There was a pleasant surprise in my email inbox this morning! The Portland Marathon July Newsletter was sent out featuring the latest news about the upcoming October marathon and highlights a few of the many fantastic reasons to add it to your racing calendar.
It was a complete honor when I was approached with a request to submit a short article related to my own marathon training. (Me? Write something about running? Gee… I don’t know… HA!) As I approach most things in life, I aim to be authentic and transparent. My regular readers know that I’ve had some ups and downs this year. Now, a very large running community will know about it too. And I’m completely okay with that. I believe that when we share our stories, our struggles, and our successes, we help build each other and build a stronger tribe.
You can read the entire article in the Portland Marathon July Newsletter but here is a little preview:
