Welcome, Cynthia! You're here, so you're automagically part of our team :)

They had women classified as "Clydesdale?" That's usually for men, and women are "Athenas." hmmm...But, who cares how slow you are! Most folks can't even fathom running 25K, congrats for going the distance.

Which marathon are you training for?

Hello. My name is Cynthia, and I am brand new to the SFR team.

I recently ran my very first 25K. When I searched for my official time, I found myself in the Clydesdale class. I thought that very offensive. Just because I am heavy does NOT mean that I am a horse.

I am an active part of a running group. It is true that I am the slowest in the group; it is also true that I am reaching goals that I never thought possible. I do not find it necessary to be the one to break records. I also think that running in the pack must be frustrating. I am completely happy in the back, enjoying myself.

I would love to be a part of this team. It would be great to get to know others who can relate.

Welcome, Melanie!

Great to hear you're doing so well with SP, and very happy you joined us. We may be penguins and turtles, but we meet that finish line with as much pride in our accomplishment as the rabbits :D. It's all about healthy living.

Have fun with your training and on that 5K - remember to tell us all about it!

Meanwhile, please feel free to jump in here any time, no question is silly (unless it's meant to be)!

Welcome to the team

You can not change yesterday - it's done.
You can only dream of tomorrow.
The only day you can change is today.
What are you going to do today to reach your goals of tomorrow?

It's supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard, everyone would do it. The hard is what makes it GREAT

Go little Turtle Go!

Hello. I've been faithfully doing SP since March 23, 2011 and have lost just over 17lbs. so far. I love to jog...which I haven't done in YEARS!!! So I am working my way up to it. I just joined a running club and am starting a beginner runner's class on May 31st. I have signed up to do my first 5k the first weekend in August. Plenty of time to prepare and train.

Looking forward to any tips/motivation this team can provide :)

Thanks!

Melanie
