Congratulations to Charley Huber and Julie Smith on finishing the 2012 Portland Marathon on October 7th.  “I don’t need to be reminded about how lucky I am to live in Portland, but the marathon was a nice reminder.  I was truly touched by all of the cheering spectators, good music, and amazing volunteer support,” said Julie.  It was Julie’s first marathon.  It was Charley’s 11th marathon.  Charley remembers getting across the St. Johns Bridge looking toward downtown Portland, and thinking  “I don’t really have to walk all the way back, do I?”

Congratulations Charley and Julie!
