PORTLAND ROCK N ROLL HALF MARATHON
Portland Half Marathon RnR was a blast! We got SO lucky with the rain! It was raining the entire time we were waiting in our corrals but somehow, right when the race started, the rain ceased! It didn’t start up again until we were tucked safely under the beer tent enjoying our complementary @MichelobULTRA . I finished with a 2:05. My usual goal is to beat 2:00 which I can do every once in a while but hoping to do it much more often! Need to train harder!
One of the coolest parts of this race was meeting up with fellow Tweeter Bill Clayton @exhalebill. See you in Seattle next month Bill!
Notable Runner: Girl Running the entire Half Marathon carrying a huge American Flag. She was dressed in Red, White, and Blue and carried that flag with such pride and honor. Her running shirt was in support of our wonderful, selfless, heroes, Our Military Veterans. I did not get to meet her but loved hearing runners shout their support.
We really enjoy Portland and will be back for the PDXmarathon in October. Definitely will find me at Stumptown Coffee at least a couple times a day! Didn’t have time this trip but last year I really enjoyed the rain forest area and the Rose Testing Center. I did however, maintain myself and did NOT devour any Voodoo doughnuts!
