Congratulations to all of you who ran the Sauvie Island marathon last weekend (and then gloated about it on Twitter all day)—that's a big accomplishment and you must be very proud.
Everybody else: I found a run we should do! It's a 5k through Sherwood—hear me out—called Catnip Friday (!), and proceeds go to support the state's largest no-kill cat shelter, Cat Adoption Team.
Details: August 12, 7 pm, $20 advance, $25 day of, plus an optional $5 for a Catnip Run t-shirt (um, yes). Here's the route; it starts at Sherwood High, then runs "along the scenic Woodhaven bike path, through scenic Stella Olsen park." (I can confirm that both of those are, in fact, scenic.) It sounds like fun, and it's for a very good cause.
