‘Till the Portland Marathon. I was so nervous I wanted to puke every time I thought about the marathon. That is until I came up with Plan B. (*Please note-I love having a Plan B. It lets me relax knowing that everything will be okay one way or another).
If for some reason I am unable to complete the Portland Marathon (aka DNF), the Seattle Marathon is November 28th. Yes, it will be much colder and rainier. But I’m an overweight Oregonian who runs better in the colder weather. Yes,iit is also right around Thanksgiving. But what better excuse to over eat than 26.2 miles!!
I have a pacer. How awesome is that? My pacer is using the Portland Marathon as a training run for a ultra marathon she’s running a few weeks later. I have all the gear. Now to be patient and wait for the marathon.
