I had an anniversary trip near your Columbia River Highway Trail. Never thought of running 18miles of it. But very cool! Those pictures are beautiful! I miss Portland, do you guys love it?

I think I have been on that same trail, a few years ago. We were at the gorge today and the colors/trees everything is so beautiful right now!

Awesome run too - I hate you guys and your damn motivation. I think I need hypnosis.
