Portland Marathon Blogger Meet Up

I am so MIA these days. I did not go AWOL on ya'll. Just busy at work. Real busy.

Thank God I'm tapering and not having to run much. I have cut out all YOGA. Although I'm sad as hell about this, the rib problem I mentioned a few blogs back has not gone away. I did Yoga last Fri and paid for it all weekend.

So, one or two more little runs and then it is marathon time.
I guess I need to think about packing and all that. Argh!

ALLS I know for sure (I hate when people say "alls') is that Thursday night is ...
MARTINI MEET UP
7:30 pm
The Vault
Be there or be square. Girls.... you in?
Please no psychos or crazies.

We're going to the Expo on Friday afternoon.

Thank you so much for all your support. Not sure when I'll be able to blog again, as my life is spiraling out of control and my internet is down at home.

Peace out skillets.

If the travel gods are good we'll be there (hubby is running, too...he's just a little crazy...as in this is something like his 30th marathon crazy).

If they aren't good...well, we'll be at the expo on Friday, too.

Good luck!!

You have worked so hard this summer preparing for the marathon, you are going to do great, I have no doubts. I can't wait to hear all about it. Have lots of fun!!!

ThickChick said...

See you and the other chickadees there.... plus about 800 of our closest friends (the 1st Thursday of the month there is a big "art walk" -i.e. meat market - in that neck of the woods)... makes for excellent people watching and flirting. ;)

Sounds fun! I don't get in til Saturday. Meeting Absolut(ly)fit Laura (http://absolutlyfit.blogspot.com/) at the expo that afternoon most likely if anyone else will be there. I of course am not running, but cheering on a friend. Good luck on the marathon and the rib thing sounds craptastic. Positive vibes. You're gonna rock Portland (and love it, by the way).

TinaGirl said...

I'm hoping you had a great run! I'm so jealous that I'm not in Portland to meet at the Vault with you girls. It seems like a lot of "what happens in Portland, stays in Portland" kinda fun. I was thinking of you this weekend.

RooBabs said...

Well, I guess it's too late to send well wishes, but I hope the race was fantastic. After all your preparation, I'm sure you did great, and met your goal.

Can't wait for the race report!!

Laurel said...

Ugh, I'm dying to know how you did!!!

Non-Runner Nancy said...

Have a fantastic time!!! I'll be thinking about you (and mostly living vicariously through you, too!)

the gazelle said...

Congratulations on a freaking fantastic time! It was great to see you midrace - you looked terrific & strong. I am looking forward to your race report, but just wanted to say congrats on your awesome finish.

Danica said...

I wish I was around to meet up with all you girls. Sounds fun. Hope the marathon went well. and Please no psychos or crazies.. Love it! :)

Eed said...

POM, I'm so glad to have read your blog today for the 1st time. I linked through Jen's blog (Running Stories) and like what I see... I was at the race yesterday tracking my b/f, but will also run it next year. Like yours, it will be my 2nd marathon! And I love wine and bikram too! Hope everything went well yesterday and can't wait to read the race report. -Emily
