Thanks for everyone's recommendation.

Based on Candy's success with the Jeff Galloway program, I decided to give it a try. I wanted to do the one in Portland, but couldn't help eye the one in Lake Oswego where they run pretty much in my backyard. I have participated with the group the last two weeks, and they are super nice. I got the T and the book today (yeah ~ I am officially the newbie). It's a small group with various time intervals ~ I think it will be right up my alley.

Thanks again, and hope to see some of you in 2012.

Chas

Chas, that's the Galloway way, yes. I sent you info about the Portland group for more specifics, too.

You might check with Robin (Kashmir). I know she was doing a group thing in Vancouver and I think it might have been fit right. I get the emails from fit right and keep thinking about joining but just not sure I'm ready to make that long of a committment yet. Hope you survived the move.

Chas, I think it's awesome you're considering this!

I haven't run with this group in particular, but you've heard me prattle on about my Galloway tribe! Running with others makes SUCH a difference and certainly helps make the miles fly by (most of the time anyway).

Hopefully someone who knows this group, or knows someone who knows someone, can provide you with some insight.

I almost signed up for that one too. But I decided on doing the Foot Traffic University program instead (mostly because I got a deal on it for almost half off.) But I've heard good things about both! Have fun!

I am thinking of joining the Fit Right NW program in Portland running fron Jan 30th to Jun 17th. It's $120, and I could really use a boost.

Here is the link: http://www.fit-right-nw.com/5k-10k-trainin
g-program.html

I was wondering if anyone has participated in the program or thinking about joining?

I would love to hear your thoughts or know of a similar program you do like. I live in Tigard now, so I have a little more options with traveling to/from Portland.

Thanks,
Chas
