Bridge Stride


Here we are going up the off ramp of the Fremont bridge.

“We walked too much.” That’s what Nathan said about our day today. We did walk a lot! (But I wouldn’t say it was too much). We did the Providence Bridge Stride for the first time. I wanted to participate in Bridge Pedal, but Simon is not old enough to ride in the bike trailer, so we had to settle for the 5 mile walk instead. It was still a ton of fun! We got to walk over the Fremont and Steel bridges as well as wind around down town and through some neighborhoods. Elias rode in the stroller for a good portion of the event, but walked a bit as well.

We were probably close to the last people who started the event. We arrived late as our usual fashion. (To our credit….the website said you could pick up registration materials all the way until 9am…so we thought arriving at 8:10 or so was pretty good. Turns out everyone else left the start line at 8:00). By the end, though, we had more than caught up with the pack, and enjoyed ourselves along the way. We definitely hope to do this again next year….hopefully on bikes!

Here are some pics from the top of the Fremont Bridge!
