Join #TeamData for the Portland Half Marathon

If you’ve been following me on Twitter (@datachick), you know I’ve been checking some races off my bucket list.  I apologize for all those tweets, by the way…but I also loved the fact that people could Tweet to me while I ran.  It’s so helpful to have people virtually cheering me on.

TeamDataBinaryI’ve made a commitment to run a race a month for 2015, so I’m going to be setting up “teams’ for the races that allow this.  The first one I’ve set up is for the Portland, Oregon half marathon.  This is a longer distance, I know, but I’ve run both the half and the full marathon and I can tell you they are excellent events.  There’s an 8-hour cut off for both races.  That means you have 8 hours to finish.  Since a half marathon is 13.1 miles, 8 hours means you can run, walk, stroll or whatever you want to do. In fact, 8 hours would give you time to stroll, have lunch and a nap during those 13+ miles/21+ kilometres.

This race is known for its great crowd support, on-course music, excellent swag and great food after the race. Plus, it’s Portland. Food Trucks. Coffee. Donuts. The perfect race fuel.

Register to join us on 4 October 2015.  Registration for this race usually closes around the end of January, so you only have a couple of days to commit.

And if you can’t join us, remember you can still cheer us on.
