SparkPeople Renton Sparkers Team Messageboard If you live, work, or just are familiar with Renton, here's the group for you! SparkPeople Renton Sparkers Team Messageboard What did you do today? Today, the family and I went on a long hike. We were by a nice big running creek so we all got wet, but had a ball! Mon, 15 Jul 2013 01:20:03 EST hi Just wondering if I am the only active person on this group? I hope not. Hope everyone is having a great weekend! <BR> Sun, 14 Jul 2013 01:12:04 EST How was your day? What did you do today? Today, I took DD and DS on a hike to see a waterfall. Twin Falls is a beautiful hike (although I had forgotten how hilly it is). We hiked to the lower waterfalls and it is so pretty! <BR> <BR> So, what did everyone do today? Sun, 7 Jul 2013 23:05:36 EST How is your day today? So far my day has been spent at the dentist with my DD. 2 years ago, she fell and broke her front 2 teeth and yesterday some of the bonding agent fell off (this also happened a year ago in May) so she had to go in and get it repaired and we decided that while we were there, it would be good to do some other dental work that she needed to have we spent just about 45 minutes of her being worked on. <BR> <BR> What have you done today? Fri, 5 Jul 2013 18:24:03 EST Happy 4th of July! Hello all! Just wanted to wish everyone a happy and safe 4th! Enjoy your day! <BR> Thu, 4 Jul 2013 20:13:43 EST Is anyone here?

Hi there, I just joined Renton Sparkers. I moved here from Texas. I'm sure if I completely follow what Spark says to do and all the great team members out there, I will get to where I want to be. Hurray Renton Sparkers!! Thu, 15 Apr 2010 01:56:12 EST Brand New to SP I just joined SP today, and already I've joined about 8 teams. I live in Fairwood and also go to Bally's on 116th 5-6 times a week. I'm currently doing the Monday night aqua aerobics class and the Tues/Thurs night PowerFlex class (which kicks my butt!) Wed, 27 May 2009 17:39:30 EST Nature Trail suggestions I'm trying to find a good trail to walk on in the area. Do you know any? I've lived in Renton for 6 years now but never walk any trails here. I don't know why I spend the gas to go to other cities and walk nature trails when there has to be perfectly good spots around here. I just need the help finding them. Thu, 7 May 2009 10:48:25 EST Renton Trivia Does anyone know the name of the dance club that was located on the west side of Rainier Ave (close to the railroad overpass) in the late 1970's? <BR> <BR> The first one to guess correctly will receive a pretty decent spark goodie. <BR> <BR> <em>211</em> Fri, 13 Mar 2009 23:30:36 EST Renton Landing L.A. Fitness Does anyone have a membership here? I am thinking of joining. It's like 6 blocks from my house. <BR> I am wanting to know if you like it, and if you don't mind me asking, how much do you pay? <BR> Pros & cons? <BR> Suggestions? <BR> Thank you!! Mon, 26 Jan 2009 12:36:22 EST Gym memberships... I did not make a new years resolution as some of you may have. But it's been almost a year since I wanted to "loose the extra pounds" and I am so freaking lazy (and busy) I haven't made a real commitment to it. I think it is time to kick my butt! <BR> I got an ad for the LA fitness @ the Landing thru Valpak. I used to be a member at the 24 Hour Fitness in the Highlands and I paid $45 a month w/a 1 year contract. I didn't like going there. The ad states you pay: $25 initiation fee along w/1st... Mon, 5 Jan 2009 18:36:15 EST Uh oh! The holidays! Whether you celebrate Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanza, all or the above, or nothing at all, the holidays can be hard to keep weight off. <BR> <BR> Pretty much everyone has a bunch of food around, and my own mom makes enough fudge for a large city every year. <BR> <BR> What do you do to keep the calories down? Mon, 15 Dec 2008 17:05:31 EST How do you fit exercise in? With the holidays going on, and everything in the world being so hectic, how do you fit your exercising in? Mon, 1 Dec 2008 01:21:55 EST How do you feel when you exercise? For some, it's invigorating, it's a stress buster, or it's just exercise. <BR> <BR> What does exercising do for you, and how does it make you feel? Tue, 18 Nov 2008 15:26:56 EST When everything's more expensive, how do you deal? The economy is a bit out there lately, what are some ways that you like to save money? Tue, 11 Nov 2008 23:44:09 EST Getting closer to winter. What do you do? If it's too cold out to go walking or something, what do you like to do? Tue, 16 Sep 2008 06:08:38 EST Daily Success Just because you're not at your goal weight yet doesn't mean you haven't had success yet. <BR> <BR> What did you do to succeed today? Tue, 12 Aug 2008 14:23:03 EST Whew! Sure is hot out! Have a fave swim spot? Western Washington, as we all know, does have it fair share of rain, and then some. <BR> <BR> But what about the days that it's boiling hot out, and your thermometer just exploded? <BR> <BR> Do you have any favorite places to cool down? <BR> <BR> I like Coulon Beach, the very back of Flaming Geyser, and Lake Sammamish. Sat, 9 Aug 2008 18:11:33 EST Back on Track! Hey everybody! <BR> <BR> Activity in this group has been a bit M.I.A., and I'm sorry about that. But does anyone have any suggestions for how I can make this group better and more active? <BR> <BR> Feel free to speak your mind! Fri, 6 Jun 2008 17:01:49 EST Challenges! What challenges are you currently involved in? Or maybe you have a suggestion for one to start? Feel free to put it here! Wed, 16 Apr 2008 18:09:05 EST Things to do around Renton What are 5 of your favorite things to do in the Renton area? <BR> <BR> I like to: <BR> 1. Walk from end to end at Coulon Beach <BR> 2. Walk around Liberty Park <BR> 3. Go swimming at the river along Jones Rd <BR> 4. Watch the sunset at the rock formation in the middle of Coulon <BR> 5.
