emoticon PrairieMimi! Yaa another midwestern person. I am in Chicago and it seems like a lot of people are from anywhere but the midwest. I am inspired by your post. You have a very positive attitude. I know you will find encouragement and support here from the members.
Are you actually hiking the Appalachians or doing a virtual trek? If actual what do you mean by in segments? How long have you been training for the 5K? Will you actually be able to run it with Arthritis? Oh boy wish I could do that. Only up to walking 550 steps a day as yet (mobility challenged) Kacey

Hi, I am PrairieMimi from the Land of Oz. New to team. Joined Sparkpeople in early March. Overall, in good condition at 56. Retired last year after 25 years in state government. Have arthritis in my spine. Had spinal fusion about 6 years, ago. My health has improved since retiring. I am no longer sitting at a desk for hours at a time, or driving across the state for meetings 2-3 times a month. I enjoy water exercises, hiking, gardening and my numerous pets. Grandchildren are a joy, but they live across the country. I am training for a 5K and plan on hiking the Appalachian trail in segments. Even though I do have some chronic pain issues ... I use meditation and my animals as a way to stay focused and energized. My great-grandmother set a fabulous example for me ... she had RA and stayed active until she died at 100 years old. So, I am glad to have found this team and look forward to reading what everyone else is doing to stay healthy.

"We are shaped by our thoughts; we become what we think. When the mind is pure, joy follows, like a shadow that never leaves." ~ Buddha
