I did lots of thinking on my 4.3km, 32 minute run tonight. What did I think about? Nothing in particular. If it had been a conversation, it would have been small talk. Why is it so awesome? When I started the Couch to 5k program, my only thought... Read more

I first signed up to Sparkpeople almost 10 years ago. Unfortunately, I didn't stick with it and I am now 50 lbs heavier. I've gotten married and had 2 children. I've deleted most of the old stuff on here to be able to start fresh. I want to... Read more
