Congrats to you two for getting registered, since the race was filled in 15 minutes. I just registered for the Half Creek HM myself, should be a fun spring!

Right now I do all my running on a treadmill, a youngster keeps me tied to the gym, once it warms up I run up Shaw mt. and as far as I need to up Rocky Canyon Road. Not sure how much info is in it but there is a book called "Boise Trail Guide" by Steve Stuebner It says it has 75 Hiking and Running routes close to home. I just got it from the library, so don't know much about it. Might be something for you to look into:-)

RunningMom,

Do you have any suggestions for hills/trails to train on? As soon as the weather gets a bit nicer, I want to start training in the foothills.

My sister is going to do the Bloomsday run this year! She wants me to do it with her, but I don't want to drive 6 hours:-)
I think any run with hills is difficult, yet rewarding when you complete it! Good Luck Ryan!

I have a feeling people might think it's harder for two reasons: 1) You're running on trails instead of a road; 2) You're having to run uphill twice. I figure it'll be easier to get a # for Dry Creek than Robie, plus, I'd rather run up two hills, than one long one :).

Ryan

P.S. I'm thinking of doing Bloomsday in Spokane one year too, I've heard that's a killer due to the hill at the end :).

Ryan, I've had friends tell me that Dry Creek is actually more difficult than Robie. I wouldn't know as I haven't done Dry Creek. But it's definitely easier to get into.

I figured I'd try Dry Creek HM first, looking to maybe run Robie in '11.

Hi
I am new to Spark, but I wanted to add my two cents. I have run Robie 2yrs in a row, and I am training for it again this year. Its a great race. My mom is training to walk it.

There is a training schedule on the website that I am sure you can apply to walkers. It is such a fun race! I love it!

It is a hard race. 8 miles uphill and 5 miles downhill. But the atmosphere, theme and volunteers definitely make it worthwhile.

Is it a pretty hard race? I walk alot and have walked in a couple half marathons and would like to give this one a try as well. How do you find out about all the races that you have done?

PJWells - there are a LOT of people that walk it. If you check past results, you'll see people finishing between 1:15 and 5 or 6 hours.

My DH and I did Robie the past two years. I don't think we're going to do it this year though.

I have recently started running again and am in training for Robie Creek. I have a buddy who has done it for several years and is going to run it with me...if we can get in.

Are there very many people that walk in Robie Creek? I have thought about walking it if I could ever get signed up.

Wow! Three years in a row! Very impressive! Hope you get in!

The choices you make today will determine the path that your life will take.

Some people try to turn back their odometers. Not me, I want people to know 'why' I look this way. I've traveled a long way and some of the roads weren't paved.

Not me! That is too daunting a race for me! Are you? Have you run it before?
