Day 19--Joined a Runners Club


I'd been looking into joining a training group for my half-marathon for a few weeks now. On Thursday I made a visit to Fit Right NW, a runners store here in Vancouver, and asked a few questions about their training schedule. Although the sign-ups had already passed, Fit Right allows runners to join the scheduled runs for free. Saturday, I went down to the NW Portland Fit Right store and ran the Leif Erickson Trail with the group. It was exciting, intense, and beautiful, and I finished the targeted range of miles scheduled, much to my amazement.

To live across the water from Portland, one of the best cities in the nation, and to have thousands and thousands of acres of luscious landscape and trails throughout, is an absolute blessing. Leaving this place is not an option.

Cassie, I'm so happy for you. It's so great to run WITH people...you can always seem to go farther and longer and they inspire you to do better. I hope you enjoy your new group!

My husband's from MN and they have a huge half marathon in his hometown every year. We so want to run it together but alas, my knee won't cooperate. Good luck!

“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
