My first race!

I ran my first 5K in the Shamrock Run on Sunday. It's been quite the push getting myself back into running since I had Asher. But I did it! Nathan ran the run with me (last minute) and showed our friends who said he couldn't do it--that he could--without training! He even beat me by about 15 seconds! We had a good time pushing through together and found out that we finished pretty well. Nate finished 150/331 in his age range and I finished 70/704 in my age range. Yay! Now, Nate wants to take up running and is planning on joining me for the Drop Top 10k in June, in Hillsboro, OR. So between now and then I'll be working on my speed and pushing for six miles. Oh, it feels good!

Wow Cassie! I didn't know you were a runner. And you were even in the top 10 percent. Good for you and Nate! Thanks for inviting me to read your blog. I enjoy staying in touch.
(Happy birthday to your mom today!!)

Love,
Aunt Janet

Yay! Good for you...it does feel so good after a race...all that energy from all the people, I love it! I`m glad you had a good experience. You`re going to rock 6.2 miles. Can`t wait to hear about it!

“You must write every single day of your life... You must lurk in libraries and climb the stacks like ladders to sniff books like perfumes and wear books like hats upon your crazy heads... may you be in love every day for the next 20,000 days. And out of that love, remake a world.” ― Ray Bradbury
