8.5 mile loop, followed by an out-and-back of three miles.

Heading through the Woodstock neighborhood, you’ll run east for a few blocks before turning back and going back to west on SE Steele. After skirting Reed College’s campus, you’ll run down through Eastmoreland and then cross McLoughlin on SE Bybee and head into the Sellwood neighborhood. Then you’ll hop on the Springwater Trail, climbing through Tideman Johnson park and back up SE Cesar Chaves Blvd to return to Pizza Roma.

After a quick potty stop, the group will start on the out-and-back; SE 52nd and Powell out and Powell and SE 52nd back. This last three miles will feel quick and get you back in time to order a pizza pie for lunch!

Be sure to like Coach Jim on facebook to get to know his “team” and get more information, support, and suggestions about whether or not you want to wear capri tights or full length this weekend.

We started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. We also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support local race organizers.
