Welcome to the team - so glad you joined us. I've not run the Des Moines half or marathon, but beings its in Iowa- it has to be great! (Not from Iowa, but have done Ragbrai five times, and love the state.) Best wishes to you!!

Des Moines is not on my race schedule this year but I wanted to be sure to welcome you to the team!

Welcome, KCLIME! I have not run that one, but I have friends who have and say it's a great race. If you aren't on the local Iowa SparkTeam, you may want to post there as well to see if anyone is doing this event.

I wish you all the best with your training!

I just started getting back into running this year, I used to love it when I was in high school. I finished the RunDouble C25k program and started the 5 to 10k program. I just finished week 1 of 6 for that program. I'm in this team because running a half is one of my bucket list items that I hope to cross off this year. If all goes well, I'll be doing it at the Des Moines half in October. Will any other Sparkers be there?
