Man, I've been a SparkPeople Member on and off for a couple of years. I join hoping that I will find a local network and actually MEET another SparkPerson or two live & in person - I'm looking for support in the form of workout buddies/friends. I think SparkPeople has some great tools but is really lacking in person-to-person contact.
I've been a Member of my local SparkGroup, like, local as in.... my actual city has a Group and on and off for a couple of years I've been looking for a walking partner and have had exactly ZERO takers. I'm floored. I don't get it. Working out, being active is WAY MORE FUN when you do it with somebody.
So, now, I've decided to be a MeetUp.com Event Host for a local MeetUp.com Group. I've posted this in my local SparkTeam's page... we'll see if anybody joins me for some local hikes & some wilderness hikes. I seriously freaking doubt anybody from SparkPeople will join me... but... hey.... you never know.
