    WOW – I can see why you run there! I actually applied to PA school in Portland (U of Oregon). I’m sure if I end up there we’ll be running the same path 🙂

      You would have loved living in Portland! So many scenic places to run or bike!

    I can sympathize. While I’ve never been able to really get in the running groove – everytime I start to make some headway (ie, maybe 1/2 mile without stopping) I would have a setback. It is rotten but all you can do is take the time you need to let your body heal right? No wonder you love running there – it looks breathtaking!

    I miss having a nice stretch of road to walk on. The areas around my apt seem full of guys who love to roll down their windows and *encourage* you while you huff and puff. It’s so miserable. All I can do right now is turn my Ipod up louder and not let it keep me from exercising.

      Isn’t that the nature of the running beast? I always got to my peak, PR’ed or had EXCELLENT progress and then something would happen. 🙁

      Isn’t that nice of your neighbors to “encourage” you ?:)
