Hi Everybody! My name is Jenn G from Calgary, Alberta - and I'm friends with Penny (RUNNINGWILD) who came last year. She had such an amazing time, with her and Roo - that I thought I might join this and catch the lowdown, and see if I can make this one of my trips next year! HOWDY!

Hi everyone! I'm Fox, and although I probably introduced myself ot the team awhile back, I dropped off the face of the earth after a flareup of an injury had sidelined me from running for a few months.

But... I'm back! And I'm determined to stay active in this group so I can kick butt at JASR next March (and use it as a nice gauge for the Pittsburgh Half in May). Oh, and also, because BE-THE-CHANGE has told me what an awesome bunch of people you all are, and I can really use an active group of Sparkers to help me stay motivated ;)

Absolutely! There were a lot of walkers! This was my very first JASR and it was an incredible experience! When I got back home (South Dakota), the very first thing I told my mother was, "Put the last weekend of March 2013 on your calendar! I'll need you to house-sit for me!!!"

Looking forward to meeting you in 2013!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :)

Saw the blog and want to get in to this for next year---I have met some of my awesome Spark friends in person---even had a Sparkler from Vancouver, Canada, come and stay with me for 3 weeks---that while she was there we went to PA and met up with 2 other Sparklers--one from PA and one from NJ---I think the best thing is meeting people you have become close to and who understand my fixation with Spark. From the pictures it looked like you all had a fab time together---now, can I walk instead of run? I live on the Eastern Shore of MD in Salibury--about half an hour from Ocean City, MD

It is about pointing yourself in the direction of growth, training yourself to get comfortable with your highest potential, and then taking small steps to support that shift. It’s about showing up for yourself, day by day, and then one day finding that you’ve undergone a transformation.”

Around here everyone knows me as "Wood" or "Woodheat" and my wife goes by "Luvquilting" or simply "Luv". However, in the real world we go by Larry and Gloria and live in the Harrisburg, PA area. I'm sort of MIA on the RR team most of the time anymore, but am still around to harrass Bobby and Trish every once in a while. You'll find me over on the "Outdoor People" team where I'm the administrator. Looking forrward to meeting up with all of you, but won't actually be able to stick around for the race.

Please join me there!

My name is Julie (Spark name: JEM0622). It looks like me and the other half, Jim (not on Spark) will be registering for this event. We reside in Frederick, MD. Jim is training for a May half and an October full. I will be ready for my first 5k of 2012. No set agenda as yet as we just firmed up the sitter. Likely to get in the night before, stay overnight, and eat a meal before heading back to the ranch. emoticon

Hello Everyone-
I'm Chris! I just moved to Pittsburgh in August and am attending Law School at Pitt. I wanted to get out and get back in the groove of running and Marathons (I have done a few events in the past along with several triathlons) and thought this was a good place to start. I'm excited to be a part of the team!

Hi everybody! I'm signed up to run the half marathon, which I'm just planning to run at my training pace as a test run for the Pittsburgh half in May. I'm just coming from the east end of the city, so not too far. I'm really looking forward to meeting everybody--this'll be really fun!

Hey everyone. I just signed up to do the Pittsburgh half marathon and then went searching Spark for teams and found you guys.
The 8.1 looks perfect for me in March. You seem like a great big freindly family here and I'm excited to join you!

I might have introduced myself when I signed on to this team, but that was months ago. I signed up thinking I would be walking the 5K, but since then, I completed a C25K program and have jogged several 5Ks. I've never been a runner - actually hated it all my life and I'm in my mid-50s! Got the bug now though.

I'm from the Buffalo, NY area and I'm looking forward to a trip to Pittsburgh in March.

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. Can't wait to meet everyone in person!

I am not sure if I posted earlier but I don't have time to go back through 4 pages, lol.

This will be only my 2nd 1/2 and first time to Pittsburgh! (Huge Steelers fan). I am driving from the Dayton OH area with Tom (MCCOURT).

Can't wait to see so many more Sparkers and see those from the AF marathon again!

Yay John! You decided to join us? How awesome! Too funny that I'll likely have to drive 8 hours to finally meet you - lol! I'm not sure exactly how my plans will work out for that weekend - won't know till I get next semester's class schedule worked out - but let's keep in touch about possibly car pooling. My car already knows the way ;o) Any other Toronto Sparkies going that you know of?

