Half Marathon Trainers

Hood to Coast (Read 337 times)

    I know it isn't a half marathon, but I just wanted to let everyone know how excited and nervous I am to run this race.  I am up here in Portland to run with a team formed out of my company's Portland office.  Never been to Portland before.....what a beautiful city!  Not sure how three legs, 17+ miles total, in about 20 hours is going to come off.  We'll see. Wish me luck.......

    Stop being a fat slob.

    Run more miles than last year.

      Go Sean Go!  Good luck with your event. It sounds like loads of fun!

      Use your momentum...keep going.  You know you can make it.

        Sounds fun. I'm envious.  Enjoy!

        Choosing my words carefully has never been my strength I've been known to be vague and often pointless

           You'll do fine.  


          Couple of unsolicited pointers


          The last leg will feel like the closing miles of those HM's you have run.  Remember to eat well between your runs.

            Have a blast! Smile

            Three half marathons later, I got a number. Half Fanatic #9292. :)

               I suppose it is a corporate funded relay team?  Even better!  Enjoy.

                Great beach party to look forward to at the finish - have fun!

                  What an AWESOME and EPIC event!!!!  If you have the opportunity.........actually, you should MAKE the opportunity.......to participate in the Hood to Coast event!!!!  What a blast!

                   

                  Ran well, too.......ran all three legs not far off my 10K pace..........I was SMOKIN'!!!!!

                      Wow, I knew this was the grand daddy of all the relays but the number of participants and the  Beach finish / outdoor restaurant seems even nicer.  On my bucket list now.

                        Great stuff!

                          Wow! Gorgeous scenery and an exhilarating experience.  So happy for you that you did so extremely well, SeanBig grin

                            Thanks everyone!  Yep, this race and overall experience just shattered my expectations.  Really a great event and had an awesome time.  Now on to my next HM coming up in mid October......need to step it up for the next six weeks.

                             

                            Cheers everyone!
