Hi! All! This looks like FUN! I plan on joining you on Dec. 1 for the Santa 5K. Sometimes I am at Disneyland that weekend for work, BUT I want to go to a Spark People Convention & this mini looks like fun! I live in 3 places. N. AZ, Hollywood & Vegas. I travel allot for my small business. Check out my Spark Page, I put 2 photos from the 2010 Santa run, I did. I was MUCH heaver, then. Spark People lights up my life! I don't go to the teams everyday, but hope to play with all of you, many times before the "BIG" event!

How long is a half RnR? Not sure I can do that. I'm still trying to get in a mile under 30 minutes! I HAVE walked a 10K, though. I'm just slow & steady.

Looking forward to meeting you all at the Mini convention! Are there going to be any gatherings before or after the event? I can''t wait to meet actual physical people! So far Spark People is all virtual for me!

Happy Sparking!

OMG - I almost fell off my stool when I found this Spark Team page. Is this fate or what. Let me fill u all in. Before I started with SP, I wanted to get back into running, so I happened to be in my local Running Room store where I met my instructor. She mentioned she will be coaching a 1/2 marathon clinic and the goal race was in Las Vegas (Dec 4). Now this happened in Jan/11, I soon stumbled upon SP in early Feb and I began my journey to get healthy and fit.
I am now 30lbs lighter and much healthlier - running 16km this Sunday. I've been debating if I should go to Las Vegas but since SP will be having a mini convention, well my mind is made up. I'm coming to Vegas.

Hi Allison!
I'm not sure if a convention is set up for this coming year yet or not. The race was a lot of fun this past December, but I sadly didn't make the lunch date/convention as my flight didn't get in in time. Hopefully we'll have another meet up this coming December!!

Hello, my name is Allison. I used to belong to OA and they had a huge convention in Philly and it was wonderful.

I would love to know more about the SP convention. I have never been to Vegas and this would be an excellent excuse to go there.

I am a grandmother of 2 boys and I will be turning 60 in Feb. I can't think of any other way to give myself a belated birthday present.

Hi all!
My name is Elisabeth and I'll be doing the Vegas half this year for the second time. Kelly, I also did the Seattle half this summer; I'm definitely looking to do better in December (although I dropped 4 minutes off my Vegas time in Seattle).
Looking forward to meeting/chatting with everyone. Glad to know a bunch of sparkers are doing the race!

Hi everyone,

My name is Z & I'll also be doing the RNR half. I did it last year & had such a good time. This year I want to PR & break 2 hours.

I'll be flying from Portland & arriving Dec. 2. My husband & I are planning on staying at The Hotel at Mandalay Bay & need to still make a reservation.

Glad to see this team & look forward to meeting everyone!

Hey everyone! My name is Kelly and I'm going to be doing the Vegas Rock N Roll 1/2 with my sister. We did the Seattle Rock N Roll cause it was local, and we liked it so much we want to do another! So Vegas it is - because really, who can resist Brett Michaels? :)

We're hoping to book our flights, hotel, and registration next month... I'm already very excited, and think a SP meet up is a great addition to the marathon weekend!

Hope it is not too late for me to join from Atlanta. Very much interested in the race. I should have reached my weight goal and been fit for it. Who do I talk to for details?

Hi everyone,

I'm pretty excited about this. I've never been to Vegas and this seems like a more than fitting reason to go.

I would be flying out of Michigan. What time does the convention start so I know how to book my flight? I am also considering a half-marathon. I've only done a couple 5Ks. But I figure if the Biggest Loser people can do it, so can I

Hi Everyone ! I also live here in LV and if I can help in anyway, please dont hesitate to ask.
I was fortunate to have gone to the first Spark convention in San Diego (pictures on my page)and am super excited you are planning this.
I hope this is open to all Spark members and not a private event ??
