Up and Running

My blog is alive again!
Some dumb internet evil-does hacked into my blog this week and made it all kinds of sick.
I apologize to everyone who was greeted with a malware warning and thank all you kids who sent me tweets and emails letting me know what was up. After trying to fix it myself and realizing my technology skills are best when limited to pushing the “toast” button on a toaster, I solicited the help of an expert, and I am finally back up and running.
And also in Portland!
Up and ready to be running.
I got in late last night and my amazing triathloning hostess (who lives in this amazing city with her amazing husband and amazing beagle) scooped me up from the airport and delivered me straight to one of the 1,826 brew pubs in Portland.
See those tall doughy sticks of perfection? Those are fresh out of the oven pretzels the size of my arm. With warm beer/cheese dipping sauce. Served next to my locally brewed imperial IPA. Yeah, I was in heaven. Which I expressed out loud rather frequently, alongside many thank yous to my Portland running friend.
To which Alisa kept responding: “you told me you wanted beer and carbs!”
This girl is amazing. I also woke up to find a spread of multiple kinds of bread products ready to be peanut buttered, because in addition to my trip out here for work, I’m spending this morning running a marathon!
On trails. It’s going to be a good day out here in Portland.
After loving every second of last weekend’s trail 50k, and getting stupid giddy excited for the 50 miler, I decided one last weekend of long running in the woods was exactly what I need to toe the line in Can Lake bursting with excitement to run the race.
Catch you all on the other side of 26.2 and good luck to everyone else running and racing this am!
