Night Before Portland Marathon - Geek Turned Athlete

Night Before Portland Marathon

Well, it is finally the night before the Portland Marathon for me. I’m trying not be nervous for this “training run,” but I can’t help it!! Dinner with my husband and triathlon club definitely helped ease some anxiety.


I could not believe how much crap I had out for this run. Whatever happened to the days where people would just run with their sneakers and a pair of shorts?? Geez!!


  • Swifts hat
  • running shoes
  • socks
  • timing chip
  • nutrition
  • arm sleeves
  • shorts or 3/4 length pants (I’m not sure about the weather)
  • sweatshirt and rain jacket to wear on the way to start — It is supposed to rain tomorrow. ;(
  • body glide (rain= chafing)
  • sunglasses
  • headphones
  • garmin

Goals: I just want to finish under 4 hours. With this last pelvic muscle injury, I don’t want to push it too hard especially considering my Ironman is in a month and a half. I don’t want to be re-injured. That would suck. A lot.

Anyway, good luck to anyone else running tomorrow!! Here we go!!
