Welcome back Gaye! Hope you had a great vaca - we missed you emoticon

The Valentine run was lots of fun. We were very happy to meet Chas and expand our Spark-family, and can't wait to get together again. Bill's hip and knee bothered him a bit, so we took it easy on the walk, and still managed to have a great time.

Yesterday's run was fun as well, although that 'gentle' uphill was a misnomer! I need to find and conquer a few hills apparently. The organizers of the HeartBreaker did great putting it all together.

I need to sit down and go through my Event magazine and pull out other races to post. I know these aren't the only ones and I'm sure (hopeful?) there are other people, walkers and runners alike, who'd like to join in for the fun of it.

Here's to finishing February strong!

Hi Gaye,
The run was actually a lot of fun. I was really nervous being it was my first 5k in awhile, but Candy and her family are super sweet. If you can make the Shamrock run, that would be fabulous. I would love to meet more fellow Sparkers, and of course more people to get my butt moving ~ lol.

Chas

Chaz and Candy, how was the race last weekend? Sounds like you got to meet up, how cool! I thought about doing the race today but decided I probably wouldn't want to get up early my first day back from vacation. Good decision. So now I'm looking for a race soon. I'll have to check out the Shamrock run.

I will. The last mile on the Sunday run did something, but it is starting to feel better. Lots of stretching. I wish I could join you, and will do my sunshine dance to keep the rain and wind away. You are such an inspiration. Have fun.

It is MUCH more important that you rest and take care of that knee so you're ready for March! You ran a GREAT race on Sunday emoticon so proud of you.

Bill and I did sign up for it last night LOL He'll be walking, and I'll be running. I explained I wanted.. well, NEEDED to get my official 5K run done for February, so we're going for it.

Oh poop. My knee is being cranky right now, but I would have signed up. I am trying to lay off of it this week, so I will be ready for the Shamrock run.

WooHoo Chas! That's awesome emoticon I'd love to meet up, yes!

We'll have to coordinate where to meet, since "under the Morrison St. bridge" is pretty broad and will likely be crowded. We could always shoot for the fountain at SW Salmon and SW Naito? That's close to the starting point, but should be far enough away that it's not swamped with people. Or, I'm open to suggestions.

How exciting!

Gaye, I think I'd almost rather be in Mexico with you. In fact, I KNOW I would LOL

Chuck, it'd be great to get to meet you finally emoticon but if not this time, I'm sure there'll be plenty of chances.

I thought I'd see if anyone has any plans for races this month. Bill (the hubby) and I are signed up for the Valentine Fanconi Anemia 5K,8K and 12K Run/Walk on Sunday, Feb. 13.

www.valentine5k.com

I'm running the 5K, Bill is walking the 5K, and our daughter Courtney is running the 8K.

What about you? Are you doing this race? Perhaps another one? I know the Heartbreak Half is Sunday, Feb. 20. Anyone?
