We had a great run this morning…it was great to see everyone.  The Chinatown Firecraker Run is coming up this next Sunday (2/24/2013).  There are already 9 people RSVPd for the run, it’s going to be FUN.

firecrackerThe opening ceremony is very cool, Dragon dancing and the lighting of 100,000 firecrackers. Here’s a video of the event last year!

It’s not too late to sign up.  There are few of us going to do the 5K as nice slow pace – so don’t be shy it is a great time!

I’ve also added a couple of week night runs – 1 at the park on Fridays and 1 at the Silverlake loop on Tuesdays.  We’ll try these for a while, see how they go…hope you can make it.

Have great weekend everyone!

Happy Wednesday Folks!

 

The event this morning was wonderful…you have to see the park and the facilities that Glendale has put in for us to enjoy along the river – it is pretty cool.  I will schedule a walk along the river path…we should take a walk along the whole route to enjoy it.   Not only has Glendale made good use of the land there along the river, converting it all to recreational space, but there are 2 more phases of plans for the RiverWalk – the 3rd phase will include a bridge over to Griffith Park!

Other good news for our river path….I heard today that there are plans to put in a bridge just a few yards from the tunnel we use today.  This would be from the east side of the river over to the park.

You can read more about it hear.

I am hearing that it will maybe done this spring!  There are also plans for one in Burbank – from the Bob Hope Park.

 

And finally, why I started this email….there is a Holiday Bike Ride in Glendale on Saturday.  I can’t go, but I wanted to pass on the information for the rest of you.   It is a small group in Glendale of walkers and bikers, this is a low-key easy group – just riding around the neighborhood looking at Christmas lights and getting some hot chocolate!

Check it out — let me know if you go….I would love to see pictures.

Happy Monday Everyone! May 7, 2012

I have been a HUGE slacker these last couple of weeks.  Busy with work, end of year activities with the kids and….oh….I’ve  been lazy! J   But I am kicking myself into gear – I’ve updated our calendar so we now have our 3 runs per week on the calendar(I missed scheduling runs for last Tue and Thur..so we had an unplanned break!).  I have also put a couple of Griffith Park hikes on the calendar each month.  Should keep us outside and active.

This week:

Hope to see you this week!!

It was a beautiful weekend! April 2, 2012

A record breaking 12 folks @ at our Saturday morning run and Sunday turned out to be a beautiful day.  We walk the route of the Victory for Victims Race @ Balboa Park on Sunday and then up to Millard Canyon for a little adventure.  I think we have more hiking in our future, we had a GREAT time!

This week – 3 runs…and Sunday is Easter!

Coming up this month we have a few events;

Have a GREAT week everyone!!

In addition to our regularly scheduled runs, we have got the 2 more events on Sunday.

Those of us running the CATS – Victory for Victims run on Sunday, April 15th – are planning to check out the race route on Sunday, April 1st.   Then later we have the Millard Canyon Hike @ 2pm.  I’ll send a note out later in the week to see if anyone wants to carpool.

Don’t forget about the runs!

Have a great week everyone!!

Yay for US!!! March 12, 2012

Don’t forget about our REWARD DAY @ the spa!

dtox Day Spa Happy Hour  
There is a spa right across the street from the Los Feliz Café where we meet for our Saturday runs – and they have a HAPPY HOUR!   On Friday, March 23rd, from 6 pm – 9 pm.   That’s right, one night, one 20 minute treatment, wine & appetizers and a DJ…sounds like happy hour to me.  Regularly $39 – but for our group $35!   RSVP – and call the spa to reserve your treatment.

There are three running events this week:

Have a GREAT week everyone!

 

A couple of non-running activities to think about….. March 10, 2012

We talk about these things often, so I thought we should DO some of them!

  1. Early Summer Camping Weekend 
    We have talked about taking a camping trip…I LOVE camping…so here it is – my proposal for a group trip.  If you are interested – answer a few questions and then I can get planning!
  2. dtox Day Spa Happy Hour 
    There is a spa right across the street from the Los Feliz Café where we meet for our Saturday runs – and they have a HAPPY HOUR!   On Friday, March 23rd, from 6 pm – 9 pm.   That’s right, one night, one 20 minute treatment, wine & appetizers and a DJ…sounds like happy hour to me.  Regularly $39 – but for our group $35!   RSVP – and call the spa to reserve your treatment.
  3. Scenic Leisure Hike – Millard Canyon 
    An easy hike next month – in Millard Canyon.  Millard Canyon is just north of Pasadena/Altadena.   This is a leisure hike – about 3 miles total, with some adventure navigating over and across a small stream – which leads to a small waterfall.   I enjoy this walk, it is good for kids, dogs and anyone else that wants to be outside – just relaxing!    By April we might have enough melted snow to make for a real waterfall.

Happy Thursday !

The Glendale Downtown Dash is SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY (add, deep echoing voice for fun)

Just some quick reminders and information about meeting up on Race Day.

  • Don’t forget to set your ahead one hour the night before, Daylight Savings begins on Sunday, March 11th – RACE DAY.
  • Meeting on Race Day. We will try to gather as a group before the race on the south-east corner of Brand Blvd. and Wilson Avenue (in front of the dentist office there) @ 7:30. The race starts on 8:20 am on Sunday, in front of the Alex Theatre – just a half a block away. My cell phone number is 323.774.9959 – send me yours so we can locate each other on race day.
  • Picking up your race packet. Join us on the Saturday before the race at the Griffith Park Run …we can take it slow and easy – have breakfast (my favorite part of my Saturday morning). Then we can walk across the street to pick up our event bibs and t-shirts at A Runner’s Circle. If you can’t join us for the Saturday run, you can pick up your packets from 10 am – 3 pm @ A Runner’s Circle (3216 Los Feliz Blvd., Los Angeles 90039). Or you can pick it up at registration on race day @ 7 am.
  • Parking. You can park Orange Street garage (near the corner of Orange and California) – parking is free until noon on race day for runners.
  • Sunshine. Looks to be a sunny, cool morning 55-60°F PERFECT running weather.

See you SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY!

Daylight Savings ends this month (on Sunday, March 11th) – which means it will be getting dark later and that means we can switch up our Tuesday and Thursday running venue.  Let me know if you have any suggestions for where we should try next.

We have three runs this week AND the Glendale Downtown Dash:

And then on Sunday is the Glendale Downtown Dash – there are 9 of us participating!  It’s not too late to join us.

 

Hope to see you this week!

We’re growing! February 27, 2012
