.........NOTICE- some NJ sparkers are getting together this saturday................
Robin is the organizer............... her sparkname is I-Can-Do-It-2-

Spark meetup/walk Saturday Mercer County Freedom Fest

For the past 2 years several of us have very happily gotten together at the park. We walked, ate, visited and some of us stayed for Freedom Fest and the fireworks. There's a picture of a bunch of us still on GERRYB54's page. www.sparkpeople.com/mypage.asp?id=GERRYB54

I just realized it’s next Saturday and am going to go. Would anyone like to meet and go with me (and Sara and my dad)? Sure hope so. We did a fun pot luck lunch.

Here's the link for the event: www.wpst.com/freedomfestival
And this one is about the beautiful park: www.nj.gov/counties/mercer/commissions/par
k/mercer_park.html

Any takers?

Robin

At this point I am not very optimistic about being able to make the August 2 walk, but don't rule me out just yet.

save the date -------------------- Aug 2 Tuesday night --------------- classic car show and Dj music in downtown Point Pleasant beach................ 5pm - 9 pm.

We can do a sparkwalk and enjoy the oldie cars and music. A fun evening.

Im hoping to schedule something for July however a good friend is having manjor surgery in early July and Im going to be the primary caretaker so July is going to be a tough month for me.

Glad you had a nice day and a nice time. I would have been there except my extended visit to family left me not getting back home until 3:30pm this afternoon. It's a shame since it would have been good timing for a 5K as a tune-up for my half marathon next weekend. Hopefully I can make the next one!

some minor statistics for those interested...................

the site says we have 103,971 NJ spark team members. My roll call topic shows we have about 250 people who at least posted that they visit the team page and are on sparkpeople a few times per week..................... We had 5 ( thats right) 5 people show up for our sparkwalk. It was great to see everyone..................... and we had some walkers and some runners so it worked out well. The weather held out - no rain and the sun even poked out a few times as we were watching the ballgame. Aside from the $20 to register for the walk ---------------------- it was a relatively inexpensive day - no charge for parking and no charge for a game ticket if you registered for the walk........................ $1 ( yes thats right) $1 if you didnt register.

Hoping we can get some more participation.............. Im going to plan a Point Pleasant Beach boardwalk - sparkwalk........................... ABSOLUTELY FREE - with an after event BBQ at my house which is a 3 blocks from the beach. Working on a date-------------- note the comment FREE................... and hoping with enough advance notice we can get a few more people to join us...........the biggest challenge will be finding a parking spot and walking to my house......................
Alsoo going to look at the free summer concerts around the area - and try to get a few get-togethers at these.............................. FREE summer concerts - all you need is a lawnchair and a BYOB --------------- they are lots of fun with a nice mix of music.

Everyone have a great sunday ---------------- this gal is legs up on the recliner................ time to rest.

Hello Spark NJ Walkers,

I checked the Lakewood Blue Claws' website and found out that they had to postpone Saturday's Double header b/c of an issue with the field. I'm not sure if anyone else was aware, but now there will now be a double header on Sunday with the first game starting at 1:05 and the second starting 30min after the first is finished. I asked them on Facebook and they said 5k runners still get a ticket and one ticket is good for both games, but it is $3.00 to park. I don't know if they will charge us in the AM for parking or not.

Looking forward to a great day Sunday and I hope everyone has fun!

So sorry that I won't be able to make it. Things have been a whirlwind due to issues with my parents and some other things I have to do. It would become a full day event for me, and right now I just cannot spare the time.

Have a great time!!! At least it looks like the weather will be good. Hopefully things will calm down by the time the next event rolls around, and I will be able to make it.

Love and regards to all.

We're back home from our trip to Mohegan Sun in the RV and ready to 5K tomorrow...I think!

I'll be there somewhere in the lot with the RV, it's a Class A Fleetwood Bounder, cream and brown color for those who don't know, NJ license plate number WEK 60Y, my cell is 732-859-4001.

I'm planning on getting there by 9:30 am, have some various sodas available and a few bottles of water, fridge will be on and available if you have something to store there.

Nancy I think is coming, will be a last minute decision for her.

See you NJ Sparkers tomorrow!

