Run Like Hell Freezes Over

Run Like Hell

While riding through downtown Portland this morning, we encountered an enthusiastic gathering of runners getting ready to start “Run Like Hell.” We stopped to take a few photos and watch the start of the race.

Twenty minutes later, the scantily clad participants were still shivering on the line and unable to begin due to a broken down train blocking Naito Way.

We hung out for a while, meeting Mr. Beefy, who was there to cheer on the runners.

Finally, we decided to head over and see what was happening on Naito Way. Apparently the train suffered a broken air hose and it was taking a while to get it fixed. As a result, participants in the half marathon had to come to a screeching halt with several miles left in their race. A number of the folks we talked to had been waiting more than 30 minutes in an effort to finish the run. Brrrrrr.
