If you haven’t picked up your 2015 Portland Fit shirt, you can pick it up on Saturdays at Portland Fit. The shirts will not be available at PRC during the week.
We made it to the half-way point in our season! A lot of us celebrated that by running or walking in the Helvetia Half Marathon. But now we are faced with a question: Now what?
Congratulations to all our members that participated in the Helvetia Half Marathon last weekend. It was a glorious day to celebrate all our hard work over the last few months. A half marathon is quite an accomplishment!
Just a heads up that we have a schedule change on 6/20/15. We are doing 10 miles that day, so check the start times again if you have a tendency to look ahead more than a week.
Can you run a 10:00 or a 10:30 min/mile pace like clockwork? Do you want a free entry into the Helvetia Half Marathon? You get to wear a balloon!
Our first benchmark is coming up on Saturday, June 13th. We won’t be meeting at Zidell. Please join us and participate in the Helvetia Half! Here are some more important details about Helvetia…
We will not be meeting at Zidell on Saturday, June 13th. We encourage everyone to participate in the Helvetia Half Marathon that morning! And please join us for the Portland Fit annual team picture at 7:15am.
Our shirts are ready to be picked up! They will be available tomorrow (Saturday, June 6th) at Portland Fit. They will also be available at PRC during packet pick-up for Helvetia. You do not need to be participating in Helvetia to pick up a shirt. We also hope to have them onsite at Helvetia.
We are still looking for volunteers for the Helvetia Half-Marathon. Come out and join us and be part of our award-winning aid station. In past years we’ve won the coveted Best Aid Station award! Contact celia AT portlandfit DOT com to find out more!
As we progress in our training, one of the lessons we learn is that some things happen at ten miles that don’t happen at three miles. Exhibit A: Nipple Chafing.
