Hello from the City of Roses (or rather…Bridge City…there are SO MANY!!!) Portland Rock’n’Roll Half Marathon weekend has begun! We flew into Portland yesterday afternoon and are staying in a hotel downtown in the Pearl District. We stopped by the Expo last night to pick up our packets – and saw a huge countdown clock to Race Start – 40 hours! EEK…getting so close. This morning we got up and walked to the start at Tom McCall Waterfront Park, and then will be spending the afternoon exploring the city and shopping! The weather for tomorrow morning looks absolutely perfect, so let’s cross our fingers that nothing changes. Check back for a race recap on Monday or Tuesday. Until then, follow along with my trip on Instagram!
