Jesse returned from California a few days early this week and I was glad to have a few nights with him before his crazy weekend work schedule commenced. He went climbing with some friends on Friday night while I took in a ‘hawkey’ game with my lovely friend, Shawna.
It was a playoff game between the Portland Winterhawks and Vancouver Giants at the
Moda Center Rose Garden. We had pretty great seats, actually. Gotta love Groupon! The Stanley Cup even made an appearance – apparently Portland was the first city to have its name engraved on the cup. You learn somethin’ new everyday.
Saturday was really casual, with a 5 mile run with my running buddy followed by some Po’Shines goodness in Kenton (though I am routinely disappointed with their fruit bowl. I need to stop ordering it to end the cycle). Jesse and I had a pretty good run on Wildwood on Sunday afternoon. He has a 50K coming up this Saturday so we made running a priority and took a good portion of the afternoon to get in 13 miles. It was such a perfect running day and Forest Park was gorgeous, per usual.
On the walk to the car, Jesse spotted this ridiculous request, which we had a good laugh about!
Some good effort there, Portland! Love it.
