Busy week and a quick trip

So, after promising last week to get more post up here in a timely manner, I go all silent for a week. Sorry - it was a crazy week, capped with my birthday on Friday, and a weekend blitz trip up to Bend, OR to drop off the kids with my parents. They'll be camping for a few days, and will come back next weekend.

I did manage to get a run in while in Bend - I snuck out of the motel room before my family was awake and did 5 or so miles, running past a few places I lived when I was up there and some of my other haunts. Didn't see anyone else out - but later, as we were having some Big O Bagels down by the river, I saw plenty. Apparently Bendites aren't as early risers as I am these days...

Other weekend highlights included stops at Deschutes Brewery and Bend Brewing Company, for excellent sets of tasters and wonderful but eerily similar salads - grilled pear at BBC and grilled peach at Deschutes, both with hazelnuts. Oh, and a classic car show, despite having left Reno with the intention of getting AWAY from Hot August nights...

More posts during the week next week, I promise...

That looks like a great loop! :) Nice to be home for short while?

I wouldn't call Bend home, but it sure was cool to have a look around the place...
