I haven't been with SP very long and I just found this team yesterday, but I can tell already the member interaction is great. You guys are awesome.

When you're interested in doing something, you do it only when it's convenient. When you're committed to something, you accept no excuses; only results.

Yeah, this is one of the most fun teams on SP. I've been on, and thoroughly enjoyed some of the more challenge-oriented teams, but I have to say I find it extremely wearying just trying to ignore the "G*D" aspect of a lot of the postings and comments, so I was thrilled when Boo started up this team.

Not that I joined immediately, but I pretty much knew I would, eventually.

One of Boo's most inspired (and inspiring) ideas was that whole Blaze of Glory thread ... I absolutely love how we celebrate successes in there rather than dwell on guilt and negative feelings. Well, that's true for the team on the whole, too!

So, welcome! Pipe up and join us on the various threads. Stay active and healthy.

Cheers,
Maya

Michaela, that first quote in your signature: I have it in a collage I am using as my computer wallpaper. I make these every once in awhile, but this one is particularly focused on encouraging me to run. Love it!

Glad you are pleasantly surprised.

I sought out teams when I really got involved last spring. I have had to look no further than this group.

This forum has offered me incredible support from like minded people.

I hope it works for you.

I'm glad you're here. I spent my early years in the Bible Belt South. So, I know something about the things you've had to deal with. I hope this team can be a nice escape for you. You'll meet some really great people here.

Feel free to jump right in on challenges or discussions or to start threads about anything that's on your mind. We want to cheer you on as you lose that remaining 40 lbs.

I had a hard time with too many 'blessings' done on some other teams... this one is potent, powerful- and purged of some of the more inane commentary. Yeah!
Hope you get involved- there are some great challenges here. Spark is an awesome tool, and the community is awesome.

I've been with SP since Feb 2008 and just found this team. How wonderful!

I wasn't raised to follow any particular religion. My father had no use for anything religious and taught me at an early age that it was one topic you did not discuss in public (politics being the other). My mother is spiritual but follows no specific denomination. I'm sort of in between. I think there's something bigger than myself out there, but I have no clue what. I think the Bible is fascinating from a historical literary POV but knowing that it was written and translated by men who had agendas, I have no use for it as a guide on how to live. I have had the fortune (or misfortune depending on who you ask) to have lived in the Bible Belt South my entire life. It is always refreshing to find other people who don't feel the need to quote Scripture at me or tell me to have a Blessed Day (although it's a sweet sentiment if I'm not feeling cynical which is rare).

My goals for 2010 are to lose the last 40 lbs and to be as fit and healthy as possible. I am VERY glad to be here!

A Few Rules of Running from Mark Remy:

1. You rarely regret the runs you do; you almost always regret the runs you skip.

2. Not everyone who looks fast really is, and not everyone who looks slow really is.

3. Running any given route in the rain makes you feel 50 percent more hard-core than covering the same route on a sunny day.

4. If you care even a little about being called a jogger versus a runner, you're a runner.
