Coach Jim’s free group long run: Saturday, January 28, 2017

Pizza Roma at 8a on Saturday

This week, Coach Jim’s run will be starting and finishing at Pizza Roma, located at 4715 SE Woodstock Blvd. As usual, the run will start at 8a. There are two parts to this run, so if 8a is too early for you, you can meet them for the 2nd loop. If that sounds good to you, plan to arrive at Pizza Roma no later than 9:10 to be on the safe side.

The first route this week is an 8.6-mile out and back which includes a climb up Mt. Tabor for some good views. The second loop is another 8.5-miler that runs through Reed College, Eastmoreland, and Sellwood before heading back to the store.

If you’re running a spring marathon, these runs are set up for you to hit your mileage goals. Coach Jim and his pacers are all volunteers, so be sure to thank them! They are also very nice people with a lot of racing experience, so you can pepper them with questions about what to eat, how to warm up, and when to start your taper. If you’re running a spring half marathon, you can just do part of the mileage that matches up with your plan!

You can RSVP here on facebook; and join his group to see all of his group’s updates and race discounts.


About Kelly Barten (884 Articles)
I started the Run Oregon blog in February 2007, because I felt like running in Oregon and SW Washington deserved more positive coverage. I also wanted to level the playing field so that small, non-profit races could compete with big events; and to support LOCAL race organizers. I'm a Creighton Bluejay (undergrad) and an Oregon Duck (Sports Marketing MBA), and I live in Tigard with my husband and two kids. My "real job" is working for an incredibly awesome math textbook company doing marketing and production.
