emoticon Karen!

So glad you found and joined the Southern Oregon Team! So far it's been Erin, Michele and myself in Medford and Cheryl in Grants Pass. We were meeting twice weekly as we were training for the Color Run which we DID May 17. Rhonda, our Team Leader and her husband drove from KF and walked it with us! It was my 1st 5K EVER and boy did I enjoy it! We were all pooped but it was an experience I shall cherish always. Can't wait to do it again!!!

Erin is out of town on vacation but is due back June 5. Maybe we can drum up a new team walk schedule and really get to know one another. Sound like fun? Yep, me too!!! Both Erin and Michele work ... I'm retired so can pretty much go anytime (once I get rid of my weeds, that is ... they've been keeping me busy, busy, busy)

Have a grand day!

Steph

Hi my name is Karen and I live in Medford. I just started SP, so I'm new to all of this. I've been a yo-yo dieter for years. Its time to get serious! I know I need a lot of support especially when I hit those low points. This group seems like a great place for that! I look forward to getting to know all of you better! emoticon

Welcome Michael & Kelly!!! It is nice to have a few more Klamath Falls folks here :).
Michael, I think Steph may be misleading you as far as my exercise level. I am working up to doing the 5K color run with the Medford/Grants Pass ladies, but I most likely will be walking. :D. It would be great to get a group of us meeting every week like the Medford/Grants Pass group is, and then we can challenge them ;). Kelly, I am building up my exercise, one day at a time. I am very sure you could keep up with me. We have another Klamath Falls member (Ken) who I believe would be able to keep up with Michael. :)

Let me know you two if you would like to meet up to get a group going.

Kelly,
We've all been where you are, so don't feel bad. Heck, there are still days that I AM where you are. Slow and steady....baby steps are still steps.... every little bit is better than nothing. We hope to get the chance to meet you. We are always willing to go at any pace required to be a team -- even at your pace whatever that would be. As a long-leg I know how to jog in baby steps to slow my pace down for the grand kids so nothing is impossible 8)

Welcome to our team and enjoy the blessing of your journey!
Erin

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hello everyone- I live in Klamath Falls but I am fairly new. So I wouldn't be a good exercise partner just yet unless you are willing to go really slow and not set any distance records. I am trying to master 10 mins of daily exercise (gazelle glider). I will be there eventually. :) However I am a great friend emoticon and would love to connect and get to know others working towards the same goal.

emoticon Michael! Our Medford/Grants Pass team members all meet up on Tuesday & Thursday every week ... Tuesday in Grants Pass, Thursday in Medford. It's great fun, camaraderie and exercise. We're 'training' for the Color Run here in Medford on May 17. Interested? Hope so!!!

I'm sure Rhonda, our Team Leader who also lives in Klamath Falls, will be contacting you VERY soon. Her handle is REBBUL67 in case you want to contact her first. emoticon

emoticon on the weight loss! AND running!!! I'm definitely NOT a runner ... yet. Who knows ... if I can get my legs in good enough shape to jog, I should be able to get them in shape to run, right? Oh that teeny tiny light at the end of my tunnel!!!

Have a wonderful day!

Steph

I live in Klamath Falls, my name is Michael. I have been on SP for nearly 5 years but have recently started up again. Are there any groups that meet in my town for running or anything? I run 12+ miles a week. I expect that to go up now since I just started running 5 miles at a time. I started losing weight in mid january and so far lost 30 pounds. Tomorrow is my next weigh in so hopefully that number will go up.

Welcome to our team Michele. We post where we will meet on the team forum. Generally it is under:

FORUM: General Team Discussion Forum
TOPIC: Tuesday/ Thursday Walkers-Grants Pass & Medford

I will send you a personal note for my contact information in case something comes up.
We meet between 3:30 and 4:30 (depending on the location and the people) and walk for about 60-90 minutes -- depending on schedules. We are very flexible and accommodating.

Slow and steady wins the race!

Hi! I'm Michele and I live in Medford. I've been on SP for quite awhile and love the community support. Erin sent me a message inviting me to this team and I'm glad she did! I love walking and would love to join you on Thursdays when I can (I work on Tuesdays). How do I know where you are meeting? Looking forward to getting to know you all better~seems like a fun group :)

Welcome ROUGECHIP, I am in Klamath Falls, but I have been to Gold Beach MANY times with work. I work for MENTOR Oregon and went there to assist when Gold Beach and Brookings joined our team. Very beautiful country! LMAO about running into us, glad you aren't intending to take us out with your car ;). Tell us a little bit about yourself. Do you ever make it to the Medford/Grants Pass/Klamath Falls areas? We a large group with a small amount of respondents....we are working on that and hope you will enjoy the SOS team (Southern Oregon Sparks). Erin will have to tell you our catch phrase :)

Welcome to our team ROUGECHIP.

I don't cycle -- mostly walk -- but my husband and I do make it to the coast every rare once in awhile. Maybe when we head over that way some time we can get together and visit with you and yours. I don't think we've ever actually stopped into Gold Beach for very long cuz we don't know much about that area. Maybe you could recommend a place or two where we could get a decent meal. Isn't WHALE's HEAD close to your location?

Hope you find members in your area to hook up with.

Have a wonderful day,
Erin

Well hello Southern Oregon Sparksters! I've been on and off Spark People for a couple years now and just found this group. I'm in Gold Beach. My wife and I ride bikes and would love to run into some of you - maybe not REALLY run into you, you know like CRASH! - at some cycling event sometime.

I am inKlamath Falls.

I appreciate the invite, but, the color run falls on my birthday and I am going to be out of town.

I am definitely ok with meeting up once in a while for fitness related group activities. :)

I was up on top of Mt Mount McLoughlin a few days ago. There is still lots of snow near the top, but the approach is mostly clear and the trail is visible. I don't know when the Lake Of The Woods opens officially, but, it is definitely accessible now, both from the PCT and the parking lot.

Cheryl-
I would totally love to meet up with you guys there! I am excited about our emoticon I think that you all are in much better shape than I am, but I am fine with pushing myself emoticon Lake of the Woods should be ok for snow, I would think. I wish I was closer too. Trying to get a few people in town to join us... we will see :)

I wish I lived closer too....maybe I will just move to the Medford area :D

Hi I'm Rhonda aka Red Bull to some of my team members here emoticon I'm in Klamath Falls. I have been going strong with my goals since January as I plan to lose 100#. I initially joined this team because I LOVE Southern Oregon and have been here my whole life. When I saw it was inactive I asked to be a leader and started talking to a few people. Now we have eight of us talking (Steph, Cheryl, Erin, Laura, Anne, Jaynee, Frum_Scratch, Christy). This team is reviving more and more each day, and I am happy because we have a great group!
