Got my bib today - I'll be wearing #3026 and as walkers, we might end up in the same vicinity. I usually walk around 15 to 16 minute miles, sometimes a little faster and sometimes a little slower, depending on hills. This course is fairly flat but there are some tricky spots that could slow things down a bit so it will be interesting to see how fast this one goes!

Hope to see you tomorrow morning!

Yeah, I know that there are going to be a lot of people there (and, as walkers, we're going to be looking at a lot of backs!), but you never know!

I'm not sure what mine is - will be picking it up tomorrow and will try to post the number. I'll be looking for you but I understand there are close to 1,000 people registered so not sure how easy it will be to find each other - fingers crossed!!

By the way, I registered for the Progressive Marathon, too - did you?

There's also a 5K in La Palma on the Fourth of July. I've signed up for that one as well.

I'll be at that walk on Saturday! I picked up my bib and goodie bag and t-shirt last night.

If I recall correctly, I remember that you invited everyone to do the Thanksgiving (Plymouth) 5K last year. I thought about it but declined because I attend the Greater Anaheim Kiwanis Club's Thanksgiving breakfast every year.

However, I signed up for the three remaining events yesterday after the La Habra race. I didn't do it before hand because the La Habra one was my first and I didn't know what to expect or if I would enjoy it. I'm signed up to do another one in Whittier on April 28th, and I know that there are others coming up at Angel Stadium and in Irvine, but I just wanted to let people know about these, which are right in our own backyard. emoticon

Hi, Kathleen, thanks for the info - I have walked the Plymouth Rock N Run for several years now [previously did the Turkey Trot in Dana Point] and if we are in town, I may walk the Villa Park race this year but it's too early for me to commit to it - we will not be in town for the Anaheim event and I had another commitment yesterday so won't be doing the entire series.

If you like to walk these, keep in touch and maybe we can touch base for the VP or YRP events - it would be fun to have a SparkPeople team - last year I walked it with a couple of other SparkFriends so maybe we can get a good group together this year!

I walked my first 5K in La Habra, yesterday (3/24/12), and really enjoyed the walk once it started.

This event was the first of a "race series" in North Orange County this year. The others will be a 5K in downtown Anaheim on Sat. 6/9/12, a 5K/10K in Villa Park on Sat. 6/23/12, and a 5K/10K at Yorba Linda Regional Park on Thurs. 11/22/12 (Thanksgiving). You can participate in any of these or all four of these races. I found out about them through my city's recreation department, but the flyer that I have says that more information can be found at www.QuadrupleCrown.com or Active.com.

Also, for the individual races that are left: http://tinyURL.com/AnaheimRace 2012 (for the Northgate Downtown Anaheim 5K); www.VillaParkRun.com (for the Villa Park Union Bank 5K/10K); and www.PlymouthRockNRun.com (for the Plymouth Rock 'N' Run 5K/10K).
