Portland Marathon

Congrats to everyone who ran today in the Portland Marathon! In your honor I ramped up my run today: almost 9 miles! (Yeah, I know, big deal, but think back to when you started training and you thought 9 miles was kick ass!)

I'm training for the Run Like Hell 1/2 marathon, on October 25. Still haven't registered though. Can't decide between Run Like Hell or the Columbia Gorge 1/2 the same day. Hhhmmmm...

...in the mean time I'll keep on training. I'm adding hills to my runs. Either event, I'm gonna hit some serious inclines. Me no likey the hills.

I tackled Mt Tabor last week and actually did well. And by "well" I mean I ran up them. Not fast but didn't stop so that's good for a flatlander like myself. I give all the credit to my polenta and bean dinner the night before. Yummm...

Though I'm not a runner I've always enjoyed that sense of "getting there," therefore, I think I understand that sense of accomplishment that comes from reaching the next goal that runners strive for.

A personal goal, coupled with the celebration of the accomplishments of others working towards a similar goal, creates a sense of community.

Reflect and remember, all through life, we never run alone.

Go, Kristin!
