I gave myself a goal at the beginning of 2017. The goal was to sign up & complete all the virtual events hosted by Hogwarts Running Club this year.
2017 Race Recap – Helvetia Half
Last year I took the plunge and decided to try the Helvetia Half Marathon. I had such a good time, I did it again this year.
Spring 2017 Poultry and Homesteading Faire
It has been a couple years, but I finally made it back to be an Oregon Poultry Swap vendor. OPS has grown a lot over the years and are now known for more than just poultry. It makes for a fun event. There was, of course, many chickens and other poultry for sale. Also rabbits and pigs. Plants, honey, homemade soap, and craft items, too.
2017 Race Recap – Race for the Roses
I’m trying to limit the events I sign up for this year – mainly because they get spendy. But…
2017 Race Recap – Shamrock Run 15K
My first legit race of 2017 – the Shamrock Run in downtown Portland. In 2014, Farmer John & I ran the 5K. We had a great time, but I haven’t ran it again… until now. And, I upped my game. I ran/walked the hilly 15k.
2016 Race Recap – Bridge of the Gods Half Marathon
In August I completed the Bridge of the Gods Half Marathon. It was an event I’d heard about and thought about doing. So, when my friend, Molly, asked if I would do it with her for her first half marathon, I said, “Of course!” The actual Bridge of the Gods spans the Columbia River connecting Washington & Oregon. Recently the bridge has gained popularity due
2016 Race Recap – Helvetia Half Marathon
The Helvetia Half Marathon had been on my bucket list for awhile now. However, the course made me nervous. I had heard it’s hilly and difficult. A friend was interested in doing it and asked if I would do it with her. Of course, I said I would do it – hills and all.
2016 Race Recap – Vernonia Half Marathon
The Vernonia Half Marathon marked my 5th half in a year, as well as my 5th half marathon ever. Last May I ran my first half at Disneyland. Apparently the enjoyment outweighed the pain and agony since I keep going back for more. I commemorated #5 by wearing the same outfit as I wore at my first one. Trust me, I felt like I needed
2016 Race Recap – Y2K 10K
Saturday I completed my first run event of 2016. It was a 10K hosted by Oregon Road Runners Club. It rained for weeks, then school was out for the holidays, so the majority of my training was on the elliptical throughout December. I was unsure how this run would go since it had been awhile since my running shoes actually hit pavement. But, I did
2015 Race Recap – Garlic Fest 10K
This is my third year running at the Garlic Fest in North Plains, however this was my first time taking part in the 10k. I sometimes like doing the smaller races that aren’t all hyped up and crazy. But, mainly I chose to do this one because it’s timed. In about 2 months I have to submit an official time to Run Disney for my
