I am also not new to spark and not really new to running but getting back into it after a four year hiatus due to a rugby injury! I am excited about running my first races this spring and fall and glad to have joined this team!

It is my believe and my experience that focusing on the running makes the eating fall into place. Especially once I get to a place where the running feels like an essential part of my life. (Not always a delightful part... but essential.)
Are you a stats nerd? (I am.) If so and you have a cell phone, check out RunKeeper. You can get a free version at runkeeper.com. If you're interested, please add me as a street team member and we can cheer each other on.
RunKeeper also has fitness classes. I plan to take the "Running for Weight Loss" class after I finish my 10K training in six weeks. Maybe see you there?

I have used spark off and on in the past when I needed some extra motivation. This will be the first time using it as a runner. I have a good 25 pounds to take off. I have been running for a few months now. I love it! I have done 2 5ks that were awsome!. I have not lost any weight yet because my eating is all over the place. I am ready to take control and get the weight off with my new love of running. Looking forward to all the good advice I can get from this team!
