Big Changes!

I have some BIG news to share!!

Ryan and I will be moving soon to Corvallis, Oregon!

Why I Love Oregon

I found a job there, and am so excited to be getting my career started. I think my new position is going to really be a great jumping off point for many good things to come. I will be moving in just a few weeks, and Ryan will follow shortly after. Even though it’s hard to move away from the wonderful friends we have made in Sacramento, we are excited to explore a new area.

The only time I have visited Corvallis is for my interview (although we’ve been to Portland for a few trips, and I had my HTC experience last summer)! It might take us a bit to get used to the winter rain, but I know we are going to love all the great outdoor activity! I know the area is great for running and triathlon, and I’m also looking forward to giving trail running a try.

Have ave you ever been to Corvallis, OR? Any favorite races in the area? Favorite trails to run? What about outside of training — what are the best things to do in Oregon? Where should we go and what should we do?

      Thanks Amy! The job is doing injury biomechanics for a legal services company. Should be fun! I’ll be sure to tell you ALL about my explorations!

    Seriously??? I lived in Corvallis for 7 years and am an Instructor at Oregon State University. Even though I live in Bend (two hours east) I am in Corvallis on and off for work! That is really exciting. I can give you a run-down of trails, runs, races, etc. You can start with the Corvallis Half Marathon in April. πŸ™‚ We will need to meet up. What is the new job?

      I was totally thinking of you, Kristen, when Kristen (other one) mentioned moving there, but wasn’t sure if you two followed each other’s blogs. I expect a blogger meet-up to happen soon!

      Yay! This is so exciting! We should definitely meet up!! I was initially thinking of doing the half in April, but I realized I’m going to be out of town for a good friend’s wedding that weekend. But I’m looking forward to lots of exploring through running and cycling!

    Congratulations, Kristen! This is so exciting – I hope that both the job, AND the thought of living at the epicenter of trail running – is leaving you immeasurably excited. =)
