As we move info Fall, I am already looking at upcoming activities where we can get Sparkers out doing fun things throughout San Antonio. This weekend, I took part in a Cityscape Adventure. What is that you ask?? Think of this as a mini Amazing Race that took place along the Riverwalk.
Basically, here is the gist - you sign up as a team of two individuals and participate in completing challenges along the Riverwalk. This may have you taking pictures of local places, meeting new people and asking them to participate and just all around fun. You can read about my adventure by going to my blog: www.sparkpeople.com/mypage_public_journal_
Just some background on registering...this particular race cost $100 for a team of two unless you had a Groupon, which made it $45. When we arrived at the event, we were informed that there would be another Cityscape Adventure in March of next year. After the event, I spent some time with the organizer talking about our SparkTeam and he offered up the following:
For two to three weeks (still working out the final details on the open window), Cityscape will open up registration to us at a special price of $40. This is not a per person charge but for a team of 2!
This is a fantastic rate and after meeting all the people participating and having a great time, I thought this would be a perfect SparkTeam event. Mind you, this is not about running throughout the city and getting done as quickly as possible - although we did - this is about having fun and getting out there.
My challenge to the team is:
1. Sign up!! This is in March (March 11th to be exact) and no one could have that date blocked already, can they?
2. I would love to see 10 San Antonio SparkTeams sign up. That is 20 people total. Your partner does not have to be a Sparker. Just sign yourself up and come out with your spouse, friend, child (as long as they are over 13 years old I believe - but will verify).
3. This is an all age, all shapes welcome event. Do not think about if you can be fast enough or smart enough to come out. Just come out.
If we get enough people to sign up, I will even plan our own team prizes - won't that be fun!!

Remember that this road we are on is a journey - not a race. No one ever achieved a healthy body and mind over night.
