Kiawah, SC is the destination for the 81st and possibly final marathon Margaret Hagerty plans to run.

At 64, her doctor told her to quit smoking and get out and move it.
The first day, she only ran the length of two houses.
At 66, she ran her first marathon in Greensboro, NC. She set a state record for her age group.
In 2005, she made the Guinness Book of World Records for being the oldest person to complete a marathon on each of the seven continents, at age 81 years, 101 days.
In 2008, she became the oldest person to run the Great Wall of China (in a 10K event, see link below).

NOW, what’s your excuse? emoticon

Today's Goal -- Make A Happy SPAT!!

Tuesday, September 02, 2014

emoticon Sad SPAT!


emoticon Happy SPAT!!!


Did you know that you don't 'Have To' make 10,000 steps to get your SPAT to fully Light Up? If you are only able to do 1,000 or 5,000 Steps a day, you can program your SPAT for that Goal. Then - after a few Days or Weeks - increase your Goal by 500 or 1,000 Steps.

emoticon Before you know it, you'll be making more steps than you ever thought Possible! !

Footprints -- A New Twist On An Old Story

Wednesday, July 30, 2014



One night I had a dream . . .

I dreamed I was walking along the beach with the Lord.

Across the sky flashed scenes from my life!

For each scene, I noticed two sets of footprints in the sand;

one belonged to me, and the other to the Lord.



When the last scene of my life flashed before me, I looked back.

I noticed that at some times along the path there was only one set

of footprints. At other times, there was one set of footprints or long

gouges and irregular lines in the sand.

I also noticed that this happened at the very lowest and saddest

times in my life.



This bothered me, and I questioned the Lord . . .



"Lord, you said that once I decided to follow you,

you would walk with me all the way. I have noticed

that during my most troubled times, you were not with me".



The Lord replied, "My precious, precious child, I love you and would

never, ever leave you during your times of trial and suffering".



"When you saw only one set of footprints, it was then that I carried you. And that long groove in the sand is when I dragged you, kicking and screaming, like a spoiled brat".

    emoticon I love the first statement. So true. I used Curves a while back & loved it then. Now it closed out in our town. But I now have other ways to use those muscles. We don't want to lose them!

Why Fire Trucks Are Red - from My E-Mail

Saturday, May 03, 2014



Because they have Eight Wheels, and Four People on them, and Four people plus Eight is Twelve, and there are 12 inches in a Foot, and One Foot is a Ruler, and Queen Elizabeth was a Ruler and Queen Elizabeth was also a Ship, and the Ship sailed the Seas, and in the Seas are Fish, and Fish have Fins, and the Finns fought the Russians and the Russians are 'Red' and that is why Fire Trucks are Red.



At least that is what the e-mail that I got says, LOL!!
