Even (ol Griz) and Gayle are on the Big Island and got to experience the 6.6 earthquake first hand while waiting for a 5k run to start on Sunday morning. They were right down by the water and said everyone started running up hill in case there was a tsuami. Apparently the 5k went on and Gayle won her age group. Griz is gearing up for the Hawaii Ironman next weekend and is in better spirits now that he is in Kona.
I am enjoying the fall weather and went on a hike Saturday morning at the Fitton Green area in Corvallis with my new friend K. She knows a lot of the trails from mtn biking so she's showing me some areas I've never seen. We enjoyed dinner at her house last night and I decided that Bill and I are going to host a Halloween party! Yeah! Also got out on the disc golf course briefly and had friends over for pizza so it was a busy and delightful weekend.
I got into my sewing room and started on some hats to sell next weekend at the Beaver Fever Duathlon. Hopefully it will be cold and I'll make some extra cash, I just booked a girl's weekend to Vegas so I can network at the Silverman triathlon next month so I could use some nickels for the slots. After a flurry of sewing I took a nap on the couch with the cat and dog while listening to CNN coverage of the earthquake. For once, I was glad I wasn't in Hawaii!