Not to mention, a few others that I got to meet at the AF half this past September!! AND, i keep hearing just how COOL Coach Nancy is ;-) So, very excited and will be happy for you guys to have me along for the ride! This April was my FIRST ever HM, i now have 2 HM and a 1/4 marathon medal on display, can't wait to add to my growing collection! Try as I may though, I'll never catch Flip Flop Laurie when it comes to the BLING department! emoticon

It's been a while since I seriously checked in to this team and see that it has gone viral! Did you guys ever dream that sparkers would be coming from all over for your little short run? I'm begining to think I need to work toward a half...I mean why not? Where better to go for it than surrounded by so many of my friends?

Hi all, I'm Shari from Springs,PA (2 hours South of Pittsburgh, Somerset County right on the Maryland border).
Really hoping to do either the 5K or 8 mile depending on where I am in training. Also work every other weekend so need to see if I am working or can get a trade with a co-worker.
I read most of the reports from JASR 2011 and it sounded like a blast, sure hope I am able to join you all!

Hello Friends!
I don't know if I'll be running or walking yet, but I'd like to do it. I did a little running a couple of years ago, but I haven't really gotten back into it since having some foot problems. At the moment, I am a 20-mile a day bicycle commuter, and I love it. I am from the Maryland side of the Washington D.C. metro area.

Hi, as my Spark username would indicate, I am from Buffalo, NY. I stumbled upon this team when I was responding to another Sparker's blog and visited that person's Sparkpage, but I don't remember who that team member was.

I am aiming to come to the event and look forward to getting to know more about some of this team's members.

I'm not a runner, but I enjoy participating in local 5K races as a walker/jogger. I usually attend with my younger sister who is a runner and she always encourages me at the finish line!

I hope everyone is having a great day!

Hi my name is Robert and I am seriously considering coming. Got the link from Jan Frandsen. The time seems like it will agree with my work but I cant make that iron clad... my work is pretty demanding but the lure of a major Sparkmeet is too much to resist. sounds like alot of real positive energy.

I am from Michigans Upper Peninsula - Marquette area specifically.

I'm running my first Half on July 4 (one week! gulp!) with my Tribe - Galloway training program group. I run :30/:30 intervals now, hoping to switch up to 1/1 after the Half.
Thanks,

Hi. I'm Sheri and I live near St. Augustine, FL. I'm planning on running my first 1/2 marathon in November in Savannah and maybe another in January at Disney. March in Pittsburgh might be a little cold for my Florida blood, but I'm going to see if I can make it.

Hello Everyone!
My name is Dianne and I live in Ohio. I am started the Couch to 5K program tonight! I am making a commitment right now at the start that I will do this run in March. Being part of this group will help me have a goal to reach. I hope to be able to do more than 5K by March but we will have to wait and see.
I look forward to meeting everyone!

Hi!

I'm relatively new to Pittsburgh--I moved here in July of 2010 to teach at Pitt (Go Panthers!) and I just LOVE the city! I've been in Philly for the past 10 years before the move, and the Burgh is so much lovelier than its eastern neighbor.

I'm working on getting into jogging...right now I call it my "jiggle jog", but I'm up to 3 miles without stopping :)

I would love to participate in the JASR in 2012, particularly as it will give me a great goal to work towards! :)

Thanks! You're aren't kidding....it really is!! I even just ran a 10K leg of the God's Country Marathon in Potter County (right next to me here in Port A). I'm originally from Tionesta in Forest County, PA, so I'm used to it!

I'm Jessica and I live about 3 1/2 hours north of Pittsburgh in a small town called Port Allegany, which is about 20 miles south of the New York border. I am so excited that there is an event where so many people from SP will be there so close to home. Hi everyone!

Hi!

I'm kind of new to the whole fitness thing, I started running in October of 2010 but quickly had to drop out due to a severe knee injury. I'm slowly working my way back up to running. I'm planning on beginning my 5k training again this week using the couch to 5k plan.

Hopefully with no further injuries I'll be able to run in Pittsburgh with everyone! I have some friends out there who have been trying to get me to come out there!


I'm a recent transplant to Scranton PA!

I was born and raised in Eastern Ohio, however my mom is from Beaver Falls. I currently live in Western Ohio. I have visited the Pittsburgh area quite a lot and thought this would be a great way to see some of the town I may not have seen yet.

Hey everyone! thanks for the welcome! I no longer live in PA, I'm over near Canton Ohio, but only about and hour + from Elwood and the old stomping grounds. Love knowing there are Spark People close by. You will have to have a spark group meeting sometime in the summer and get together just for the fun of it.

Saw this in the daily spark blog...I am only about an hour or so from Pittsburgh in Girard Ohio (near Youngstown). I am more into riding my bicycle than running but I love to walk and have actually found myself enjoying short jogs on occasion.
