I have run Pints to Pasta 10k for the last 7 years. It is my favorite 10K. Honestly I don’t really “race” 10Ks. It always seems to be apart of a long run, after a race or big bike ride. I think that I was running faster at this time last year than I am this year. I was very close to a PR but I had done a sprint tri the day before. I am planning on taking a rest day the Saturday before the race this year. I will see what I can do!! :)
Run with Paula used to put this race and many others in Portland on. Better Series bought the races at the beginning of this year. I have heard good things about the ways the races from been run since the buy out. Better Series is also the company who runs Hood To Coast. Obviously they know what they are doing!! :)
It is a fun course. We start at the Adidas headquarters. Head downhill past Widmer Brothers. Through downtown onto the waterfront. Finish at the Old Spaghetti Factory.
After the race we get a full spaghetti
dinner breakfast and Widmer beer. Who doesn’t want spaghetti and beer at 9 in the morning?!!
