I've always wanted to do the Cinco de Mayo ( my birthday is 5/5) but I'm registered for the Hippy Chick quarter on 5/8. I'll have to check it out but not sure I can do that much in such a short period of time. I really want to do the Doggie Dash. Nice short run/walk.

Any chance any of you are doing the Cinco de Mayo half?

I am still working on my 5K's with a half marathon in the near future...maybe!! I am signed up for three 5K's (one includes the Warrior Dash) so I will see how well iI do in those. At 65+ I don't know how many runs I can do before I break emoticon

Hi Candy,

I really like your interval training you are doing. I mostly walk a quarter mile, and then try to jog for 1.5 miles. I just reached this goal last week (yeah). I live in Canby on the northern side. Thanks for catching up with me. Hopefully, we can meet for a 5k or something.

Hey Chazeray emoticon I'm like you, running (jogging/wogging?) on the treadmill and the neighborhood, too (I live near Madison High School) but I'm branching out for a change of scenary. Ran along the Marine Drive trail last weekend, and I'm going back on Saturday for my 5 mi. run.

I do intervals - running 1:10 min/walking 1:10 minute, so on and so forth.

What neighborhood are you in?

I thought about the Rum Run last year, sounded like fun. But didn't do it. Maybe this year. I have signed up for the Hippy Chick though.

5/22/11 - Rum Run (10k)
7/10/11 - either Fueled by Fine Wine (half) or Go Girls Trail Run (10k)

I did the Women's Half Marathon in San Francisco in 2006 and 2007. It was a blast and I have been looking to get back into it!

Wow Candy! You really have a good schedule. I did register for the Hippy Chick 10K. I'm thinking of the last/first run on the 31st-1st. Last year I didn't do anything (one walk in the winter)and after missing a few races due to injuries/illness I did a 10K and it was a killer, even though it was downhill and flat (pints to pasta). So I'm planning on doing as many 5Ks over the winter so I'll be in shape for the season

I'm scaring myself by signing up for 10Ks as it is! We'll see how those go before striving for more.

My 'racing schedule' for 2011 looks like this so far:
Feb 13 - Valentine Fanconi Anemia 5K
March 13 - Portland Shamrock Run 5K
April 3 - Race for the Roses 10K
May 8 - Cinco de Mayo 10K
June 11 - Helvetia Half Marathon & Drop Top 10K
July 4 - Foot Traffic Flat 5K
August - Hood to Coast support team WooHoo!

If I make it through those, and there aren't any conflicts, we'll see about adding others for the fall. For now, that's an awfully ambitious schedule, personally.

We'll have to def. see about coordinating SP meet-ups for these races, and others!

I'm currently working on getting in shape for a 5K. I would like to run a half but that is a couple of years in the future, but it is there! emoticon

Thanks for the link Mike! I signed up for 3 10Ks and a 5K LOL These will go nicely with the two 5Ks I'm already signed up for.

I'm not ready for a half, yet, but maybe one day.

Thanks I needed that kick. emoticon At my age I am wondering if I get into a marathon condition. But a year ago I thought a 5K was not in my future either. But I have run one official 5K this year and several in my Gym on the treadmill and a few in the local park.
A half-marathon may be in my future but need to keck a few 5K's in the head 1st. Thanks for the website it is a goal I will aim for.
