I am Glenn, originally from Pittsburgh now living 300 miles away near Philly. Coming home to do this race (Half Marathon) and see old friends, family, and anyone else I can meet. I have run around the park in my younger days but never for a race so this will be fun.

Jenny, that would have been an easy pick up...usually zip down 43 on our way south to anywhere! We will be driving our car out for the race then we need to drive to St Louis where we shop and stock for a trip on private railcars out to CA and back to Chicago..then zip back sown to St Louis on Amtrak to pick up our car for the drive back home...Crazy lot of miles but the work trip will help to pay for this fun trip and husband's new vehicle.

You can't do it...I'm way to entertaining...Just ask Tammy or Gail or Beth or Nancy or Deej or Jenny or...or...or anyone else who has had the opportunity to meet me....ROFL!

Better yet, you might just want to stay away...I'm a bad influence

Yeah, that is too bad - are you taking the train? I thought I saw something along those lines. Otherwise you could have just driven down 43 and picked me up! :)

Bobby - I think I'm going to drive it. Flights from MKE are about $178, so I think it will end up being cheaper to drive. I'm set up for a price alert, though, just in case!

I'm John from the Friendship neighborhood in Pittsburgh's East End, about half an hour away from the race, and a proud Pitt fan, so don't let the JoPa fool you.

I'll be doing the 30K run as a prep for the Pittsburgh marathon in May.

I'll also be staying away from recent marathoner Suezette and all her bad influences. Or not...

jenny- you can do this yes you can! did you check into a flight, it may actually be cost effective considering the time on the road, wear & tear on the car, meals on the road, etc... something to look into. there will be a few of us picking people up from the airport(carrie got a flight from phillie to here for $63)

colleen - reading is not too far of a drive i hope that you can make that one

Hi, everyone! My name is Colleen and I'm from a small area north of Reading, PA. I'm tentatively thinking about running the 5K. I don't know for sure yet if it'll be feasible for me, but I'm excited about the prospect of meeting other Sparkers in person for the first time.

Oh, please do it! It will be so much fun! I haven't done this race before but for others I have done with race day pick up...not a problem really although i was hyped thinking there would be some glitch (there wasn't) As far as walking instead of running...yes, there will be spark walkers...my husband is not a runner and has no interest in running...ever...but he will be walking the 5k and he has never walked alone!! LOL The other thing I have found even when I've run races...many of us do walk intervals...there is no shame in that, so whatever you do...please do it!! I can't wait to meet everyone!

I am thinking of doing this. I am from Bedford and come to Pittsburgh every month to do meat and egg deliveries to my customers during the off farmers market season. Are there any other SparkPeople walking. I don't think I am at the point where I can run yet. I won't be able to pick up my packet ahead of time. Has anyone done this before to know how much of a problem that will be picking up my packet the morning of.

Hi ! I am Linda from Edgewood. I am looking for the link to register for this run ( well, I will be walking, but still...) ! Is there a spark team ? Have you linked to the Pittsburgh spark team somehow? I know I am not the most technologically astute sparker in the burgh, but I would like to get signed up AND let other Pittsburgh area residents know what happening as well !!!! Thanks !!!!This looks exciting !

Hey y'all!
I just realized, I never posted to this thread!
I'm Kirsten from Mississauga, Ontario (till July, then I'm from Peterborough! lol!) and I'll be there, running the 1/2. It will be my second HM, my first one was HARD on me. But give me a few more months to train and I'll be ready!
My dh is in the process of shutting down his business, and money is going to be REAL tight by March, but I'm not going to let that stop me! This will likely be my one and only race this year. So excited about meeting up with all my Spark peeps!!!

Bummer Jill, but you have to have priorities and well money does need to take care of family first...I guess...still hoping nothing comes in the way of our doing this. Marti,at the risk of offering advice when it isn't specifically asked for...often shin splints are the result of too long a stride...try shortening your stride a bit and see if that helps. hope so.

:( All, I'm sorry to say that I have to back out of JASR. We ended up having to buy both a new computer & a new tv this week- which depleted my hopes of having any race money. I'm bummed- I was really looking forward to seeing Spark friends and meeting new ones. Hopefully next year...and if you ever come near Richmond, look me up!! :) Run for the Dream 8k & HM is in May if anyone is interested.

Hi, everyone! I live down by Washington, PA and am excited to make the trek up for this! emoticon I will register for the 5k - not sure yet if I'll be walking or running. Every time I run I get terrible shin splints, so if I can find a solution for that, I will be running! emoticon

Deej, I was so excited after that race that even if I fell in, it wouldn't have put a damper on my great mood. That HM was truly one of the best and not just the run part but everything else that followed.

Now, if I could just sit my butt in this chair long enough to blog about it, you'd all know how great a day it was!
