I always thought it would be cool to go to Moscow Russia. Anyways, I'm in Moscow now... Moscow Idaho that is. Hitchhiking and traveling went well to get here. I acquired a ride with and old friend to Pendleton Oregon from Gunnison. Then i hitched the approximate 200 miles to Moscow, which is right on the Washington and Idaho border. I'm staying with Rich and Evann Tveden... and their cat Oliver. Rich is a great college running buddy. Evann is his wonderful wife. Oliver is... he is their... their cat. As for next week's 50 mile race in Bellingham... I'm feeling strong and ready for a good effort. Solid! Let the pounding commence.
