Portland and the PDX Marathon Expo

On Saturday Amy, Adrienne and I left for Portland. It’s about a 3 hour drive. We arrived about 2:30 and went straight to the Expo. The Expo was pretty good and very organized. We had no problem getting our bibs and shirts. I need to stop ordered mediums. The shirt is way to big. We walked around a little. Amy and Adrienne bought a few things. I’m saving my money for NYC. I also ran into Jamie at the Expo.

After the Expo we checked into our hotel and headed to Voo Doo Donuts before dinner. This time we went to the second location and only had about a 10 minute wait. This location is on the other side of the river and not know to many tourists. But it has seating inside and was really cute.

For dinner we went to Nostrana, a northern Italian restaurant. I had the La dolce vita pizza, which had gorgonzola cheese, carmelized onions and a walnut pesto. It was delicious.

After dinner we headed to Moonstruck Chocolates, which is a favorite of Adrienne’s. I got 2 dark chocolate sea salt caramel pecan clusters which were really good.

We went back to the hotel to plan the morning and get to bed early.

Next post the Marathon.
