6.80 miles in Manzanita Beach, Oregon (runner profile)

Beautiful morning for a race on the beach. Wind was minimal after a really windy afternoon yesterday. The only negative was that the 5K turnaround wasn’t manned and people raced between 4 and 5 miles. Oh well. Stuff happens turned out to be a beautiful beach workout.

How far are you from Bend? Michael and I are doing a 10K in Redmond June 15. Low key race. Why don’t you join us if it is not too far? 6/2 6:48 pm
I’m about 150 miles from Bend so I won’t make the race the 15th but stay in touch. We’ll connect for a race up here somewhere, sometime. 6/3 11:54 am
Sounds like a plan. You don’t get as much snow as Bend? They had a lot this year. 6/3 5:49 pm

I just realized I didn’t enter my miles from Bolder Boulder. Between the move from California to Oregon and four days of train travel to and from Colorado I’ve lost track of what’s what. Hopefully I’ll get back to somewhat “normal” training and “racing”. I had a unique race weekend with 12 entries in Saturday’s race and 50,000 Monday. (Mon 27) / Total Miles 832.42 since 8/22/18
