Sparkers are getting together (JASR)

Saturday, March 22, 2014

Next weekend a group of Sparkers will be getting together for 'just a short run' - that IS the name of the event. This started with five of us going for a bike ride - the following year it was a run, and this year is the 5th year. I was unable to participate the last two years, but I am happy to say I am planning on being there this year.

From 5 people - there is now 137 people in the group. Amazing!!!

If you have spent a weekend with a group of Sparkers, your life will forever be changed. It is an incredible experience - and it has to be experienced. I can write for hours and it will be without meaning - you have to be present to be experience it.

Since joining Spark many have had accomplishments they never believed were possible. From running/walking the first 5K to completing and ironman distance. However, no matter what you have accomplished - the reason this is so successful is because there are two reasons for being there the camaraderie and completing a personal goal (what ever that may be).

If you are coming to Cranberry next weekend - I wish you safe travel - an if not - consider being there next year. People do come from Canada, West Coast of the US and everywhere in between.

    This has been on my radar for WAY too long a time! One of these years I'll be there...I'll never forget what a special time it was getting together with other Sparkers at the San Diego SparkConvention in 2009! It's also been such a joy pulling together local Spark Gatherings as well!
