Sounds like fun! Maybe I'll be ready for the half by then!

Fitness is a long Journey made up of baby steps, (think: toddler doing a marathon) so steady goes it! If you fall down: get up!

Hope everyone checks out this wonderful report Coach Nancy shared on Just a Short Run!

Pittsburgh isn't really THAT far away and I'm kicking myself for not having joined in the fun!

It would have been SO COOL to have had a Binghamton contingent there...and plans are already afoot for next year's Just a Short Run 2012!!

Here's a link to Coach Nancy's article:

Have to admit I'm one foot in, one foot out on this one...have to see how things come along for me. It would be my first official 5K which would be cool PLUS I'd really love catching up with other Sparkies...some known only online, others (hopefully) having met before at the San Diego SparkConvention.

I would love to do this, but the timing just won't work for me. =(

I've been invited by a few of the really active members (nationally) of SparkPeople to join them in "Just A Short Run" in Pittsburgh this March. I'm sure others would be welcome and it would be such a cool way to network with some SUPER PUMPED and PSYCHED members of SparkPeople!:

"Come and join your fellow Spark runners and walkers as we complete "Just A Short Run" in Pittsburgh PA on March 26, 2011. Events 5k and 8.1 m run/ walk, 13.1 m, 13.1m relay and 30k."

Feel free to SparkMail either of the two SparkTeam leaders (BOBBYD31 or JAN_FRANDSEN) if you'd like to join and they can share more details. There is someone assisting in recommending hotels / places to stay, etc. There are 65 Team members so far. Bobby & Jan are AWESOME fellows. Bobby and his wife Anne (MIAMIA7...another AWESOME Sparker!) presented at the Cincinnati SparkConvention last year and Jan is a SUPER runner / cyclist who is FOREVER doing fund-raiser marathons for many causes, but most especially cancer-related.

Let's get some of you hard-core runners (I know you're out there...lol!) to join the fun and represent our area at this hot, upcoming SparkEvent!
