Studio now has a new chopping machine. We are doing away with exacto blades after an injury was sustained at the cutting table last week.
The annual studio golf retreat was held at Broadmoore Golf course this year. With tempertures in the 90’s, there was a great need to cool down. Unfortunately, the only refreshment available was beer. The course management was understanding to this dilema and pretty much let us do what came naturally. Pee.
After a long hard day on the golf course it is absolutely imperative to quench your pallete to expedite physical recovery from such an effort. Again the only refreshment available was beer.
Job well done.
This past weekend was the annual running of the Hood to Coast relay. Kelly Wright, 12.2 graduate and studio artist for Target, ran the event with her team from Nike, Hot Snakes. They ran from Timberline lodge on Mt Hood to Seaside in 26 hours, 29 minutes and 22 seconds. An average pace of 8:04 per mile.
Hood to Coast is more than a tour of Honey Buckets scattered along the highway. It’s a true test of stamina and teamwork. The 197 mile (317 km) Hood to Coast course consists of 36 legs, of which each team member must run at least three in rotation. The legs vary in length from 3.52 miles (5.66 km) to 7.79 miles (12.53 km), and the terrain for each leg can vary from level terrain to steep uphills and/or downhills. Consequently, a runner may run between 13.61 miles (21.90 km) and 19.68 miles (31.67 km). Teams in Hood to Coast must complete the course within a 31 hour time limit (an average of 9 minutes 30 seconds a mile).
