Portland Marathon Pacing Update by Gregg LeBlanc – Pacing Director

Portland Pacing – to be or not to be? That was the question.

Coach’s Corner: Waiting for the Return of “Normal”

By Rick Lovett As I write this, with all 50 states announcing plans to reopen, one of the things that’s most obvious is that almost everyone longs for life to return to normal…possibly with a few improvements, such as greater opportunities to work from home, low gas prices, and no traffic jams on the freeways.
