Hi! Just heard about this event from SANDYJAS. I'm another Chicagoan, so I'd like to join you. I will look at the links and I'll check this thread to stay posted.

I'm talking to my oldest son to see if he wants to do it with us. We would probably do the 2mile walk. . . . So I'm in

If hunger is not the problem, then eating is not the solution.

Another good reducing exercise consists in placing both hands against the table edge and pushing back.

There's really nowhere to park around Columbus and Balbo. We could meet at Buckingham fountain, the rose garden, or come to think of it, there's the hotel at Michigan and Balbo. Maybe we could meet in the coffee shop.

We all want to walk together not run. That's why we would all like to have Spark t-shirts with our Spanrk names on the back. Then just figure out where we can all meet and walk together.

To get personalized t-shirts go to www.cafepress.com
You may have to search for the Plus-size shirts but they are there, too. I am wearing one right now. I ordered one with my screen name, Dorothy1331 on it and the words CATCH THE SPARK with a flame graphic which is also available at Cafe Press. They are a bit pricey, but I think its worth it.

Hey Dorothy, that was what Melisa and I were talking about yesterday. To have out user names on the back which would be pretty neat. emoticon

Cafe Press sells them and will personalize them. They also have plus sizes for those of us who haven't reached our goals. I am going to order one and have my Spark Name printed on the back. Fun!

That would be good if we ordered them and just wrote our Spark names on the back with a marker. I bet we would run into other sparkers there. there's gotta be more than 3 of us interested in this. BTW, I don't run, I would walk it. How could we get out the message more?

The do have tees you can buy. Check out the STORE on the right side of the orange tool bar. On page 3 is a great tee - From a tiny spark may burst a mighty flame. It's $16.25 with $9.10s+h making the total $25.35. It says shipped withing 24 hours during business days.

If we do want to order, maybe we can order all at once. We just have to figure out how many of us will be there together. Or do it individual, just at the same time.

And if we do get the shirts from there, when we get them, have out names on the back, mabe our user names, i.e. METALLICAT1.

If they don't sell them here we could make 'em on Cafe Press. Look at the top left side of the page, below the ad banner, where it says "spark people, make your life an adventure" - we could cut and paste.

Give us more information, sounds fun and it might just get me to finally register for a race.
