Strava Segment of the Week: hello hey hi hello

I just liked the name of this segment.

“hello hey hi hello” is a half-mile segment with 18 feet of elevation gain on Lakeview Blvd. in Lake Oswego. The start of this segment is on Lakeview Blvd at S. Shore Blvd and continues straight – no road crossings or driveways, as far as I can tell, just a neighborhood trail connector. The segment ends just before the intersection where Summit Drive meets Lakeview Blvd on a curve. If you run to that point, you’ll for sure cover the distance.

As of June 23, 2017, the course records for the “hello hey hi hello” segment are:

Women’s: Allie Keogh from May 2017, 3:24

Men’s: Steven Short from June 2017, 2:33

So, can you beat their times and become the leader of this segment? You have until Thursday, July 14 at noon to try and break the record and see your name in “lights” on Run Oregon! We’ll post a new Segment next Friday at 12.

Our segment from two weeks ago was the Cathedral Park Trail in North Portland. The previous course records still hold.

Strava is an online training and racing log for runners and cyclists. The basic account is free and requires you to create a login. There is also a premium version, but in order to run and record routes as described in this post, you do not need to subscribe to their premium service. Note that this is not sponsored by Strava, nor endorsed or supported in any way by Strava. It’s just a fun thing we’re going to do to give some speedy shout-outs to area runners and pose a challenge to those of you willing to take on their segment.

I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
