“Run, forest, run!”

I have been waiting for a post to come along in which I could use two of my favorite things: Running, and poorly timed Tom Hanks jokes.  Well, here it is…

Welcome to my backyard…Forest Park, Oregon.

Forest Park

Nature-lovers, running-lovers, dog-lovers, and hippies unite! This place is THE place.

This was our run today. The sun was shining (a rare occurrence for Portland), and the birds were chirping. I felt like I had fallen into a Disney movie.

So here’s your recipe for a pretty solid run: 1 Forest + 2 Friends + 1 pair of shoes that you don’t mind ruining = good old fashioned, “kids playing in the mud” type fun.

You don’t even feel like you’re exercising! Now that’s a campaign many of us could get behind.

Ok, maybe it did feel like exercise…

But I’m with Forrest!

Happy Running!
