1,500 miles, 27 hours drive road trip over 4 days to Portland and back.
Going North, we stopped in Ashland, Eugene, Portland with a visit of the falls, downtown, and of course, Voodoo Donuts.
On the way back, we started from Cannon beach, stopped for cheese lunch at the Tilamook cheese factory in Tilamook bay, slept in Gold Beach, and visited Jedediah Smith Redwood State Park.
Good times at the Maker Fair.
Visit of Boston to run the 119th Boston Marathon. Conditions were far from perfect with some wind and rain for some of the course but I still managed to run it in 3:15:34 or 7:28/mile. I am very happy to have reached this goal I set to myself what feels a long time ago now. Sharing it with Alicia makes it even more special.
Today was the third time I ran the KP San Francisco half marathon. I ran it in 2010 (1:34:27) and 2011 (1:35:23) so it had been 4 years since I had taken part in this event.
With the new job and trips to Mexico and Argentina at the end of the year, my training has not been as good as it should be so I was not expecting a PR. No real goal though I wanted to finish faster than all the coworkers that I convinced to sign up for the event.
The weather was great and I managed to maintain an OK pace finishing in 1:39:31. Good enough to finish ahead of all of them.
3 days exploring the Iguazu Falls from all angles

Amazing day on the lake. We highly recommend getting the Captain’s Club option as it makes it much more special.
Visit to El Chalten, in the northern part of Parque Nacional El Gliaciare for a day hike. The mountain top is Mount Fitz Roy.
Day trip to Chile to visit Torres del Paine. We got some great weather and somewhat collaborative Guanacos!
