Hi Sparkbuddies. I'm newly retired and, after decades at a desk job, I'm finally getting myself into shape. Kids grown and married. Time for me. I want this to be the best me I can be -- physically, emotionally, intellectually and spiritually. I've already lost more than 20 pounds, but I still have a long way to go. You might say I'm more than halfway there, but the first 10 pounds were easy. Now it's a real grind. I'm relatively new to Florida, so I could use some workout buddies with similar objectives. Interested in joining forces??

    We're in Jensen; is that close to you? I'm in my 50's, just got a brand new first granddaughter, completed Couch to 5K and now working on Freeway to 10K, a little more slowly than I did C25K.

    Hi Scotty51
    Where are you in Florida. I am in Loxahatchee and looking for someone close to workout with or just motivate each other. Looking at your page, looks like we have common interests and lifestyles, except you have the advantage on me...retired and a grandbaby.
