Honestly, I am not ready for it yet. I walked a good part of the strollway the other day and made it under the overpass and wound up having to take the "fake stretch" break!

**Check out the local events forum, Fleet Feet has a beginner to advanced runner's program**

I've been on sparkpeople for awhile, but I'm just now really getting serious about it. It has taken me gaining 10 lbs in a month (after already being overweight) to realize I need to WAKE UP! I bought THE SPARK! and have been reading it. I can see how the importance of having a good support group is...soooo this is me reaching out saying "Hi" hoping to make connections with others :o)
