Oregon Vacation

We will get to the full race recap soon (I hope). Things are moving fast around here with just 11 weeks to go until Ironman Lake Tahoe, work and life. Before I forget all the fun that happened last week in Oregon I thought I would take a minute to recap how fun our stay in Sunriver was. We have been there many times before, in fact my parents used to own a home there when they lived in Oregon. It was extra exciting to be there because we were celebrating Mom and Dad’s 40th anniversary and they went to Sunriver on their honeymoon =)
We arrived in Sunriver on Thursday afternoon after 22 hours of driving straight, this is for convenience, but not my favorite way to start a vacation. Feeling a little stiff we decided that a nice easy bike tour of the half marathon course was in order. I really loved riding with my family! We stopped to take pictures at the finish line:
Cory and I looking dorky in our matching jerseys.
Mom at the half marathon start line. Cory and I were excited to race our first triathlon of the year but really bummed that mom's big race was at the same time so we didn't get to cheer for her. She did have by brother and dad chasing her all over the course so that did make me feel better.

Most of the day Friday was spent getting ready for the race and Saturday was spent getting a bad sunburn out on the course. She ended up beating her time goal and taking 2nd in her age group!

Sunday it was my mom, Cory and my turn to cheer from my bother and dad who raced in the 5k
They both did a great job, Erik took first in his group!!!
After their race we celebrated by eating at the lodge and getting a family photo.
The rest of the day was spent doing some work (for me) and packing up, Daisy spent her time well too
Next to the beach and a training update!

  3. I live in Oregon and love Sunriver. Anything to get away from the rainy cloudy gray skies of the Valley. Athletes inspire me as I slowly work to recover some physical stamina and health after a few years of decline, surgeries, etc. Glad to find your blog. Fitolddog helped me get started:
