Taking the Top Deck on Saturday's Run


Saturday morning was one of those, when you just don't want to drag yourself out of bed and hit the road... A morning when the desire to pull the covers over your head and turn off the alarm and just sleep until you wake up naturally from thirst or hunger is all you want...

But despite your reluctance, you get up, get out, and run.

And it was a beautiful morning, full of dynamic clouds, catching up with friends, and taking a trip across the top deck of the Steel Bridge on foot for the first time in my Portland life.  Turns out, the view from up there is pretty nice.


I am so grateful to live in such an inspiringly beautiful city.   She makes early morning long runs... easy.  :)
