Hi Terry - welcome to the team. I'm hoping some of the Cary Sparkers can get together in May to touch base. Check the thread about Ideas for a Meet Up. We've never done that before, but who knows, we might pull it off!

Hi Everyone! It is so encouraging to see so many women in Cary on SP! I'm Terry, new to SP and I'm in Cary off of Walnut. We moved here 1 1/2 yr ago. I'm so excited to build a new network of friends. I usually use my treadmill/elliptical but really enjoy walking during the day, especially with this lovely weather. I'm available 10-2 many days.

Hi REALESTATEMOM1, I live in the same area as you do! Weekday mornings are not good for me for exercising, as I work a Mon-Fri day job.


"Most people dislike vanity in others, whatever share they have of it themselves;

"but I give it fair quarter, wherever I meet with it, being persuaded that it is often productive of good to the possessor, and to others who are within his sphere of action:

"and therefore, in many cases, it would not be altogether absurd if a man were to thank God for his vanity among the other comforts of life." ~Benjamin Franklin

Hello, all!
I just joined SP and it looks like a great place!
I'm in Cary near the intersection of Harrison & Maynard.
Look forward to chatting with you all on here!

I just joined SP last week and I'm in Cary over in the Lochmere area and I'm starting to walk again around our neighborhood. I'm a slow walker I usually walk a mile in 30 mins.

I have a ways to go in my weight loss but I'm really motivated now.

Have a nice day everyone!

I'd like to join a team/challenge in Cary if one was going. It would be good to find other people in the area to exercise with and motivate each other.

MCNESBITT, thank you for the reply. Being new to this site, I am not real sure either, but will start searching. In the meantime, let's just keep posting and see who would like to join us.

UPDATE: I just emailed support and asked them to let us know how to change leaders and have someone local. I asked them to post to this topic or by return email. Let's see where that takes us!

I've been wondering that myself. I think more people are usually more active in the specialty teams. What we really need is a good team leader, but I'm not sure how to change the team leaders.

As a new member of Spark, I have to say this has been one of the best motivators I have seen and no cost other than my time. How cool is that?!

What can we do to increase our SparkTeam. Please share some thoughts... AND LETS GET THIS PARTY "ROCKIN' AND A ROLLIN"!
