Back on Track

With the Portland Marathon still weeks away, it seem seem a bit premature to be planning my change of wardrobe at the 25 mile marker but with pre-washing, line-drying and ironing, a phatgirl doesn't want to get caught short on time. Oh, by the way, having never been in a marathon I'm assuming there's a wardrobe change before the grand finish. Yes?

Today I followed through on my guilt-cleansing course of action and combined yesterday's avoided 3 mile walk with today's scheduled 5 miles for the accumulated total of 8 miles at a 14:09 pace. I was pleased with the pace since it was the best average time I've had on the Lafayette Reservoir loop.

Wardrobe change BEFORE the finish? hmmmmm
Cool shirt though!



Oh..and please be careful between mile 8 and 8.5 , there are a few blind curves . Stay on the RIGHT side of the road until the sidewalk begins( somewhere around mile 9)

And I feel weirder than usual tomorrow , I'll know why.

Your dedication amazes me. I wish you the best of luck with the remainder of your training and I am looking forward to hearing all about the real deal!

Still working on my eating issues by the way! Thanks for that inspiration too.
