Marathon morning can be a bit hectic, but don’t fret. Here are Portland Fit’s plans for the day. Parking, PFit meeting, and three pro-tips!
It’s marathon week! There is not a whole lot you can do at this point to run faster this weekend, but there are a few things you can do that can derail your special day if you aren’t careful. So follow this pre-race checklist this week.
Diane Cooper, your friendly Portland Fit massage therapist, is offering a discount for Portland Fit members participating in the Portland Marathon or Half-Marathon. Call her today to schedule your reward, err… massage therapy. Treat yourself!
Are you good at sidewalk chalk art? How about building massive balloon arches? Every year at the Portland Marathon, Portland Fit sets up a cheering station at about Mile 21. It’s a great place to hang out and watch the marathon. We need your help!
As we get closer to our goal, it’s a good time to reflect on how we got here. We’ve put in a lot of miles both on the weekend and during the week. But we usually can’t do it alone. So consider all the folks that have helped you along the way and then be sure to thank them.
DON’T FORGET: We are meeting at PRC Beaverton on Saturday, September 20th and 27th. We are not meeting at Zidell for the rest of the season!
See you at PRC Beaverton!
For our last weekend at Zidell, our Green and Yellow groups celebrated with the Tram Route. They ran 7 (or 8) miles up Terwilliger and finished at OHSU. And then they took the tram down the hill!
The folks at Disney highlighted our favorite 82 year old marathoner — Flor! Watch the video about Flor and her family running and racing together. We are proud of Flor and the rest of her Portland Fit multigenerational family. Run, Flor, Run!
Portland Fit will be meeting at PRC in Beaverton on 9/20 and 9/27. We will not be meeting at Zidell on those two weekends.
