Portland 1/2? 

Considering it. 

We had planned on taking a baby moon this time, but it isn't working out miles wise.  So then we thought a post baby trip.  Then I thought about my post baby body.  And that I have to have something I'm training for to be in any sort of shape.  Then I saw the phrase "fast course" and "direct flights from Austin" and my mind was churning. 

Surely the weather will not be 90 million degrees.  Babykins will be almost 8 months.  It comes with TWO finishers shirts and some sort of coin?  Um thanks?

Will I be able or ready to leave him?  My boobs will still be leaky.  And the race will suck because lets be honest... I'll still be tired.  And summer is HOT for training.  Like.. hot hot.

I need advice.  The race closes this month so I'll have to committ asap.  I'm struggling.  Realistic mama's out there... what is your advice?  Do we just plan a normal old trip without any running involved?  Or do I lock it up?

You have a strong PNW following and PDX is amazeballs if you like to eat. I say do it. Although, I should warn you the PDX 1/2 is pretty hilly. Not as hilly as Seattle, but still pretty hilly. xoxo

Loosy, I run to eat.

I'd consider running it with you-it's only 2.5 hours away!

Lock it down. No excuses. The endorphins alone will beat those post baby body blues. And you will be soooo insanely proud of yourself. Do it for you! Hides...I would run this too:). Shall we? Do it. Do it. Do it.
