Northwest Running and Triathlon Calendar - October 2013 - Halloween Races and the Beaver Fever!

For the first time ever, the late Fall Beaver Fever Duathlon will now have a Triathlon as well!

Wowza. That's pretty late for a tri. I can't think of any other triathlons in the Willamette Valley (or in the NW?) that take place that late in the year. Can you? The swim will take place in the Philomath City Pool and there will be both a road bike division and a mountain bike division (although this year, everybody will ride on the roads) and the run leg will be on a XC course.

This should be a fun one...but it's almost sold out, so get on it now!

Let's Race!

  1. So totally off topic - but thought you'd enjoy this review:

  2. Books are NEVER off topic. Not here.

    I'd say you're pretty much at the top of the writing game when Margaret Atwood is giving your latest work a stellar review. And yes, I already had Doctor Sleep on hold at the library. I can't wait to read it.

    I have to admit, I haven't read everything King has written over the last ten years, but how could you not want to revisit the amazing plot lines and characters from The Shining?
