|Most of the Southern half of Sauvie Island is farmland.|
|My husband does all the hard training and I go along for the ride.|
|Sunrise and coffee|
|Along the 5K - nesting Ospreys!|
|Winning just by being there.|
|Love the shoes . .|
|Good bye! See you on your way back!|
|I got to enjoy the sights.|
|I wasn't the only non-runner - this group was laughing and singing the whole way.|
|As Sting would say - "Fields of Gold."|
And how did Bill's race go? Although the official temperature was cool, the sun burned brightly, with no shade for the runners and no breeze. Bill doesn't do well in the heat, he never has. So he ran the marathon but he didn't make his time and didn't qualify for Boston. After training so hard it was quite a blow, but these things happen in marathons and they say it keeps you humble. . to heck with that - Whah!
If you go: my blog just hinted at the possibilities of fun on Sauvie Island. Be sure to read all about it on their official site. For me, I would love to go back in early October to visit the pumpkin patch and hopefully the wildlife area.
Have you visited Sauvie Island? I would love to read your comments about it below! Thank you.
