I use my Spark blog as a place to journal my runs. I include the date and distance run in the title and place the specifics of the run and a summary of the run in the body of that particular blog entry. It gives me a quick reference to my runs AND I receive feedback from my Spark friends!
I track distance, time, average pace, splits, weather conditions, clothing worn and equipment used in the entry. I will also include how I felt, any new pains or discomforts I felt during the run for possible injuries that I need to watch. It gives me accountability AND gives motivation to others!

Blogs are a great way to get some of your thoughts together and share them with others. But when you want to journal thoughts and feelings you want to keep private using the journal in the Planner section is a great place to do that. You can mark that as private, and then still be able to use it for very personal or private writing and blogs for things you are willing to share with yoiur friends and others.
I keep Spark People up on my desk top, and usually when I get cravings is when I am bored or am running out of things to do .. (fast worker ) lol.. So instead of reaching for a bad snack... (plenty around here) I grab my water bottle and read inspirational blogs or spark pages.. It helps and has not failed me.. its only been a bout a week.. but These are the toughest days and I am making it
