Every time I plan to run in the Gorge, I say to myself, "This is going to be pretty hard." Every time I finish a run in the Gorge, I say to myself, "That was a lot harder than I thought it would be!" There was nothing fast about it, but I still got through 22 miles with around 6000' of uphill. The first 11 were pretty much all up hill on the Herman Creek Trail followed by a couple nasty climbs on the PCT before a very steep and pretty technical descent. My calves held up thewhole run, even though they got a little twitchy! This makes me feel a lot better about the Hood 50K in July since it doesn't have anywhere near that amount of uphill! It was a foggy, semi-damp day, pretty typical around here, but this run made me love the PNW all over again!

I also obliterated a Chocolate Cherry Shake from Burgerville when I finished!

A nice little hike on the Herman Creek Trail out near Cascade Locks. This was a very quiet, green little hike that meandered across some pretty little streams and a couple of nice waterfalls.

Three days to the big 50K! You know what that means... EAT ALL THE CARBZ! :)
Choose from a 50K, 15 mile or 4 mile route, all run on the scenic trails throughout Smith Rock State Park. There’s even a free kids race.

I capped off a long weekend of running with a leisurely hike at Duncan Creek on the Washington side of the Gorge. It was a short hike, but the creek is very pretty.

+Andrej R The Columbia River Gorge is amazing! I feel incredibly fortunate to live close to it, and it's been a great motivator for me to get out there and run - despite the gruesome uphills!

+G.A. Smith It was a gloomy, overcast day, but those are the best days to go out and enjoy the creeks and falls! Everything seems so much greener!

If warped values are the price of a vicarious thrill, so be it!
Introduction
Grew up in the US Midwest, spent a couple years in DC and now live in Portland, OR where I'm enjoying the beautiful Pacific Northwest. 

I enjoy running, biking, hiking, reading, travelling (from road trips to overseas excursions), craft beers, wine, scotch, whisky, cooking and food. I can't hold my drink like I used to, but I get an "A" for effort!
