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!

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.

Happy Wednesday Everyone! January 18, 2012

We’ve got 9 folks RSVP’d for the Saturday run!  YAY!

We also have an event on Sunday, it is just a social walk.  We do a 2.2 mile walk through downtown Glendale.  We stop at Starbucks @ the end for a cup of tea or coffee.  I scheduled these events to keep us moving and to allow our new members or anyone who hasn’t attended one of our meetups before to join us in a non-running event – I encourage our active members to join us as well – it is good for newbies to meet the folks who run with us.

There are a few events coming up that members are participating in;

Eileen is doing the TinkerBell Half Marathon January 29th.

Kim is doing the Rock-n-Roll Half Marathon on February 19th.

I have signed up for the Firecracker 10K on February 12th.

I know Claudio is planning to do a trail run, I don’t know which one though.

Let me know if you are participating in a local event and I’ll add it to the calendar.

Here’s a little inspiration for the week

I Believe in the Run

Hope to see ya soon!

November was a pretty tough month and I apologize for not keeping the spirit of running going these last few weeks. I hurt my knee, which kept me down for quite some time and I had a little travel in November – but I’m back guys.
So this week we have 3 runs;

• Tuesday @ 6:30 pm Burbank Chandler Bikeway
• Thursday @ 6:30 am Griffith Park / LA River Loop
• Saturday @ 8;00 am Griffith Park Loop

I hope to see you soon.
