NoPo unofficial half marathon in Bandon, OR

This wasn’t an official race, but a fun run (13.1 miles) organized by two of my friends in my NoPo Run Club running group  (NoPo = North Portland). A bunch of us drove down for the weekend to Bandon.

The “course” was gorgeous and the weather was nice on the way out, but a little chilly on the way back. But the sun was out the entire time, so no complaints there!

It was also the first “race” that I ran as part of Team SunRype.

Even though it wasn’t an official race, our amazing Toni did print up bibs for us and even surprised us with medals!  Afterwards we got some delicious seafood for lunch and then grilled out for dinner. After dinner we were all so exhausted from the days activities that it ended up being a pretty early night.

Michael and I took the scenic route on the way back and stopped in Florence for lunch (super cute little town!) and Salem to see the cherry blossoms (we were a few days too late…there were still some, but they weren’t at their peak any longer) and then couldn’t drive by the outlet mall without popping in!  All in all, a fun filled weekend getaway!
