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! C~
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.
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
