Portland Quilt Market, walking a half marathon

This week will be Spring Quilt Market here in Portland and I am fortunate to attend this year.  I am so looking forward to this experience and meeting the designers that I so enjoy.

Maybe if I can get my camera and computer to see eye to eye, I can upload some pictures.

For the past year and a half I have been walking pretty regular and decided last Memorial weekend that I wanted to walk a half marathon the following Memorial Weekend.  I have been a training fool..yesterday we walked just about 13 miles and I was hurting pretty bad...the feet...but I know I can finish the half that will be in two weeks..just not sure I can finish in my 16 minute pace time without doing some running.  I am so looking forward to it and if anyone takes pics, I will post those.  I will be joined by a good friend and then a friend of hers will be going as well.

Hope all had a good Mothers Day.  Mine was pretty was my birthday as well.  Off to try to get some gumption to trace out some patterns.

Happy Quilt week.

      It went GREAT!!!! I loved it. Cannot wait for next year. I actually did better on my time average pace was a 15.25 minute mile. I have done another 1/2 on the 4th of July..not a good time as started to get blisters at mile three and by the time I was done, I was just happy to be done...they were pretty bad and not sure why I got them. Have also done a 10k trail run and then in three weeks have a 9k and 1/2 back to back - same weekend...
