Running Hard Towards New Goals
Hello! I'm 51, and have really benefited from joining Spark. When I first found Spark in September 2006, I was sedentary and miserable. After a few months of reading posts, I started running and in the last five years, I've raced in an awful lot of 5k road races...

Hello! I'm 51, and have really benefited from joining Spark. When I first found Spark in September 2006, I was sedentary and miserable. After a few months of reading posts, I started running and in the last five years, I've raced in an awful lot of 5k road races... However life throws out challenges and thanks to doing volunteer work at a community theatre with crazy hours, I've been pressed for time for the last 4 years... and as a result, my running schedule has suffered... and (shudder!) I've gained weight. So... I had to get creative. I now volunteer at our local humane society as a dog walker and it forces me out in the worst weather and has helped my winter resolve. Plus, I'm joining a 24 hr gym and I expect that to help with my consistency. Excuses be gone! Plus, I've tied long strings to my stationary bike and now I have two cat trainers that make me workout... and I have a used total gym and I love it. Ideally I like to bike and run, but now I have the tools to get some sort of workout in when my schedule is overloaded.
In the past, I've raced in...

To keep on doing what I'm doing... When the weather is awful or my schedule is worse, get out a good book or magazine and go a few miles on the stationary bike. And when circumstances improve, get out there on a run or on a bike.
I'd like to do more strength training... and I'd really like to master kettlebells.
Gotta drink more water...
This year, I just want exercise to keep me from stressing out. I think I've figured out how to do it...
Running, running, running. I know of every 5k in the Ga/SC area...
Working out on my total gym.
Working out on the Stationary bike with my cats!
My new gym!
My name is Margaret. I''m 51, and am from Georgia. I am interested in running, theatre, books, cycling, cats, my local humane society, my total gym and... whatever's right around the corner.
I've become a addict for community improvement. I volunteer at my community theatre, and my local humane society.
I've joined a book club and although it's sedentary, I'm loving it.
I am a raging coffeeholic.
