Change of plan for me, too, Team. My sister-in-law is flying in tomorrow from Portugal. (But for the jet lag, she would probably want to participate!) So, have a great time with your family, Bonnie, and I'll enjoy my company. We'll get back to rallying soon.

Change of plans for me. My DD is flying me out to visit. Mya & Avery especially. Avery is starting to eat in a high chair. Mya took 1 oz from a bottle yesterday. Hope she can be off the feeding tube soon. GrSon is earning Wolf rank in Cub Scouts too.
Hopefully some one of our other local SP will participate in the 5k and post about it.

I plan on being there. Let's get a BIG group. $20 for students $25 for general public.
I'll make a SP FLAG we can gather around.
Who's coming?

Looks as though I'll have to miss this one, Bonnie. Some kind of bug is hanging on, in spite of my having spent half the day in bed. (And now I'm wide awake.) :( :( :(

Post some pictures, please.

I called and was told it was about 2 miles. Not bad at all. And they have a Frisbee course if we want to stop and play for a while. They do charge $4/car and $2 for the driver for parking though, so if everyone wants to save a few dollars, we could meet nearby (my daughter says Publix nearby) and just take one car in. Things to work out later.

Do you know how long the hiking trails are there? (I looked at the map on the park website, but I didn't see any measure other than the area of the park.)

I've did my first and only 5k last year in Feb at 6:30 in the morning. I walked it because I too was cautious about my abilities. Finished in under an hour, wasn't exhausted at all. So I think I could rotate between walk & jog next time.
I didn't see a Run/Walk Retiree category. I only saw categories/prizes by age. Everyone gets a tag with a chip and number; baby strollers are at the back of the pack: everyone else lines up however they want and the electronic starter records what time you go through. The speedy people take off and the rest of us chug along. I think we should stick together and encourage each other. SPREAD THE SPARK

How about this Saturday 8 am at Turkey Lake? Do you want to do both?

B-NANA, regarding the 5K I've never participated in any kind of organized race, so I need to know more about what I'd be getting into. (I'm definitely interested.) Will you be walking or running? Will you be doing the whole 5K? If I register in the "Run/Walk Retiree" category, may I still be with our group?

My company/family has moved into their new home, so my life is almost back to normal. I'm ready to walk Turkey Lake. Mornings work best to avoid the afternoon showers. Any day but Sunday for me.

Also Valencia College in Kissimmee is having a 5K on 9-5-14 to honor 9-11 heroes

This week I'll be helping my daughter's family move into her new home. That gives us one week to find a 5th person to walk with us. Shout out if you can do a weekday morning.

Check B-NANA's recent post on the SparkOrlando wall. If we can find enough people who aren't away on vacation, we can follow her lead to have fun and exercise, too!

A slow walk through sugar sand in the summer heat was a great workout.

Yesterday B-NANA and I finally went walking in Split Oak Forest. Her son, an Eagle Scout, helped to make it a delightful learning experience, as well! I have added some photos from this little adventure on my SparkPage. (Have a look.) I'd love to go there again, and I encourage anyone in our team to join us for this fun way to get exercise, fresh air and a view that certainly beats the one at the gym.

Are Saturdays an option for you, NOLE0105? (B-NANA and I will give Split Oak Park a try on Monday. If I don't expire during the outing, I'll hope to try the trek again!)

Sundays in general are not a good choice for me, but this Sunday would work. Are weekdays out of the question for you, NOLE0105?

So sorry I posted this and then went MIA. I was pretty sick for a couple of weeks and it threw me off for a bit but I'm back to feeling better....FINALLY! Split Oak Park is good for me too. Is anyone free on Sunday morning?

Just pick a date for next week before the 4th. This week has already filled up. Amazing how that happens.

I am interested in being part of a small group to walk some kind of course. It could be a one-time rally or a weekly or semi-weekly get-together. I live in Belle Isle, so Split Oak Park sounds like a good location.

Is Split Oak Park a good location for anyone? It's shady, cool, and free. My son did his BSA Eagle project there. The entrance is near the intersection of Narcoossee Rd and Boggy Creek Rd.

Hi CASSIE580! I am trying to get people together for support and fun. I would love to meet in a central area. I am near the airport. Did you have anything in mind that you wanted to do? My only request is that it's in the morning so we can try and beat the heat!

Would anyone be interested in going to a SparkRally in the Orlando area? It would most likely be a hike/walk in a park, in the morning to beat the heat. It might cost a few dollars depending on the location.
