Portland or Bust!

Another great day to donate! Two marathons and two charities! Let's raise a combined $6,500 for cancer research through Fred's Team and low-income seniors with Housing Opportunities and Maintenance for the Elderly (H.O.M.E.)!

Portland marathon this Sunday! Following along at home by downloading the app on your phone - or use this link on your computer! Don't forget, the race starts at 7am (10am EST).

I've packed up my running socks, shorts, and a variety of shirts. I still need to pack in the vaseline and energy gels. But I'm just about ready. The training schedule calls for an easy two miles. So that remains for Friday morning. But now I've started the very last bit, and very important part of marathon prep. I'm watching Portlandia.

I am excited for the marathon, but also excited for a few days in the magical city of pedi-cabs, adult hide-and-seek leagues, and Kath and Dave. I'll be keeping my eyes peeled for good walls and bad art, any free-style canoe contests.
