No strange men at the park today

Sunday, October 14, 2012

Today was a beautiful Fall day in Pa so I headed off to the park with my walking buddy Harley!

(our flat coated retriever)

I had planned to do the river trail, its really nice it goes along the Neshaminy Creek then follows along the Delaware river. Well my plans changed, not because I had 2 strange men following me. No, I had other obstacles in the way today.

As I pulled into the park this is the sign I see!

Ok change of plans we will walk a different trail. While we are walking that trail we encounter another obstacle.

The Park Ranger.

There were a few hunters in the trees and they spotted a few deer so they didn't want us to go through, afraid we might get hit by a stray arrow.

So we turned off on to a different part of the trail, that's ok Harley seemed to be having fun

and we got to see some pretty sights

I didn't get to walk as far or as fast as I wanted to but that's ok tomorrow is another day.

So here is to a beautiful fall day in Pa

Hope everyone has a SPARKTACULAR DAY. I know I am ;)

    emoticon My favorite pic is the one over the river. Just gorgeous.

Your blog about the hunt reminds me of the time I came to a bed and breakfast in the Poconos by myself, got a little lost, and wandering into a deer hunt is some state forest. Glad you and Harley are ok.

Love that dog!

Love you more!!!

I better get moving! I want Kelly Ripa/Mrs Obama Arms

Friday, October 12, 2012

And here is how I am going to do it

kettlebells are great - the movements are dynamic so its sort of cardio and strenght training all rolled into one and you get more bang for you buck in a shorter time, - word of warning, start slowly and get the basics down pat before you move on. the 'swing' is the basic move that all others are built on so spend some time getting that right - good luck!

As my sister always says" Nothing to it but to do it"

Hope everyone has a sparktacular weekend, I'll be working on my Obama Arms LOL

Looking Forward to June 2013

Friday, September 14, 2012

I work for a company that provides services to adults and children with intellectual disabilities.

In June 2013 they are having a 5k run/walk it is called "Color Me Rad"and it benefits Special Olympics Philadelphia

Below is the link to the web site


If you're allergic to the metric system, corn starch, or unbridled joy, you'd probably be more comfortable watching Matlock than at the starting blocks of this color-filled 5k.

But if you're itching for a great time and not from a bad case of diaper rash, Color Me Rad Philadelphia is the run for you.

Race Details

Color Me Rad Philadelphia takes place at Fairmount Park in June and benefits Special Olympics Philadelphia. Click on the tab that says "Charity Partner" to find out more about what they're doing.

The Color Bombs start flying at 8 am with waves of runners getting plastered with paint every 5 minutes after. You'll end up looking like a kindergarten art class gone wrong... but the Art of Running will make you feel oh so right.

Don't forget to LIKE us on for race updates and to win sweet stuff: Camelbaks, running shoes, hoodies, free entries.

Requirement you must wear white!


Just like at Christmas and birthdays, 'tis better to give than receive... right? I know that's a hard one to swallow for 8 year olds, but in this case, it might be true. If you want to pummel your friends and family with color rather than be pummeled, sign up HERE to volunteer and join the COLOR BOMB SQUAD.

So quit lollygagging and join us for the Most Colorful 5K You'll Ever Run at Color Me Rad Philadelphia.


It looks like a blast I know I'm in. I already asked for information to be sent for next year.

Remeber it's for a good cause and a good way to help us all get in shape.

Have a sparktacular day

Melissa emoticon
