A nice 3.4 mile run
I ran 3.4 miles and followed the path I used on Thursday, but because I didn't get lost, I was able to go further before I turned around. On the way out (1.7 miles) I did a lot of jogging and probably ran about half the distance. On the way back, however, I did less running, because I had to go up some bigger hills, and I walked up.
The sun was shinning, and the temperature was in the high 50s (F). A great day to enjoy the beautiful Oregon country.
