Bridge the Distance is tomorrow morning! I'm signed up for the 10K, but after Friday and today, logging 6.7 mi, I'm tired and wondering if I can do it or not. I guess I can decide on the fly, eh?

Anyone else walking or running?

Hi KRWILKERSON99,

Here is a link I received from Candy in another post. It outlines most of the walk/run events occurring. I found it very helpful, and allows me to plan what I want to tackle on a monthly basis.

Good morning KRWilkerson!

Usually every event is for walkers and runners. There may be a few exceptions, but most fund-raiser outtings are looking to appeal to everyone.

Both the Race for the Roses and El Puente have registration options for walkers.

It would be great if you joined in! If you'd be interested in meeting up with other Sparkers, come back and let us know and we'll see what we can arrange.

Either way - have a great walk, and great fun!

Is this walk too??? I am looking for something to give me a reason besides to get healthy to be more active. I wouldn't start this year it is to soon; I just started Sparkpeople. But I would like to know what are all the run/walk events are in Portland. Is there a website?? Or is it just to keep your eyes and ears open? I enjoy walking Portland neighborhood. I am not in the shape to run yet.

I forgot to mention - I'm transferring my Race for the Roses April 3rd 10K entry to daughter Courtney, and we're transferring Bill's 5K entry to her S.O. Steve - so Chas, if you'd like, I can hook you up with them to coordinate getting together again.

Bill will be doing the 5K El Puente, too, Chuck!

El Puente Bridge the Distance Huh?? I may give that one some thought. Maybe I can get my wife in on that one for her 1st 5K walk, since I may still be walking at that time.

You guys, I'm totally going to miss you! No really, I am - I signed up for the 10K in the Race for the Roses on April 3, but we'll be out of town in Texas instead, not returning until April 5.

One of the ladies at work did send out an invite to runners in the office for the El Puente 5K/10K Walk and Run, on April 10! It's their first event, and there's a pretty good chance of placing well in the results as there won't be that many people signed up (we think!)

I was worried about finding a race to do in April, and here this one popped up! I signed up for the 10K - I know, ambitious and totally nuts, considering it means I HAVE to run while in Texas (heat, unknown territory, family visiting, too much food, etc.) but what the heck.

I hope you all can meet up!

Oh, and Chas? Nuh-uh, YOU are! LOL

Hey Chuck, that's great. I was at the Shamrock Run as well, but wasn't able to find anyone, plus the only one I know is Candy (who is the bestest). I was amazed at how many people were there ~ had to park clear across the bridge.

We will have to meet up for the run. I have a bad knee as well that usually acts up around the 2-2.5 mile mark. I have been doing some IT band stretches on the foam roller,, and that seems to be helping.

Any who, I hope we can meet up because I would love to meet you.
Chas

I am signed up for the 5K run. Still nursing my sore knee that I aggravated further at the Shamrock Run last Sunday. I am hoping the knee will be well enough to participate.
