Well, we did it! We officially ran our marathon in Portland on October 5, 2008. It was a thrilling ride preparing for and crossing the finish line. We were well prepared for the most part thanks to an online program we followed from Hal Higdon. If you are new to long distance running or trying to run your first marathon, I highly recommend browsing his website to get schedules, tips, tricks and more for your marathon.
Thanks to everyone for your support. What’s next? Maybe a triathlon?
