Thanks for sharing that. I haven't done a 10 k in 20 years, but I think I may train for the fall.

You were right Debbie--I just read the blog about walking until her 3 yr old dog was too pooped to go any farther. It was fun but inspiring too.

Over this past year on SP, I have met some incredible sparkers. I'd like to use this thread to share some of their stories in hopes that it will inspire us. I'm sure you've met some, or will meet some, too. Feel free to post about them here so we can visit their pages and boost our motivation!

The first one is MTER67. She is a mom of 4 young children and her husband was in Afganistan for most of 2008. They are stationed in Okinawa (Marines). Even with all of her responsibilities, and living in a foreign country, she still finds time for herself. She is training for a full marathon. She writes the most entertaining, funny, yet useful blogs about her daily life and her LONG runs through the streets of Okinawa. She's thin, and she hasn't lost a ton of weight, but she inspires me because she makes time for herself. She has a million opportunities for excuses, but she puts them aside (for the most part...she's not perfect, and she'll be the first to admit that) and does what she loves. Take a peek at her page and read a few of her blogs. You won't be disappointed.