Gerry ----- with the price of gas - having the RV there is a great thought - but an expensive one.
I have never been to this locatiion so not sure about parking or access. Maybe on sunday or monday I will take a ride over there and scope out the area----- .



should be a fun day................. hoping for nice weather. AND MORE NJ SPARKERS :)

Hoping to see more people at the spark event in April........................ lets go team - we can do better than getting 9 people together.


Remember there is a fun walk - where you can walk at your own pace - and then there is a 5k where you can run at your own pace. After the races/walks - there is a baseball game which should be fun to stay at......................

hoping to see some more interest in the event ------------------------- even if you dont sign up to walk -------------- how about just coming out to join us? Im attaching the link below

I just signed up for the Lakewood 5K... my first. It's just the motivation I needed to get moving again after a long, cold winter in NJ. 17 days to prepare... won't be the fastest but I'll be there looking forward to crossing that finish line!

Kaity and I will be there. :) We're also doing a 5K the day before in Brick, so we probably won't be the fastest, LOL, but we'll be there. :)

Just wondering: are there 2 runs for spark nj or has the Asbury Park one been canceled and only the Blue Claws left. Just wanted to get that straight! I would love to join everyone! thanks...(I'm also winging between walking and jogging,(3rd week on C2YK) Also, I'm not use to jogging on concrete or asphalt yet, hard on the joints still. Been doing the treadmill and in nicer weather I jog/walk on dirt trails. I can't seem to be able to jog for the whole 30 minutes, I get sore calves and out of breath. I, too, don't want to embarrass myself, and would feel just awful coming in last place!!

We have a few people walking - and a few people doing a run-walk - and a few people running the whole way. Whichever level you want to fall into - you will have a sparker to join you.

Just come - it will be a fun day..................

Don't worry. We haven't done this event before, but I'm pretty sure my sister and I will be finishing after you. I am going to do my best, but my fibro has been really flaring and I haven't been able to get past week 1 of the 5k training. I did a 5k last April and finished in 49:55. I'd like to hopefully beat that, but if my fibro is still flaring, I probably won't, and I'm fine with that. My sister is going to walk it all and her goal is to finish in 63 minutes or less.

Did anyone participate in this event last year? I'm wondering if this is a serious event for runners only or if there are a lot of people that participate that walk or do a run/walk combo. I'm in the run/walk 5k your way training program right now. I eventually do want to complete a 5k this year but I don't want to be the last one to cross the finish line. I'm too much of a competitor and it would humiliate me personally. Any insite into last year's event would great.

Thanks!

That does sound like a great option. I've done Runapalooza before and there is a party atmosphere afterward, but it's also rather haphazard. This sounds like a great way to get everybody together - and it's on the inexpensive side as 5Ks go right now!

I'll be out of town visiting family in KY... I'll likely be driving back the 9th - if I do it in one day, I can make this, otherwise....... y'all enjoy! :)

Love the Lakewood Blueclaws - the walk sounds great! Wish I could be there but we're moving that weekend to a new apartment :( At least I know I'll be getting my exercise lifting heavy boxes.

Have fun team!!

funny how things work out..................... I have to apologize to everyone. I invited everyone to an April 16 sparkwalk that I cannot attend. Just got a wedding invitation for that day and I will have to go to that wedding.

Lady Josielot - sent the following suggestion for April 10:

I know the Lakewood BlueClaws are having a 5K run and walk on Sunday, April 10th. Kaity (KAITY_LADY) and I are going to be there. I think that would make a great Spark Walk. It's $20 entrance fee for the walk/run, and it includes a t-shirt and a ticket for the 1pm game. There's a park very nearby (Lake Shenandoah) that we could meet up for a picnic or something, too. If you pay the $20 for a shirt, you get a general admission (chair) ticket. You can also "purchase additional lawn seats for friends and family to see runners cross the finish line and see a BlueClaws game", so for $1 you can just come watch and see the game (on the Sod Squad).


They say things happen for a reason................... April 10 is a much less expensive option and sounds like a fun day. I will be sending a sparkmail out to the team with this revised event as our first official 2011 sparkwalk.

Hope to see everyone there. :) emoticon

I wonder if there is a way you can move it, or have the admins move it? Just a thought...nothing worse than two topic posts about the same event.

Are you able to delete it from here if you put it in Announcements?

Did you get the email I sent about the Blue Claws 5K event? You asked for ideas and I wrote you, but I never heard back. All the proceeds go to charity for that one too. This one is way too expensive for me. Sorry.
