• the fun of it all – 3 cool events coming up!

Here’s some fun stuff coming up that you don’t want to miss, especially if you’re running the Eugene Women’s Half Marathon on September 5th – and boy, I mean, girl, is THAT gonna be fun. Did you check the swag-post-race-activity list? Oh la la, but I digress.


Get yer Jitter-Giggles out before the Eugene Women’s Half Fun Run!

You don’t have to be racing, but if you are, don’t miss this easy, fun FREE  run!

WHEN: Friday, Sept 3rd, 7:00a.m.
WHERE: Parking lot just north of the Amazon Trail by the Bill McChesney/South HS track.
WHAT: This is a short, easy 3-miler designed to get you jazzed about the upcoming race, release nervous energy, have fun and have coffee after!

Come to a reading by co-author of Run Like a Mother

WHEN: Saturday, Sept 4th, 4:00-6:00pm (reading at 4:00) at packet pick-up for Eugene Women’s Half Marathon
WHERE: Ground floor, 5th Street Public Market
NOT RACING? Come and chat, get a book or a cute Run Like a Mother tee!
Marathoner, magazine writer, and Portlander Sarah Bowen Shea is the co-author of Run Like a Mother: How to Get Moving and Not Lose Your Family, Job, or Sanity. The essays in Run Like a Mother mimic the lively conversations good friends have when they’re out on a run: a mix of personal stories; hard-won, helpful advice; and crack-you-up anecdotes that cement a connection that goes well beyond the miles logged that day. Come hear Sarah read from the book, ask her questions, and buy an autographed copy of the book and a limited-edition Run Like a Mother tee. Can’t make reading? Join the chat at www.runlikeamotherbook.com or on Facebook at Run Like a Mother: The Book. I will be joining Sarah at the table, so come say hi!!
