Portland Marathon

The Portland Marathon is one I've always wanted to do. VJ wrote a wonderful account of cheering on the marathoners there:

"... the folks who are persevering in spite of people passing them, in spite of being out there alone, in spite of blisters and muscle pain and exhaustion—damn, those are my people. They should have a huge crowd. They should have people out, en masse, cheering them on. But they don't. They don't."

It only takes one or two
followed by a silver space blanket and a MEDAL
and that makes it for me
