Isn’t summer suppose to be slow and consist of easy days in a hammock by a pool or body of water?
I’ve had an incredibly busy week. Three days out-of-town for a work training and then, after one night at home, a trip to Central Oregon for the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival.
The highlight earlier in the week was an amazing little trail running adventure at Silver Falls State Park in the Willamette Valley, near Salem, Oregon. Oh my, amazing! And the perfect way to finish the day after a 4 AM wake up call, an hour-and-a-half drive, and 8 hours in training!
Tomorrow morning I will be running the Pacific Crest Weekend Sports Festival half marathon. At packet pickup this afternoon it was 99 degrees. EEK!
My race strategy is to just finish! I’m not too concerned with my time or “racing”. From what I saw, I’m going to enjoy the course and the scenery in my favorite part of Oregon! Plus, I get to support my friend who is walking the half. It is her first ever event and I’m so excited for her!
I hope you are staying cool and enjoying summer in a hammock somewhere!
