Newport Marathon 2017 - Jun 5, 2017

June 3rd marked my fifth year of running Newport Marathon. This was Newport's 19th year! It was also my 11th marathon to date! This was going to be a great race for me! I had a good training plan and was going strong. I had lots of great people to train with. Newport is also my favorite marathon course to race at.

Newport Marathon 2015 Review and Personal Blog - Jun 1, 2015

Newport Marathon 2015 was my 8th marathon, 4th time running Newport! 2015 was Newport's 17th annual Marathon. It was held on Saturday May 30th on Oregon's beautiful central coast. They offered a half marathon and a full marathon, both selling out well before May 30th. I had five friends who were planning on running either the half or full who waited too long and were greatly disappointed. This is one you need to register early to ensure your spot.

Race Report: Newport Marathon 2015 - Jun 1, 2015

Overall, the Newport Marathon was a great race to run and I'm glad I chose it. Organization, course, and metal were all well done. The shirt could have been a little better (the 2014 shirt looked nice). I would gladly do it again, although I'd prefer to make it into a 4-5 day trip rather than a 39 hour whirlwind.

Refreshing. A Newport Marathon 2014 Race Recap - Jun 5, 2014

That said, I knew early on, like, weeks before race day, that long-term, my heart and mind would remember and value my straight-up Newport race less so than it would the rare, uninterrupted, and unadulterated quality time with some close friends; the race was a part of it, no doubt, but it wasn't the end-all, be-all of my time in OR. It's a difference in value and judgement, and this time around, I far, far, faaaaaaaar more valued the Newport experience than I did the Newport race, the process more so than the product.
