Down by the River

Yesterday I took Cassie, our neurotic, hard to walk, border collie for her first walk down by the river. We have two rivers that run through Eugene. The Willamette River and the McKenzie River. Both are absolutely beautiful and easily accessible. Yesterdays adventure was along the Willamette River. There is a beautiful bike/walk/run path along both sides of the river. This is one of my favorite places to go for a run. ...more

Running on Empty

It was a long day today.The only break I had ? I managed to catch the early express train home and that was an unexpected surprise,The trick was, after I came home, to walk the girls, then I came back in to make us a somewhat healthy dinner. After all, I started the day with heat to tweak my metabolism. I went and filet a bone in chicken breast or two.We had a baked sweet potato and mixed vegetables. There has to be some thought to make a “healthy” dinner so I am going to give it a shot.We’ll see how far this goes....more

Cows & Chows

Now that the kids are back in school, it is time for me to head back to the gym and out on the roads.  I am trying to reorganize my life around the nine hours I have free five days a week.  A couple of days a week I go to the gym and swim, the other three days I walk…with my dog…he needs the exercise more than me.  Huey has lounged around all summer, and he is becoming fat and lazy.  To think he was a skeleton when he showed up on our doorstep 10 months ago....more
