Nice idea! I have to ask if you know about the many teams on SparkPeople that members have created for the areas in which they live? That's actually how the Illinois team started - I wanted to talk to other members from this state and thus started this team. I searched and found that there are 39 teams within the state of Illinois! You may want to check into the following one: "Illinois: St. Louis Metro East Area" - I think that's where you said you were located?!! www.sparkpeople.com/myspark/groups_i nd ividual.asp?gid=1334 Good luck with meeting up with fellow sparkers! I did that myself this past spring - I ran in a 5K and met up with another member from the McHenry County team! It was so nice to make that connection!
Hello all, I was thinking we could use this post to pair up or group up locally and either exercise or meet up once in a while to swap recipes or something. I have been looking for others since I joined in June and have finally found the IL Sparkers so I don't want to pass up on an opportunity to make some friends.
I exercise at East Belleville YMCA a couple times a week with my son in tow after dropping my daughter off at preschool. Sometimes I stay at home and do a video while he watches toons. So, a buddy would be great company. My son is 3.5 and daughter is almost 5.
I love cooking, dancing, games, gardening, crafts with the kids and entertaining.
