Fueled by Fine Wine

A unique title for a unique race. This little half-marathon had a few firsts for me.

First time I’ve ever had a wine tasting at packet pick-up. Mmmm :)

First time I’ve had an RFID chip on my bib number instead of a chip on my shoe. (I hope all races start doing timing this way- it’s so much easier!)

First time I’ve ever ran, what felt like, half a race uphill.

First time I’ve ever worn a “Team something” shirt. Thank you Lange Winery for the free tech shirt. :)

First time I’ve ever gotten a glass at the finish line of a race. (It’s a really pretty glass too)

Here is a short slide show of my race day.

A Portland blogger ran (4th place) the race and posted a great review of the Marathon here;

A shout out to Frank for letting my use his song. Thank you!
