Definitely, anyone who is there, please join the group for a photo op! I'd love to meet you!

I'm wishing that we were coming down tonight instead of tomorrow morning, but it really doesn't matter. Looking forward to seeing as many as possible tomorrow at OSF and Sunday morning (race day!) before the race. Call or text me as well, 206.353.7037!

Looking forward to dinner tomorrow! Keeping my fingers crossed for a dry day Sunday and not so muggy.

CBailey - you are not in the last corral - I am in one behind you (and think there may be more). Hope to see you all there. I will be the one with the purple hair in the woggers corrals =)

GetFit2Live - you are right - we all get to the same finish line - perhaps faster than we had planned, perhaps slower than we wanted...but we all get there ...eventually =)

I'm fine wherever you want to meet--hopefully I can find it and be there on time, LOL!

I'm in corral 16 . . . 'cause when I signed up I thought I'd be faster, not slower, than last year.

Ah well, it doesn't matter who you pass (or who passes you) at the start, only at the finish, or so I've been told.

I was just looking at the course map and came to the same conclusion! Looks like we'll be lining up stretching back toward the Hawthorne anyway since we'll be heading North up Naito initially.

Start time is 8:00. I'm in Corral 22. The last one? LOL Hmmm...

We can shoot for 7:30 am
That should give everyone time to get there, do the bag drop, find their corral, then mosey over to the bridge to search each other out before the start?

Waterfront side would be best, since the street will likely be full of people. There are two sets of steps to get up onto the Hawthorne from the bike path. Let's meet next to the south-side steps - the ones furthest away from the starting line.

Yes? No? Other suggestions?

Salmon Street Springs might be too close to the starting line for a photo, how about we all meet under the Hawthorne Bridge at a specific time?

I will take a look at the waterfront and their layout for the race when I get home tonight, and get back to you here. I am thinking by the Salmon Street Springs Fountain, but want to take a look at distances first.

I've learned it is better to meet up before the race for photo ops...Like at one of the fountains or the PDX Spirit, somewhere like that.

Last year I was hurting so bad when I finished, Kate took me off to the medic's tent to get wrapped up in ice. I am really looking forward to a re-do this year, even if it won't be under my name.

We'll hope to see you out on the course Robin!

No plans yet for a photo - I think we hoped to get one last year, but everyone scattered once they finished, understandably so! I think I was the last one in then, and likely will be again this year. We can certainly try to meet up in the S section for SparkPeople.

Sure wish I could join y'all at dinner Saturday! Ended up with free tickets to see Falstaff, and I can't pass that up. Any plans for a meetup before the race begins for a photo maybe?

Love the new pic Candy. I just need to get off my bum and put my legs to work. I thought I would get on a roll after the Fanconi. Would love to get out and do the waterfront loop today but am stuck tied to the reception desk.

LadyRino that would be great! We'll plan on meeting at the Old Spaghetti Factory.
0715 SW Bancroft Street Portland, OR 97239

We'll shoot for an early-ish time - say 5? That way we can dine and gab, and still have time to get to bed at a reasonable hour for the early morning the next day!

I know Roxit has plans for Saturday and said she won't be able to join us.
I'm hoping Gaye will be there again.

If you know of anyone else, poke them and see if they're interested.

OSF works for me. I'm not sure if we'll be at the same place or not, but we will have a car and cam go most anywhere. Yes, it will be fun, no matter what!

It's going to be a good time, Denise! Walking or running or any combination thereof, no matter how my hip complains!

Did the Spaghetti Factory work for you last time? We can head back there again, or try somewhere else that might be more convenient. Will you be staying at the same place this year? We could pick something along the Max line.

Let's get a roll call of who will be in Portland the weekend of the Rock'n'Roll Half.

If you'll be in town, would you be interested in getting together with other Spark People for dinner the night before the Half? No pressure - purely an open offer. I'm pretty sure GetFit2Life and I, with hubbies, will be getting together Saturday evening. The more the merrier!
