  • Badwater wannabe

    6/14/2018 12:57:49 PM, by KATTURTLE

    I have a friend who crews and paces at Badwater 135 each July (135 mile race starts in Death Valley, ends on Mt Whitney - very tough race) I have always wanted toactually run this race, but realize that I have a long way to go to even complete the qualifiers. So in the true Spark spirit of small ste... Read more

  • Every step of the journey is the journey

    6/8/2018 1:31:16 AM, by KATTURTLE

    Or so says the keychain one of my running buddies gave me. I've been reflecting on this for a while. This year, owing to my job (91 hour work weeks) and assorted injuries, I haven't really run any distance. I hate that I have allowed my job to interfere with my fitness, I hate the regained weigh, th... Read more

  • 100 days- day 93, my 20 year plan

    6/5/2018 3:20:21 PM, by OLDEROWL

    Same as what I posted for day 92 but for my 20 year plan I add a few more clauses. After all, although I'm already 72 and retired, I envision a happy birthday at age 92 and beyond. To get there I will maintain my new normal, it is normal for me to meditate daily each morning and evening, it is no... Read more

  • Get ready ! National Running day is coming !

    6/4/2018 1:23:11 PM, by KATTURTLE

    Wednesday is National Running day. It's a great opportunity for anyone who had ever wanted to be a runner to start ! The whole idea of running can be so intimidating, imagining all those people who seem to be made of sinew and gristle stretching their quads while checking out with their basket of ka... Read more

  • Obtaining Authentic Power

    5/30/2018 12:50:26 PM, by OLDEROWL

    One of the books on personal growth that I read is “The Mind of the Soul” by Gary Zukav and Linda Francis. Chapter 13, Creating Authentic Power, describes a process which I am using for challenging feelings of anger, jealousy, despair, etcetera, and making choices that empower me. I plan to use i...

  • Choice

    5/25/2018 6:22:39 PM, by OLDEROWL

    We are beautiful souls whether you believe it or not. However, our personalities may or may not always reflect the beauty of our souls because in order for the soul to grow, our earthly bodies must experience opportunities to make or not make positive choices during our periods of earthy life. As... Read more

  • I Am Ready.

    5/23/2018 6:34:55 PM, by KANSASROSE67

    I have been a "Sparker" since February of 2010. More than eight years! That seems mind-boggling. In my first year on Spark, I got down to my goal range, though not to my actual goal. That took several more years, during which time I bounced up and down but never higher than 150 pounds. This ... Read more

  • Think twice & INSPIRE

    5/21/2018 2:57:58 PM, by SHELLLEY2

    Feeling very proud of myself for sticking to my plan and not indulging like I almost did this morning! The only thing that stopped me were the inspiring words of a friend!!!! It was coincidental that she even said what she had said when she said it, not knowing how I was feeling. Lesson learned toda... Read more

  • My New Life

    5/20/2018 11:23:58 PM, by KANSASROSE67

    So much has changed in our lives since my last blog post! All I have time to do is summarize, and promise to be a more faithful blogger in the future. We sold our house, closing on May 1, and scrambled to get everything in that big house and outbuildings moved to the farmhouse in time. Even t... Read more
