Hi,

Hope it's not too late to sign up for the Half..

I'm new to the team today.. I'd like to walk it..

Read my Spark Page if you want. It's been a long, long time since I've done any kind of road race of any kind but have a great desire to find my feet again. Going slowly.. Have a very busy life but I'm determined. Turning 50 this year so going careful and taking my time.

Hey All! I'm Kimberly, I have not signed up YET, but this is a perfect destination race for me. I live in Texas and my husband has never been to Portland, but is determined to possibly relocate there someday?! I have completed the Big D, OKC, and RnR Seattle. I have struggled with Plantar Fascitis to the point it is RIDICULOUS!!! I had to bail on the Vegas half and was my running groups "sue runner" and ended up stuck on the route so I ran the last 6 miles carrying everyones stuff, LOL. I plan to walk the Ft Worth half this November due to just having a baby and took off the entire time from exercise!! I don't want to flare up my PF!!!

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!!

OK, so I'm here but not really sure why. I weigh over 300 pounds and am 51 years old. I used to run and even jogged a little last year but the up and down ways I have employed for my weight have to stop. So, I thought I would set this race as a goal for getting in shape and doing something fun as well as a new personal best. I've done 10ks in the past and 9 or 10 mile runs on my own but never a half. So, I guess after one week of back on the SP and re-evaluating just how cyclical I have allowed myself to be from a fitness standpoint, I am here to declare that I am setting a new goal and that is to join you all next May and jog the entire race. I will try to define my goals more specifically as time gets closer.

I hope I don't get in your way either in the race or here in the team blog. Thanks for giving me a reason to move along.

Doug

I'm a veteran of 3 RnR races (Vegas 2009 w/a run thru wedding vow renewal, Arizona 2010 for the Desert Double Down heavy medal, & Mardi Gras 2011 an anniversary trip) My Hubs took a job in Portland in April, and when we saw this race we knew it was meant to be. Signed up the first day of registration. We will be training seperately (I'm remaining in St George Utah so my son can finish HS here) But look forward to a great race.

I'm excited to be one of the first to Rock PORTLAND!! WooHoo.

Hey Roxit22222! I think it would be a great goal to put in front of yourself, written in big bold red letters on your calendar! You've got plenty of time to get ready for it.

I found this after a quick search:
www.marathonwalking.com/

And who knows, maybe in the next year as you're getting ready, you'll add in short running intervals during your walks!

Thinking about this... I'm not a runner more of a hiker, and walker. I'm wanting to find something to motivate me and inspire me to push myself a bit more. A half Marathon seams like a big challenge to sign up for and so far away. what do you think?

Hi, my name is Candy, and I'm registered for the Portland RnR Half in 2012! I was so excited when I saw this team I bounced right on to join. Yay!

I live in Portland, have met several Sparkers, I'm part of a the local Galloway training group, and I'm running my first HM either in July (Foot Traffic Flat on July 4) or October (Columbia Gorge Half/Marathon Oct. 23)! I know, nothing like being decisive, eh? LOL Training says I'll be ready for July - confidence and knees might say otherwise!

I am Denise from Southern California and I am newly hooked on RnR races. I ran my first half in November 2010 but suffered an overuse injury as a result. My 2nd half will be the Nike Women's Half in October and from there... there is no stopping me!

The San Diego half relay will be my first RnR experience, but I'm already set on the half in Vegas and now Portland.

I am also eagerly awaiting more details on the Indian Wells NYE run and might do Pasadena as well since it is less than an hour's drive from me.



PR races:
Nov 26, 2011 - San Dimas Turkey Trot 10K (1:07:34)
Dec 26, 2011 - Operation Jack Half marathon (2:27:44)
April 1, 2012 - Carlsbad 5000 5k (29:17)

Hi Mike and Cary! I'm Tammy, and I'm thrilled to be here. I actually signed up for this race because Mike told me about the opening day registration price and well, any opportunity to meet up with other sparkers is always a good reason to register for a race!

Mike, I have followed your progress since you first joined SP and I'm so inspired by your accomplishments... and I am thrilled to finally be able to be in a race with you! This will be a great weekend emoticon
