I might be able to run one block if I was being chased by a bear. But 26 miles 385 yards — that’s a whole ‘nother story.
Thanks to Linsey’s good reporting on Facebook, I was able to cheer for Erin’s participation in the Portland Marathon along with these littles, who were there in person.
Erin had trained faithfully for a different event that didn’t materialize. Just inside the deadline she was able to register for this marathon. Too bad I didn’t think to check out the website to learn I could have tracked Erin’s progress through more than Facebook. Oh well.
Here she is at mile 26.1. Almost there.
Her pre-race goal was between 4 and 4.5 hours. Nailed it!
I’ll guess she ate a big lunch and then went home and took a long nap.
PS: Thanks, Lins!
