Summer Highlights

It’s hard to believe that summer is winding down. Doesn’t really feel like it today with these 80 degree  temps. I thought I’d play catch up today and share some of my favorite things that have happened this summer! 

Bootcamp- This is by far my biggest highlight! I (finally) started my own bootcamp business here in Portland and have been doing outdoor bootcamps on the Eastern Prom all summer long. Great weather, sunrises, and workouts with fun people!

Beachin’ It

Probably my all time favorite summer activity is the beach. With all the sunny 80 degree days I had no shortage of beach this summer and tried to go at least once a week!

Hiking

This is one thing I wish that I did more of this summer! Angus and I headed to the mountains and hiked Mount Willey, swam in the river, and had a great snack afterwards at the Sunrise Shack (highly recommend if you’re in the white mountains!)

Beach to Beacon

I ran my first Beach to Beacon road race and got a 10k PR of 51:03.

Minneapolis Vacation

A the end of August Angus and I took a trip to Minneapolis. He was going for work and I decided to tag along and visit some of my friends that I made when I went to school there freshman year. It was a great long weekend of friends, food, and some exercise, too!

Celebrating Our Third Anniversary

September 1st marked our 3rd (!!!) anniversary! We had a great evening with Thai food from Boda, watching a great sunset, and cupcakes from the same recipe as our wedding cake!

Joel and Emmie’s Wedding

Over labor day weekend we headed north to camp Winnebago to celebrate Angus’ stepbrother’s wedding. It was a beautiful wedding by the lake with great food and music and fun to hang out and play in the lake the following day.

Maniac Triathlon

Last weekend I competed in the Maniac Triathlon, which quickly turned into the Maniac duathlon due to some high surf. 1 mile run on the beach, 15 mile bike, 3 mile run to finish. There was also a crazy thunderstorm on the bike which made conditions quite challenging. I was sad that there was no swim since that is one of my stronger legs in triathlon but I still managed to place 7th overall and win my age group.
