Put myself in for the half, but might change my mind later. :) I'll definitely do something-- might end up being volunteering, though.

No, not yet. After what happened last year I'm a little gun shy to spend the money just yet.

Was good of you to put the reminder out there though!!

There's no chance it will fill up before March. And more than likely it will be possible to register at the expo.

Keep on rolling, just a mile to go. Keep on rolling my old buddy, you're moving much too slow.

True dat, but you may want to, at least book your hotel sooner than later .. I booked my room at the Days Inn ... it was the most affordable one's listed on the website that still had vacancies, within walking distance to the start/finish line ... :P :?

We've got reservations at an exclusive establishment in West Vancouver- ocean view, deck off each bedroom, all meals (including drinks) included, chauffeur service to and from the airport, use of a car for the weekend. I like to call it "Grandma & Granpa's house." :D

Can only imagine how this conversation started off with ... Hey Gramps and Nana ... mind if I come down for the week(end) in May with the Family ... and, a few dozen Maniacs, as well ??? :shock: :lol: :wink:

Just remember that you have to be home and in bed by 6pm ... :shifty: :wink:

Why don't you come and find out????? :wink:
It's not hilly. You go over the Burrard St. Bridge twice, that's the most elevation. http://www.bmovanmarathon.ca/database/r ... _Apr16.pdf
You could BQ in Vancouver, how cool would that be!!!!
It won't be as hot as Chicago!!!!!!!
