Hey any Tri-City Area Sparkpeople want to get together to plan a bike ride up the midland rail trail from the tridge to Coleman or maybe even Clair?


If you think you can or you think you can't your probably right.

Welcome!!

I grew up in Midland but now live north in Coleman.

Small world. :)

Danielle & Sandy~I'd love to go snowshoeing. I need to see the calendar to see if there is a day/time that will work for me.

Hi, I am from Midland. I have been with sparks for about three weeks now and just getting around to introducing myself. I would like to lose my baby weight and get healthy. I am having a hard time with workouts do to a torn ligament in my ankle. I am almost up to par again and started walking at the mall. I NEED lots of support. I am weak when it comes to food. I hope some friends as well.

BAAMAAP I think snowshoeing sounds really fun I can't do any this month but...The Feb 17 one sounds great. I am going to see if my sister will come too. She is a teacher in Midland and trying to get strong now that all her breast cancer treatments and surgery's are done. I copied the posting below for those others who might be interested.

Sandy

2/17/09 Tuesday
4:00 - 5:30 pm

Free Admission
Ages: 15+, under 18
with an adult Adventures for Women Snowshoe Hike
If you can walk, you can snowshoe! Come explore the wonders of Michigan's winter on a short jaunt through the woods. This afternoon snowshoe adventure will provide basic instruction in technique and use of snowshoes while exploring the trails here at CNC. Along the way we'll look for signs of winter adaptations of plants and animals. No prior experience is necessary, and snowshoes will be provided if needed.

If you think you can or you think you can't your probably right.

Staci- Congrats on the new job! Smitty's is great...I loved it there and I'd still go...but a couple of the direct withdrawals for membership got bounced because I moved out of town and didn't have the $50 cancellation fee (which I had to pay because it was my first year there). So I'm working on paying that off. But all the people there were great, no matter your size, age, gender...all welcoming and more than willing to help.

Snow shoeing is FREE!!! They have classes and lend out the shoes for the classes. They don't lend them out though if you just show up and wanna go. And they're only about $100 a pair. I had so much fun, I really wan't sore at all. And I burned about 900 cals doing about 75 minutes or so of it. If you wanna go sometime we could? Get some sparkladies together? Who knows, just an idea. ;-)

The next few show shoe hikes are tonight from 4:00-5:30; Saturday the 21st from 1p to 3p I wanna do...it's snowshoeing the wetlands. There's many more. Check out their site chippewanaturecenter dot com and look at their program calendar. Sorry this is so long! I'm just in love with snow shoeing! hahaha

Baamaa,
Danielle

BAAMAA~I just got hired at Smitty's as a Personal trainer. Looking for new friends. :)
I used to go to the MCC (back when I was your age). I did the step aerobics class. :) Great job on the snow shoeing at the CNC. How much does it cost to do that? Do you need your own shoes?


Sandy~I use the rail trail all the time (come spring & summer). I normally use it here in the Coleman area but have done a bike ride from the Tridge to Sanford. That was fun.

I am from Bay City but work in Saginaw. I go to Seung-ni in Bay City if I work out in the morning, Saginaw if I work out at night and Midland or Bay City on the weekends. Anyone else go there? How about any of the rail trails? I love to both bike and roller blade. I did a 5k last year it was a joke how slow I went but darn it I finished.. Yeah Me. I think we should do a tri city area spring kick off challenge meet and greet kind of thing. What do you think ??

Hi there! I am from Bay City, MI. I have a few friends here on Spark People since I have joined, but I don't hear from them much due to busy schedules. I'd love to have a buddy that I can check in with frequently and maybe help keep each other on track!

I was born in Gaylord, grew up in Midland and then went to school in Ann Arbor. We now have a house in Troy (where we are staying over the holidays) but live in Cleveland while I am working on a postdoc. For those of you in Lansing who think it's boring there, try living in Cleveland for a while. You will LOVE Lansing then! I wish I could get back to MI.

Ahh...I'd take Detroit or GR over this any day of the week. Or a teeny hobunk town. This middle of the road stuff isn't quite for me. But I've lived here since I was 4...

Spent those first 4 years in Albright Shores/Beaverton. Yeehaw!

I do have to agree with you there! Interesting town, but for some reason, every time I go there I get lost. The down town streets are so confusing! lol! At least your not living in Detroit! lol!
