Eventer - I don't live in your area, but II wanted to take the opportunity to thank you for the information. I followed the link in your message and took a look at the Rookie Running Program and joined the group!

This is a complete long shot, but I thought I'd put it out there.
I'm in Week 2 of SP's 5K Your Way Rookie Running Program. www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/training -p rogram.asp?p=6 I live in SW Portland, and have started running on Fanno Creek Trail starting at Denney Rd. I usually do 1.5-2.5 miles, although the actual run/walk program only lasts for 25 minutes which for me is about 1.5 miles. The rest is cooldown walking.
Is anyone else doing the program and want to join me? I jog so slowly that fast walkers could keep up with me (probably around a 16 min mile). I go MWF.
