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!!

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

  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.

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.

Happy Valentine’s Day! February 14, 2012

Who is running with me tonight?

I know it’s Valentine’s Day and many of you may already have big plans for celebrating this sweet holiday with someone special or a group of friends – but if you’re not already celebrating, come hang with us tonight.  Running or any form of exercise is a great way to “take care of yourself” – and Valentine’s Day is the perfect day for some self-indulgence.

“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
~Oscar Wilde 

We can end our run with a stop for a snack or if anyone is up for it…treat ourselves to something sweet maybe?  Or just join us for the run and head off for your own evening.

Happy Monday Everyone! February 13, 2012

Just a quick note – this Sunday is our monthly Morning Walk & Coffee.  A low-key, slow paced walk around Glendale.  Sort of a meet-n-greet event for our meetup.  No running, just walking…easy and a chance to meet everyone.

RSVP for Sunday

If you can’t make it on Sunday, that’s ok, pick another run and join us!  We have a big variety of beginner runners.   Some of our members are doing more walking than running, others are running short distances and some are racing past the rest of us — doing the full 5+ miles and able to do more.  No matter where you are on your running journey – you’ll be inspiration to our members and be inspired by others.

Hope to see you Sunday!

Awesome day! February 12, 2012

Today was awesome!  Eileen and Lisa and I did the Firecracker 10K Run this morning.  I believe Natsuko was there also – we just didn’t spot her – she must have zoomed past us. J   The hills were painful, but we powered through and finished like champs.   Yay!!!

Next weekend is the Rock-n-Roll MarathonKim is running this one…and Claudio is running the Bandit Trail Run – good luck guys!

A little inspiration for the week:

This week we have four runs…

Our next event is the Downtown Dash, March 11th.  This one is just a 5K, (that’s 3+ miles) a nice route around Glendale.  Register and RSVP on our Meetup here:  http://www.meetup.com/crawlwalkrun/events/51342732/  that way we know who will be there – and we can run together.

A Great Weekend! January 22, 2012

Four of us braved the rain on Saturday morning.  The river was speeding by and the tunnel we take to the park was flooded with water so we stayed on the river path.

         

We got soaked, but it wasn’t too cold, just wet.  I wish I had some pictures of how wet we were, but my shoes are still drying today.   We did learn a few things about running in the rain.

1)       What to wear;

  • a thin, water proof jacket,
  • thin pants, with a draw string to keep them from falling down when they get wet and heavy,
  • gloves to keep your hands warm,
  • and a hat (preferably something with a brim to keep the rain out of your eyes)

2)      Bring a few extra things for after the run;

  • a towel to dry your face and to sit on during the car ride home,
  • extra shoes/socks,
  • and a dry shirt/jacket..

 

Today seven of us met in downtown Glendale at Chess Park for our 2.2 mile walk. There were 3 new members we had a nice easy walk and then stopped to chat with some coffee, tea and a snack.   We had a little confusion with our meeting place today with the Downtown Dash folks there for a training day, so we will change next month’s location.

There are 3 runs schedule for this week;

It is supposed to rain tomorrow, but warm up as the week progresses.  Good weather for running.  Hope to see you this week.
