Peace out with your fellow Hippies
This year, Air High Fives are all the rage.
WHERE WE LIKE TO EAT
Where do we like to eat? The Old Spaghetti Factory! If you want to maximize your training efforts, and have the best race day possible, you have to start with an awesome nutritional plan. The Old Spaghetti factory is our top choice for our pre-race meals (and it’s a great choice every other day of the year as well). Paula’s favorite is their traditional spaghetti with marinara. Dave is a huge fan of the lasagna. Let OSF fuel your next race effort!
HIPPIE HALF TRAINING CLUB!
Whether your goal is to get fit, stay fit, get faster, get stronger, cross the finish line, make new friends, or just learn a few new things, joining a group helps with accountability and accountability is what gets you to the finish line. It takes courage to join a group and to start something new. We are excited to meet you and help you succeed. We are a positive, encouraging and supportive group, so get ready to meet some amazing new friends!
This group is for all abilities and everyone is welcome! Together we will train (mostly) at Portland Running Company in Beaverton but we will have other options and adventures along the way. Our ten week program includes coaching, store discounts, seminars, and a training program that leads you to the Hippie Chick Half/Quarter Marathon on May 7, 2022.
This program does not include registration into the Hippie Chick Half Marathon so please register separately for the Hippie Chick Half/Quarter Marathon. Each group will have a Mentor to assist. Our group meets on Saturday at 9:00am sharp! Please come ready to run or walk. We will host a short seminar before each training walk or run and we will have coffee and snacks afterwards.
Something For Everyone!
The Hippie Half is focused on you, our fellow hippie runners and walkers. Some racers will take this seriously and try to win the whole thing, but most of us will do The Hippie Half for the fun, fitness, and festivities. Along with walking and running, there will be dancing, there will be eating, and yes, there will be a costume contest. For many of you true hippies, just come and peace out in your usual gear-we’ll find you.
For so many people, focusing on exercise and fitness has taken a back seat to the bigger health picture BUT we think exercise and fitness is THE BIG PICTURE. So, for those of you who have dusted off your high school PE uniforms, and broken out your old sneakers to give running or walking a second chance, Welcome Back! Peace. Love. Race.
Reveal your inner hippie with some help from your outer tie-dye!
