Last week I got lost in all my feelings about finishing the Portland Marathon that I completely forgot to tell you the most interesting story to come out of the weekend!
On Saturday evening Adam and I went down to the concierge at our hotel in Portland to ask where we could get the best burrito bowl (extra rice, no beans for me!). What I got was SO much more than I was expecting. You’re not going to believe this (the story has nothing to do with the food)!
The concierge directed us to a little hole in the wall place called Santeria that had seriously delicious burritos.
After drinking lots of water to hydrate for the next day, I had to use the restroom. The waitress directed me to a little door in the back. She didn’t even smirk or smile… she just let me walk right on through the door into a STRIP CLUB!
The restaurant shares a bathroom with a legit strip club!
When I walked through the door I saw exactly what you think I saw O_O!
Oh Portland, there are just so many reasons I won’t ever forget you. My first marathon and my first time in a strip club being on top of the list!
When I got back to the table and told Adam he said he suddenly needed to use the restroom. Ha-ha. He respectfully waited until we got back to the hotel : ).
This Saturday I went for my first post-marathon run! Just a short 2-miler to get the pins moving again after almost six days off from running.
It was nice to be back on the home course!
I’m really looking forward to running the Fort Lauderdale half marathon again next month. It’s always nice when you get to run on a course you’re super familiar with.
Sunday morning Cecil and I got up early so we could watch a live stream of the Chicago Marathon!
I love that Rita Jeptoo called herself the Queen of Chicago! She looks so powerful when running, I totally bow down to the queen!
Congrats to everyone who marathon’d this weekend! I can’t wait to start reading your re-caps!
How was your weekend run/race?
