Getting that Spark Back

NOTE: My challenge to myself in 2012 is to race 12 races. I would love if others joined in too on my spark team for it http://teams.sparkpeople.com/12races2012. I actually plan on making all the races 1/2 marathons.

I've never been skinny, but I have been fit. I'm looking to find that athletic fit girl again. The one who goes on random adventures and doesn't even question if she can complete it.

I work full time, do grad school part time and commute way too much. So ...

I work full time, do grad school part time and commute way too much. So some days I just don't feel like I have any spare time. I know I need to find that time though.

I have done the Spark with great success before (as Hockeycrew). I fractured my leg doing a 50k and fell completely behind. I'm starting over so I can really get motivated again and get back to ultramarathons.

I'm excited to get back into a routine of eating well and packing healthy food. I actually really enjoy eating healthy.

Thanks for reading and commenting on my GPS blog post. Rocky terrain (especially with lots of hills, outcroppings, cliffs, trees, etc) can often block your GPS' view of some satellites which can degrade your accuracy. Also, some rock formations can cause magnetic interference and also degrade your accuracy. Clouds can also cause similar issues. GPS signals have to be very precise, so it doesn't take much distortion to cause large discrepancies.
