Your Hood to Coast 2018 Nike finish line massage therapists:
L-R: Yuriko Onuma, LMT, Joanna Volkoff, LMT, Pam Hunter, LMT, Tracy Lloyd, LMT, Stephanie Russell, LMT
THANK YOU NIKE! Once again, we had the greatest clients grace our tables! The day began at 7:00 am and our sign up sheets filled with the names of runners, eager to get even 10 minutes of massage for tired bodies.
Yuriko Onuma and I (Tracy) started the day to greet and treat the young Japanese team from Toyo University, hoping to set a HTC time record. While a course glitch prevented that record breaking, they still came in first place, and after that, hit our tables. My year of Japanese at Portland State came in handy but Yuriko handily found out that several of the team members are working hard to qualify for the 2024 Olympic Games! We wish them the best.
At 11:00, we added three more therapists, to complete our team of 5; and I calculated between us all we have over 60 years of combined massage experience! I think we make up our own "Dream Team".
Our day ended at 7:00 pm sharp, and we thank everyone
who understood we had to pack it up and go home at some point.
Thank you Fuller Events, who puts on the finish line party, for assisting our weary therapists in getting our heavy gear back to our vehicles. Fuller puts on many great events around Portland and surrounding cities, but not least of them is "The Mother of All Relays."
Did we work on you at Hood to Coast this year? Let us know how we did!
