  1. RUN
    good Champoeg Short Run with Erin 6.02 mi 01:20 13:15 pace

    Went for a run with my friend Erin who I haven't gone running with since two years ago when we did the Oregon Wine Country Half Marathon together. By a strange coincidence we both happen to b... read more

  2. #dailymission Rehydration after exercise: what's your favorite beverage? -- Water of course. If I did my job right I hydrated properly during my run so shouldn't need much else.

  3. RUN
    great Fawney Run at Champoeg 6.12 mi 01:21 13:12 pace

    Really cool run at Champoeg tonight. My heel was barking at me a bit for most of it though. I need to work in more of a recovery run after my long runs before I get back into my normal routine. ... read more

  4. RUN
    great Silver Falls Long Run 12.41 mi 03:52 18:43 pace

    Had an incredible time up at Silver Falls with my cousin Tom today. I got to show him one of my favorite trails here in Oregon visiting every fall from South Falls to Upper North Falls which I had... read more

  5. RUN
    great Champoeg Short Run 6.13 mi 01:25 13:52 pace

    Nice short run down at the park. Other than some scary mounds of ants that I thought were dirt at fist until I noticed them moving, it was a fairly uneventful but satisfying run. I haven't b... read more

    great A Perfect Short Run 6.16 mi 01:24 13:36 pace

    I don't know if it was because I was wearing my Ragnar shirt or the perfect weather. Probably both. This run was effortless. Just a nice easy pace out and back finishing up right at sunset.... read more

  7. RUN
    great Long Slow Run 11.02 mi 02:44 14:54 pace

    This was quite the adventure today. For starters it was really hot out which made running in direct sun really challenging. I started out with a nice run up the hill to Snyder Park. That's a... read more

      Lol I sometimes call my long runs "adventure runs" for that very reason. Take advantage of the distance to tour half a dozen neighborhood parks. Or run through an outdoor mall on the other side of town. :) Just be sure to tell us all about it.

    Why I run. Evening run at Champoeg State Park.

  9. RUN
    great Missing Miles at Champoeg 6.12 mi 01:24 13:41 pace

    I went down to Champoeg for my short run. I've been having a problem with my Garmin 620 where on occasion it will stop the recording though. I think it's related to the Bluetooth connec... read more

    great Champoeg Strangeness 4.1 mi 00:58 14:06 pace

    Went out for a short run at Champoeg. The legs were feeling tons better and while I kept it slow, it was moving along really well.

    I run this trail a lot and I noticed a couple guys messing aro... read more

      You should at least let the park rangers know. You never know. Nice 4 tonight.

      Being the barefoot guy on the trail, I tend to want to be sure something really is weird before I raise a flag. I'm sure I've been considered the barefoot weirdo more than once. That said, the guys kept to themselves and after we had passed them they had the toy gun out again and I could hear the plastic click of it. Had that not been the case you can be sure I'd have been finding the park rangers.

    alright Long Slow Fail 5.43 mi 01:22 15:02 pace

    I totally picked the wrong route for the heat today. The initial run up the hill was a lot of fun and I almost made it to the top before I had to walk. After that was open sky and the heat started ... read more

    great Recovery Run 4.02 mi 00:50 12:23 pace

    First run after Ragnar. Felt pretty good when I headed out but it turned out my legs were definitely sore from this weekend still. I had a nice pace going though so I went along with it. I think a ... read more

    blah Ragnar Leg 34 5.5 mi 01:25 15:27 pace

    Garmin stopped quarter of a mile early. I was really hurting by this point. I couldn't even step out of the van without winching in pain. Walking was awkward at best.

    good Ragnar Leg 28 8.03 mi 01:55 14:19 pace

    After my last leg I discovered that my quads were starting to ache. I took the opportunity to jog back and forth from the van a few times prior to starting this one. That seemed to help a lot. W... read more

    good Ragnar Leg 22 4.73 mi 01:11 14:56 pace

    Darkness falls. While it wasn't the toughest night run the team had, it was the toughest run I had since we started. Lots of uphill climb. Every time I thought I had reached the top, I roun... read more

  20. RUN
    great Ragnar Leg 10 3.17 mi 00:39 12:21 pace

    Right leg started to loosen up and give me less trouble. Heel stayed well behaved too. My longer legs were yet to come but so far things looked promising.
