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!!

YAY for March! March 6, 2012

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!

Just a few more days to register for the Glendale Downtown Dash 5K before the prices go up.  They go up March 1st.    Right now the registration is $30, is goes up to $40 March 1st.    Come on guys…there are 5 of us running this one – it is a short 5K, that’s 3.1 miles.

Register (choose the team option and register with the Crawl, Walk, Run team), and then RSVP for on the meetup so we know who is running with us.

Running Again December 11, 2011

I am feeling pretty good this week.  I was able to run last week – my knee is feeling a lot better!  I’m still taking it easy but I am running!

We have a few folks that would like to do long runs on the weekend (8-10 miles), email me if you are interested in doing long runs on the weekends – and I’ll get you guys together.

As we get closer to Christmas I am sure everyone is getting busier and running can easily fall lower on the priority list. I know running makes me feel so much better – I have more energy and I feel more positive – all good during the holidays! J

We have 3 runs scheduled this week:

Hope to see you!

I just got a email on this today…I’m not sure….what do you think?

Ridiculous Obstacle Challenge
November 5th, 2011

I think it might be fun to volunteer on race day for this event.  It would give you a good feel for how the race goes, to see if we think it might be something we’d want to do next year.  Let me know if you are interested in volunteering (handing out water at water stations, helping with registration and packet distribution, stuff like that…)

Let me know!

Anyone want to join me? October 24, 2011

3rd Annual 10K Run & 5K Run/Walk
@ Universal Backlot!!


This should be a fun event, even if you are not ready for a full 5K or 10K, you can walk the 5K (3.125 miles) through the back lot of Universal Studios.   It would be fun to have a small group of us @ the event.

You can RSVP for the event and you will also need to register for the race, the link is on the page.

I would also like to keep a list of the events our members are doing – if you are planning to do an event – let me know and I’ll include that in our email updates and also put it on the calendar.  Good inspiration for everyone!!

A New Week – New Motivation! October 17, 2011

I’ve had two consecutive positive runs! Less pain, more running. Feeling more like a runner than a crawler!! I still have a long way to go, but there are moments when I feel like I can really do this…so I am going to keep moving forward.

This morning when the alarm went off, I didn’t dread the morning like I have in the past. It is beginning to feel like – “just what I do..”

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, therefore, is not an act, but a habit.”
Aristotle
