Vacation, Oregon and Running!

Hello from Oregon!! 
My two goals for this vacation are to sleep and to run! My schedule this fall has been ridiculous and I am so grateful for a chance to sloooow down and take it easy this week. 
I rolled out of bed after 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep feeling like a completely new person. Absolutely amazing how refreshed I felt! Perfect start to my vacation!
I was so excited to go for my run this morning! I love exploring new places while running! I had forgotten how much I love running in the cold! So invigorating and refreshing! 
I am extremely proud of myself because I took the above picture with my nose! My gloves make using my phone while running impossible, but apparently my nose was still warm enough to do the trick and is a darn good photographer of I do say so myself. Curlypinkrunner's nose is available for hire at all your special events to capture your precious memories. 
Three miles never felt so good. I took it easy and ran music free. Oregon is really beautiful running country!! 
My trip will be spread out in several states this week, beginning in Oregon. My friend has been working at youth ranch in western Oregon all summer and is going home to Nebraska for the winter. We will be diving home, so I will be running, eating and sleeping through Washington, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming and Colorado. 
If you're not following me on Instagram-- doooo it! You can find me on Instagram @ curlypinkrunner because I am soooo original like that.
