Portland 1/2 marathon

Monday, October 11, 2010

Well, we did it. We made it though 13.1 miles for the inaugural Portland 1/2 marathon. We did the full marathon in 2008 and I thought I couldn't get any wetter but I was wrong. It poured on us at times but we still had a good time and there was a great atmosphere with bands and many spectators cheering us on. I'm glad we did it but I'm still kind of sore today but I know it will be better in the next couple of days. I also saw some very inspirational people doing the race including one woman who was completing her 43rd marathon. I hope I'm that active when I'm her age.

    Wish the weather could have cooperated. (Don't know why they changed the Marathon from the first Sunday of October?? Last week was quite nice!) - "Hats off" for hanging in there during the rain.

    Congrats on finishing your 1/2 marathon! It is definitely worth doing!

    Keep up the good work!
