Making a SparkFriend...
Monday, April 29, 2013
As sat drinking my coffee this morning and catching up on the local news, I had the opportunity to reflect on my opportunity to meet a fellow Spark People member yesterday. As often happens in my world, the event was quite random and by total accident.
I was working out at the Y in a nearby town yesterday when I finished my strength training and decided to head for the pool. While in the locker room changing into my suit, I noticed a collection of women headed out toward the pool with a certain level of enthusiasm. I decided to follow them down the the small pool and, after assessing the situation, I assumed (correctly) that they were part of a water aerobics class. I asked the instructor (a lovely woman named Kendra) if I could join them and was welcomed with enthusiasm.
After a vigorous workout, I took a few minutes to explain my situation and thank Kendra for he warm welcome to the class. In our conversation I learned that she was also a member of Spark People. We immediately clicked and decided to "friend" each other. It was the first time I had met a fellow SP member in person and was a great experience!
