Yesterday, I walked the 6.2 miles of the Mayor's Race in Portland.
It's part of the Portland marathon, and quite a big deal.
It was really cool at the end to see the Marathon runners passing by on their way to the finish line. Most of those guys didn't LOOK like they'd just run 26 miles.
Had a great time, made some converts, and didn't even get rained on.
Next year, I need to look into doing the "nordic walking" event. I think I missed out on all the fun free stuff at the end because I did the non-competitive mayor's race.
Love that free stuff.
