Full size brick


Sat started at 7 with Katy, Frank and Frank number 2, Vanessa, Gil, Audrey and had a pleasant 61 mile ride out past Sisters Oregon. I had the only flat of the group but was prpared so semi quick change. Even stopped in Sisters for a coffee and bagel ( never see that happening with my usual hammerfest group).

so at the leisurly pace we were going we did the 61 miles in a little over 4 hours. So wehn I started the run I felt FRESH!!!!!

about a 5 minute transition while folks grabbed clothes and water etc and off we went. Up the ruver trail to the end near Mt. Bachelor village when we lost Vanessa to a sore knee ( oh yeah that is farther than Frank1 and Audrey got as they bailed after the bike.

So we were down to four. Katy, Gil, Frank and myself. everyone in the group had run a half marathon before but only Frank and I had done the distance after riding that far so we knew the two of us were solid. Katy is a natural machine so not worried about her and for Gil this was her event to see if she could....and she did with flying colors. we ended up running 13.35 miles in a little over 2 hours and thanks to my garmin 305 we all checked it the whole way to see where we were at.........................." how far?........10.2..........................how far?......................11.1..........."

you get the idea.

great BBQ after and a great training day and a great day out with friends. anytime someone invites you to a ride/run with a killer BBQ at the end with a keg.......duh!!!


oh yeah

What a day, Drew. Nice work.
How much do you love your 305? Now that I have one, I'm not quite sure how I ever survived without it.
