Much has happened since SOB in late July. There’s a reason my race report came a month late! We got married the week after 🙂
First: a pre wedding group run to the top of Hobart Peak, via the PCT. It wouldn’t be our wedding without a run. There were quite a few guests that wanted to run or hike, imagine that. Joe led and I held up the read (while exposing my rear, apparently. I should be more aware of my shorts flap).
The one wedding photo I will allow on here, just because it’s my favorite so far:
Of course there was a mini honeymoon after the wedding. To the Olympic Peninsula! Packed with camping, hiking, and running. Here is a view from Hurricane Ridge:
It’s odd to think that these mountains are under 10,000 feet, including Mount Olympus. I’m looking excited to see a waterfall. Waterfalls are hard to come by where I live.
These are all photos from a giant 18 mile run/hike (starting at the Sol Duc something trail) that Joe and I thought we could do in a reasonable time (we did). We were having beer and delicious seafood by 6pm while everyone else that we encountered on the trail took 3 days to complete what we did in 7 hours.
We did run into a mountain goat and her twins kids (are goat babies ‘kids’?). For some reason, her horns were shaved down and she had a blue dot on her side (spray painted?).
Of course, on our way back from a night on the beach (a very rainy/foggy night), we saw a sign for “Big Cedar”. Naturally, Joe did a nice yoga inversion while I did not do any sort of yoga…
It was an amazing trip and it was difficult to go back to reality!
