Yesterday I participated in the 2017 Portland Marathon. This was my third marathon ever, second for the year and I feel great with the result. I felt strong throughout the day, couple of times I thought my legs might cramp up a little but nothing some GLUKOS can't resolve.
My training definitely paid off and I have managed to do a great job with my nutrition. The GLUKOS gels are the best for me easy to swallow, give me zero digestive problems and I feel like I am able to absorb the nutrients right away.
The weather was perfect and running over the St. Johns Bridge twice was a ton of fun. I also always love the energy and enthusiasm on Willamette ave.
After this result I feel better about signing up for the Mt. Hood 50k in July of next year seems like a very attainable goal.
Here are a few pictures from yesterday.
