Emily, I'm so glad you made it to the Color-Run. I wish we could have walked/run together, too. I'm so glad you enjoyed all those puddles. :D

The puddles were awesome! I splashed in each of them, like a little kid. emoticon

I'm sorry I couldn't find you guys. I looked and looked and then the run started.. I saw the pictures on FB. emoticon !

emoticon to HIKERBECKY, GENNICHO, KRISTINE99, GALINAZ and to me, too! We completed our 5k Color-Run this morning.

It inspired me to write a blog, which I've titled "Bitten by the Fitness Bug!"

The Color Run was fun! Raining like crazy, we were all soaked and big puddles along the route along with the colors made for some really wild looking outfits. It was warm despite the rain and easier to breathe with the humidity. Thank you all my spark buddies for coming out!

Well, it looks like we'll have cold, wet weather for the Color Run AND 15,000 are registered so it will be a mob! Julz I think you have my phone number, the map for this is lousy for identifying a meet up place - I suggest we meet up at the Tempe Center for the Arts parking lot

If I wake up in the morning and it is raining I will not be going to the color run. As fun as it may be I have a cold and I cannot afford to get any sicker. Sorry team. You may want to sparkmail DESERTJULZ your info as well as me.

Bonnie, that will be hilarious.

The boas are available at Michael's. They had low-end boas for $3-4 and nicer ones for $9.

I would like to go with you to pick up our packets! I want to see the place, the extra "Color-Run Store," and perhaps even swing by the park while we're there.

The feather boas sound nice. I'll take a look at Michael's - it's pretty close to where I work.

Perhaps we should plan to meet near the check-in on race day. Since we don't have a lot of detail, that way we'll be close to where we need to be.

Sorry I was vague when I posted the post about carpooling to Roadrunner to pick up our packets. I have this habit of thinking that everyone has all the information that I do in their head and then leaving parts out when I speak. emoticon

We can pick up our packets next Thursday and Friday afternoon/evening at Road Runner in Tempe. 43 S McClintock Dr Tempe, AZ 85281. We can pick up the packets between noon and 8PM. I managed to get Friday off so I can go either Thursday after work or anytime on Friday.

My sister, who has been to this store to pick up race packets, says it's hard to see the store from the street and she passed it once. So you really have to keep an eye out for it.

I am truly looking forward to this race.

Do we still want to wear something crazy? The tutu thing may not work but my other thought is a Feather Boa from either Joann's or Hobby Lobby?

We also need to figure out where we are going to meet. I have never been to the lake so I have no idea. Any thoughts??

We are going to have so much fun!!! Whoo Hoo!

Far as I know the light rail dumps you off right next to the lake. I am going to wear an old shirt.. I want to keep the race shirt nice so I can wear it again. I do go out and buy a white sweatshirt seeing how we have to be there so early.

I have Friday off so I will head down in the afternoon or maybe Thursday after work,

I've been looking at the Valley Metro route map. The light rail has a stop on Mill at 3rd Street. I was thinking about just taking the light rail in, but I'm not sure yet. It's about a half a mile from the station to the starting line.

I may be wrong, yet the info I received says there are only two days to pick up your packet before Race Day: January 24 & 25. That excludes going down this weekend.

Nice thing, they are giving us a t-shirt to wear, so we don't have to spring for a shirt that may end up ruined.

I don't see anything in their instructions about being near the light rail. Becky, do you know if the light rail actually runs next to this park? It would be worth paying for parking if you have to walk a mile or two from the rail...

I just read through the email with the pre-race docs and see the map for the race. I'm thinking of forking over the dough and going with paid parking at the US Airways parking. I plan to go down and pick up my packet this weekend and scope out places to meet up.

Happy New Year all!

Some of you may have read some chatter about a walk tomorrow at Dreamy Draw Park. The Color Run team wants to get some training in before January 26th! emoticon

So this is super short notice but here goes.

5Kish walk at Dreamy Draw Recreation Area

2421 E. Northern Ave.

We will meet at 3PM in the Parking lot

The park is located and the east end of Northern ave. Northern ends at the park. So you can't miss it! Travel down the park road to the parking lot. I have a red toyota corolla with lots of hiking bumper stickers and a mini mouse antenna ball. Just look for me.

We will not be hiking. (unless you want to) There is a paved bike path that is amazing. it leads thru the park to a neighborhood at 32nd street. It is a great place to take a walk and the weather is going to be beautiful. Everyone is welcome! If you are new to SparkPhoenix please join us if you can. You can walk as far as you want to.

Again I am sorry for the short notice. I have been sick and was not sure if I could do this.

Please RSVP to this email and I will send a reply with my cell number should you need it.

Hope to see you there.
Becky

That sounds like a great idea my only issue is we have to be at the start of the race by 7:30am so we need to get to the lake by 7. I will have to check the schedule and see if we can make it by then because they will be on weekend schedule. Otherwise I am all in! I have never been on the light rail before!


As far as the walk on Sunday goes. I we could meet at the Dreamy Draw Parking lot located at the end of Northern AVE just after the 51 Just go under the freeway and follow the signs to the parking lot. Northern ends at the park. I was thinking 3 let me know what you think of that time. That way folks can finish up errands and church.

I'd be okay with a tutu, I suppose. :D

I think we should also have a handful of helium baloons in SP colors of red, orange, green & blue to help the Sparkers find us on race day.

Did everyone see Steve's post about race against the rolls on Thanksgiving morning? I think that would be an excellent 5k practice for the color run/walk! I plan to RSVP yes to Steve.

We need to set up a time to meet and walk with each other. Let's chat about this.

Also a gal at work showed me how to make a Tutu. It's super easy. Thoughts?

Okay SparkPhoenix Color Run Team... Here's the deal, I think we need to come up with some crazy costume or hat or something to make us stand out on race day. What do you think? I have seen some folks in tutu's... I am sure we can come up with something seeing how we have to wear a white shirt. Please post your thoughts...
Thanks!

I am looking forward to seeing everyone out there. I am new to the SparkPhoenix team and I had already created a Color Run Team (we start at 8:10), but I can't wait to see my fellow Sparkers out there.

WE HAVE A TEAM!

Today, I created Team Registration for the Color Run. You can register by following this link:

http://thecolorrun.com/arizona/

Select Team Registration, the team name is SparkPhoenix

We are registered for the 7:30 a.m. time. If you want a different time, you'll need either join/start a separate team or register individually.

That's three of us, and I am also totally happy with a 7:30 a.m. start time.

One more person and we can officially have a Color Team! A team for this 5k takes a minimum of 4 folks.

I was looking for the dates for this just a couple days ago! I'd love to participate! My preferred start time would be the 0730 one. It's going to be crowded.

It would be great fun to put together a SparkPhoenix Team for the Color Run! Take a look at this link: http://thecolorrun.com/arizona/ and let me know if you're in.

There are three start time choices: 7:30 am, 8:10 am, or 8:45 am

Let me know your preference on start time. I'll set up the team and come back here with an update on the team name.
