Forest Park Trail Series – January 11, 2015

Blog Post By Adam Twiggs

Running Forest Park… wow! How do I put into words how amazing this run is and how lucky I feel to live near such a beautiful, green, breathtaking area? In the past half year since I started really running this location has been one of my most favorite spots to run. Do you know that feeling you get when you meet a major celebrity? Forest Park will give you the same feeling.

Park to Park 9k, Brunch at Tommy O’s and the Winter Brewfest Recap

On Saturday, December 13th, the Vancouver Run, Grub and Chug club met for the Park to Park 9k run along the waterfront. I recently started marathon training and needed to somehow fit in a long run that weekend so I decided to run the same route twice and get in a 10 ½ mile run. I met with Mechell at 8:30am for an early morning run along the waterfront before meeting up with the RGC group for their 9k run at 9:45am.

The race was free to run, although it was suggested that you bring non-perishable food as a donation to the North County Food Bank. That morning Mechell and I stopped by the grocery store to load up on canned foods for our donation and then set the GPS to Hantwick Park.
