FitBloggin’ 13 – Day 4 (of 4)

The final day of FitBloggin’ 13!

Got to Portland around 6:45 and the streets were quiet and empty.

But not for long because it was time for the FUN RUN!!

Lindsay and I walked the 5k route that followed The Eastbank Esplanade-Tom McCall Waterfront park loop which takes you along the water and over two bridges.  It’s a great route and it was a gorgeous day!

I wore my pretty new Reebok Nanos for our walk and it was around this point that I noticed the backs of my ankles were getting irritated.  The back of the shoe comes up farther than I’m used to and I just wore my usual low rider ankle socks which was probably a mistake.

It was around this point that I definitely started to feel pain on the backs of my ankles, especially the left one so I pulled over to check it out.  Yep, half way through a 5k walk I had developed a blister on each one and the left had popped.  Gross, I know.  Don’t worry, I’m not posting a picture!  I love the shoes so next time I’ll try them with higher socks, and maybe a double layer.

After the fun run there was breakfast and mingling and that was it!

I was home by 10am and walked Koko.  I had a ton of fun at FitBloggin’ but I definitely missed spending time with this furry face!

Oh yeah, I missed Mr. Won’t Run’s face too!!

Koko was pretty interested in my new cheese, but I was not sharing.  Okay fine, I shared.

Final day of FitBloggin’ fashion was a Middle School flashback.  Saw this tank at Target and had to have it!  But who cares? No Big Deal. (“NBD” as the shirt actually says at the bottom.)

No selfie judging allowed, it was 6am.

So there you have it, all four days of FitBloggin’ 13 fun.  Like anything, there were pros and cons, some things that were perfect and some things that could be improved upon.  Overall it was a lot of fun and I learned a lot.  I’m glad I went and I will definitely try to go next year if I can, they told us they’re considering Austin and Nashville, both of which would be so fun to explore but I think I’d need to take a few extra days for that!  Can’t wait to see what happens!
