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!
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!
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.
Want to do something nice for yourself and one of our partners? Schedule a massage with our massage expert and certified Friend of Portland Fit, Diane Cooper. She’s offering a special for Portland Fit members with a little before-and-after.
We have three more events on our calendar: our last Saturday meeting, the marathon, and our party. Saturday is back at PRC due to another conflict at Zidell. Don’t miss our last day!
There are conflicts at Zidell on the last two Saturdays of our training season, so we’re meeting at PRC Beaverton this Saturday and on 9/26. Come out and join us for an easy 9 or 10 mile. Yeah, taper!
Congratulations to everyone that completed the final benchmark of the training season — our 21 miler! You have now entered the best part of your training season… the taper! The taper is your chance to relax, scale down your mileage and enjoy the fruits of your labor.
Save the date! On Monday, October 5th we’ll have our annual Portland Fit celebration party at Old Spaghetti Factory in the South Waterfront at 5pm-8pm. Come celebrate another great year of running and walking together!
