Dirty Half Race

running race dirty half

The Dirty Half was on Sunday in the Phil’s Trail area. It was a beautiful day! Perfect running weather. This is such a fun race running in our beautiful forest. Bend’s Max King came in first place, no surprise there! Good job, Max! I was able to shave off one minute of my time, coming in almost an hour after Max…hey, at least I finished.

A lot of fun things coming up in Bend…the Oregon Senior Games – ages 50 plus can participate in these games – although 50 seems a bit young these days…especially in Bend where some of the 50+ crowd are in awesome shape!
