I joined Sparkpeople in 2006 with the objective of losing weight and gaining a circle of friends that I could relate to. Almost 5 years later, I have something I could have never expected.
You see, in March of 2009, another Calgarian joined my home-based group - Life Inspired Calgarians. PEHASS2, or Paul as he's called in the real world, was one of the very few males in our group. He was also one of the very few runners. We became friends gradually online and I told him that he should join a running group. Eventually, this lead to an offline friendship. And then more.
Now, just over two years from when we first "met" we're moving in a whole new direction. For the next 7 or 8 months, my journey on Spark will not be including weight loss but, rather, health and fitness maintenance. The scale is already moving in the opposite direction. I'm okay with it tho'. It's all for the sake of a new Life Inspired Calgarian/Rookie Runner.
