North Fanno Creek 7.3 miles run (8/24/13)

Another beautiful day “in paradise”  with some “liquid sunshine” in late August!

  • Thuy (a veteran V-runner) was off for months came to visit us and went from zero to 7.3 miles with ease :-). Yeah!
  • Joon and Gary came out to see us.  Thank you both!
  • Jared’s first longest run-ever 7.3 miles!  Great job my friend.
  • Smahane showed up four consecutive times to run with us.  Yay!
  • Happy Birthday Marc. Larson.  You are da-bomb!  Ran additional miles for 13+ miles!

7 of us from SunstoneRC are ready to take on Oregon Wine Country ½ marathon next week – Sept. 1st.

13.5 miles Fanno Creek 8/10/13 :)

Totally awesome run today with the team. Temp. was around 60F in the early morning. 13.5 miles was hard at the end due to hot weather after 10AM!  We had fun/hi-five/joke/chat/hangout during breaks.  Our buddy Mark did not read the “memo” carefully and showed up at location #2.  Thank you Mark for running back to location 1 keeping Shannon company (and ran alone back to location 2 to drive home – U R Ironman indeed!).

*Shannon:  You are Awesome.  First 13.5 mile distance ever and you ran like “no tomorrow” with Mark.
*Sach/John, hope your feet’s blister will heal soon!  Thank you Phil for showing up and running with us  – the fun team – the first time!  Welcome back Ashraf after missing in action for a while 😆

Have a great weekend everyone!
