Starting a team in Palm Springs area! :)

 

I have always wanted to participate in a 5K...however, I am not a runner.

 

 

I see no teams started in my area (Palm Springs, Cathedral CIty, Pam Desert, Rancho Mirage, etc) and want to start one! I am jazzed and excited and ready to learn how to do this!

 

 

I go to the Thursday WW classes at 6:00pm, and will bring it up to them when I see them tomorrow!

 

 

This is open up to any WW person, as well as anyone who would like to get more exercise. Since there are no 5K's in our area, we can create our own, and reap the benefits of all the exercise and fresh air!

 

 

Any comments, helpful suggestions, etc are welcome!

    Hi BethAnn!

     

     

    I live in Palm Springs and am also not a runner   I would be interested in being on your team.  I do WW online... and pretty much my walking consists of my treadmill and my iPod.. so walking with others I think would be fun!

    Have we figured out how to sign up on your team through WW?  I could sign up for the 5k in Idyllwild now.. if it will help me to get put on your team.. then pretty much I guess I'd be locked into going to the 5k :P .. eeep!:0

    Count me in!  I can't run in the June 6 race because I have ELPD (English Language Program Development) training that day!  But I can still train for a 5 K.  I'd like to start out walking and work up to a slow jog.  Nothing too difficult.  Add me to the team!

    I can start walking at PSHS next week--this week I'm pretty tied up.  But I'd love to start next Monday.  4:00....wheew!  it MIGHT be HOT!!!!  I'll be late to this Thursday's meeting because I tutor for The Tribe on Tues and Thursdays from 4-6.  I'll be there, though.

    Hi Beth Ann -

     

    Saw your post.. Have you got your 5K plans set?  I am just getting ours set here in Palm Springs... Walk of the Stars.. which is going to be a walk on May 31st along the path of interesting old celebrity homes...

     

     

    I attend Jeff Bell's Sat 7:30AM meeting here in PS and have quite a list of members that are interested in joining in.  Let me know what your plans turn out to be.. and if you decide to join in with us on May 31st as well, that would be awesome...  You can share my info to anyone wanting to be a part of ours as well.

     

    Thanks, and Good Luck...

    Re: Starting a team in Palm Springs area! :)

    Yeah I was thinking it might just be 900 billion degrees as well. Soooo I have another suggestion... what about walking in the Palm Springs Mall? I'm not sure of the measurements of the mall.. but more than likely its not busy... and we have less a chance of getting skin cancer, dehydration, and heat stroke :P

     

    I will call you tomorrow BethAnn because... I signed up to be a Big Sister and I'm supposed to meet my potential Little Sister ... sometime soon.. The woman from the organization first said she'd try to set up a meeting this last Monday.. which is why I couldnt walk on Monday... then she said she couldnt do Wednesday.. but now apparently she can.. but we dont know if the kid's mom is able to bring her to the appt. Ugh! I hate it when plans keep getting changed.. anywhooo.

     

     

    Let me know what you think about walking in the mall... or if you can walk later .. like after the baseball game.. lemme know. I dont work tomorrow night.. I work Thursday and Friday.
