Biking Oregon summer of 2009
Spencer and I wanted to do something to enjoy the summer. Last summer I left him for 6 weeks and went to play in Greece. This summer no Mediterranean vacations for me! I want to really spend some quality time together.
Quality time for means VACATION!!!
For our epic 2009 summer vacation the Stein-mann family (party of 2) has decided to bike along the Oregon coast.
Yes that is right! CYCLING all along the coast. I'm so excited! The only thing is I'm not a biker. I. am. not. a. biker! I ran a few marathons in what feels like was another life but now I'm mostly sedentary and can't fit into my skinny clothes. I've got roughly 2 months to get some miles into my legs and hopefully that will put me back into most of my wardrobe too.
It seems very ambitious but I am always up for an adventure and it will give me some motivation to train.
The training started to day and included biking 1 mile up city creek canyon (my tush hurts like h#%1!) and buying a book from Barnes & Nobel called biking Oregon.
Wish me luck and if you are from Oregon please pass along some advice!
Oregon here I come.
