Hello! I have recently joined the Sonoma county team, but it seems to be inactive. I am looking for some hiking buddies in the area and saw that you're part of the team. I would like to get a group of us together for a hike! Are you in? 858 days ago
Thanks for your comments. I completely understand about life and work getting crazy. That is how it seems to be for me all of the time lately. I am pretty motivated, sick of being overweight but I am getting there. Just gets really hard sometimes, especially since I am at that number on the scale that is always extremely hard to get past. It looks like you have had awesome success on this site and with the goals you have set for yourself, congratulations!
No worries! I get asked all the time how I got into HG. I was not an athlete, I was the fat girl who always got picked last in gym class. I connected with a big burly man in a kilt last year who saw me working out and said "Hey, why don't you come throw with us?"
Who'd have thought that stalking men in kilts would have brought me to such a great sport!! Last year, I just limped along. I started training with a friend who is a Personal Trainer and Professional HG athlete. It's worth it to travel 1 1/2 hours for sport specific training!! He must be good. He had a stone throwing clinic and 4 people came down from Canada to spend a couple hours with John! (I'm in Oregon, he's in SW Washington) 1288 days ago
