That was the other distraction from Blogville – the Portland Marathon on October 1. Tough course with a bridge at Mile 16 but otherwise good. Third one in the mighty blue Crocs…the sponsorship deal is back in place. Felt weird running in the hometown of Nike and HQ of Adidas wearing gardening shoes but hey, whatever works! Thank you to support crew – Shellie and Anthony. Next stop – Tucson AZ, December 10 to round out the running year.
