SparkPeople Members on the 'Today' Show!

By , SparkPeople Blogger
Every day at SparkPeople, we hear amazing stories of our members' successes, both in weight loss and in life! Today, we have some especially exciting news: Katie (SLIMKATIE) and Carly (CARLYOLEO41) were featured on the ''Today'' show this morning to talk about their amazing experience participating in the Ragnar Relay Race in Key West, Florida. Although they were not featured on the show, John (RUNNER12COM), Jennifer (JERSEYGIRLJEN), Linda (LINDAK1971), Lealah (JUSTLEALAH) and Allison (LYSSAYN) were also members of the team. This group of SparkPeople members ran the Ragnar Relay together as a part of the documentary From Fat to Finish Line, which ''will document the journey of 12 people who share the common bond of losing 100 pounds.'' Check out the ''Today'' show video clip below!  

Congratulations to Katie, Carly, John, Jennifer, Linda, Lealah and Allison! Keep Sparking!

Editor's Note: We apologize for the initial omission of some of the team members who were a part of this effort. We have properly recognized them above. Congratulations to all of you!
