Despite the fact that I have been spending almost every awake moment this summer hiking and writing about hiking, I'm still squeezing in some running-my second great passion. Heather and I ran in the recent Ferndale Old Settlers 5k in Ferndale, WA. Great time. The course was long- 3.25 miles- but who cares. I even placed first in my age division. Yep-there weren't too many competitive runners there. Anyhow, read next month's Northwest Runner magazine (and check out the new website) for a full account of running in Ferndale.
