Today is a big day for Portland Marathon runners. It is not raining, what a great day to run.
Rob is running half marathon this year.
He got up 5:30 am in the morning, while it was pitch black outside. Got ready for the big event.

early in the morning

He wore his old running shoes, short and athlete, eat light breakfast then off. I went to take photos of him when he was running. Like I have been doing last 8 years. At 7.20 am I was waiting for him in 2 miles milestone area. He is a dedicated runner. I admire him for his strength.
