Spark Teams
Wednesday, January 12, 2011      10 comments

One of the things I like about Sparkpeople are all the teams. I am currently on 17. It's almost more than I can really keep up with. Some of them aren't very active. And some have so many members that I hardly know anyone. But there are a few... Read more
