I am a girl who loves mountains, changing seasons, running, true backpacking, strong coffee, and knitting with high quality yarn.

When something bad happens, you have three choices: let it define you, let it destroy you, or let it strengthen you.

The purpose of life is to discover and develop your gift. The meaning of life comes from sharing your gift with others. - David Viscott

New event in PNW

Hi, all

Bushwhacker Burke is retired and bored, so not only he joined the team of RD's for PCT50 and Hundred in the Hood, he had also created a new event. It might be simple to begin with, but it's a start.

This is Active link.

Offical website for race(s).
This is a link to a website he created for this run and the future races he plans to "make up". Pier Park 6hr run is the first one on agenda, and the link is on top right corner. There you will find a downloadable application. Or you can sing up through Active.com either from first link or by going straight HERE

In short: it is a 1 mile loop in Pier Park in North Portland. There will be 6 hr run, 3 hr run, 10k and kid's run. Walkers are welcome. The event takes place on Saturday, February 7th.

Don't shoot the messenger, but I am a communication person, although if you're interested in logistics, you better email Mike at bw_retired@yahoo.com

Hope you come and join for some dreary winter fun.
