Meeting Spark People

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

I'm going to meet some fellow Sparkpeople for the first time! I'm so excited! (and a little nervous)
I have been on Sparkpeople for so long and never once thought about looking for a local Spark Team. I don't know why. It just never dawned on me. I had read about Spark Rallies that they had in other cities in the past and I was searching for information about future ones. I just thought it would be neat to go and meet a few other people. I ended up on the Spark America page, which I had only gone to a couple of times in the past and I was looking at the comparison of our city vs. others in exercise minutes when I read a little paragraph about finding your own local group by simply searching for your city in Spark Teams!

DOH! emoticon

Really! That simple, huh? After I had been searching for these get togethers on and off for the last few weeks. I almost called myself a few choice names (but caught myself in time)!

So, I searched. Found our team and they are already meeting this Friday!


I found so many great things posted in the forum for the local team! If you haven't searched Sparkteams for your city, go do it! There could be some really helpful stuff in there!

    I'm so glad you found us! I've always been a huge advocate for spark meet ups and have said (to some folks dismay) that if your local team doesn't hold them at least once a year they might need to look at getting new leadership (I know, I'm trouble) emoticon

    We will be having at least 4 dinner meet ups as well as a picnic in the park in April at Siclovia where we will all walk, bike, talk and visit during this huge free family event. We had a half sparkathon 13.1 walk in January that we had trained for all throughout 2012. We've made good friends and built a great support system...plus....if you are on facebook look up the San Antonio Spark Team page and "like" us for links to great articles, information, and pictures of our various get togethers!

    Looking forward to meeting you!
