I'd love for some of us to meet up at any workout event, whether it be the St Jude Marathon, another race, anything!

I'm not running St Jude this year, as I already have a half scheduled a few weeks before and after the trauma I got from running both back to back in 2012, I don't think I could handle it again. However, if y'all do plan a meet up, I will surely come to cheer y'all on and meet some faces! We haven't had much of a meet up in several years when several of us ran the Bartlett Valentine's 5/10k together.

That would be awesome! I'm also doing the half marathon. I'd love to wear a little spark badge and meet everyone. :)

I think that's a great idea! When I ran the half marathon in 2011, there were several Memphis Sparkers participating.

I'll be doing the half marathon again this year, and I'm very excited!

Oh... I'll be walking the 5 K that is at 8 or 9 am and my kids and I will also be doing the 1 mile Fun Run at 1:30. I'm not a runner, but don't mind associating with those who are of that persuasion!

I am thankful.

There will be people from all over the world visiting Memphis and running through downtown and St. Jude the first Saturday in December for the Memphis Marathon. There are several different events, one is a 5K, one is a 1 mile Family Fun Run, plus the typical marthon, half marathon, and this year there is a 5-person marathon relay.

I am giving thought to turning the Memphis Marathon into a Spark Rally. That would just mean that we perhaps wear a paper spark badge and meet up somewhere at a designated time to say hello and celebrate each other's success with the marathon.

If there is some interest, I will be happy to set it up... and anyone that would like to help brainstorm how to do this can just let me know what your thoughts are for what we could do. I am positive there will be sparkers from all over that will participate in the marathon, so we can meet each other AND give a warm welcome to Sparkers from all over the country.

This is just in the "what do you think about this idea" phase now... so... what do you think about this idea?

I am thankful.
