I am sorry, I have family coming in on June 2 staying one night and out the door from the beach that Sunday morning. Sorry, they are my cousins and Godbabies and I won't have enough time with them as it is.

Ack! I really need to get phone numbers, I don't have the net at home and can't keep up with it after hours. I passed the park today on my way to the doc and it does look lovely!

We did wind up going hiking at Hanging Rock and Courtney from the Winston-Salem Dance Fesitval was at the Walkertown Frogurt on Saturday for their grand opening so I took Emmaline there to meet her. For having a 3 month old, she looked fantastic!

Sorry - I was feeling better this weekend and managed to finally get "caught" up on everything else that I'd set aside for the last month. Going out for a walk tonight and planning to get back on track again.

I'm available (I think and hope) Saturday, June 2 or Sunday, June 3rd (afternoon). I'd love to walk if anyone wants to join me. Anyone else interested?

Hi everyone - sorry I've been MIA for so long. My husband and I went away the last weekend of April (into Winston but anyway...) and then I promptly got exhausted to the point of having to psyche my arm up to move before I would move it. So I started feeling better (last weekend) and then of course, got the stomach flu - which really isn't 24 hours, the gross part might be but I'm still recovering from the exhaustion and just feeling icky part...

I'm so glad you made plans for this weekend - I'll see how I feel on Sunday morning. I'd like to get out and start moving (if just a little bit again). I might even be able to have the car! (Thanks for the offer Mary. I might take you up on it at some point.)

I'm glad to see everyone is still around and doing well...

Would Shafner Park, off Silas Creek Pkwy be OK with everyone? We were there last time and I liked it. I will go anywhere though if there are other suggestions.

Lots going on in May for me, but, will try most any Sunday afternoon. I liked the park off Silas Creek parkway and it had lots of trees (shade) which might be good if the weather is in the 80's like today. emoticon

CRYSTALLYLLABY-I understand where you are coming from, we share one vehicle as well.

It might be easier for people to get together in smaller groups this month. I am sorry that I am not available more this month.

I do still go to Planet Fitness about three times or more a week around 8pm in K'ville. I have the black card so that means that I can bring a guest for free if anyone would like to meet up, just message me.

Are there any other times that everyone would like meet up?

Every time I think we are going to have two cars again...we have one. Which is fine. It's just going to make it interesting for the next year or so...

Please be patient with me as I try to figure out logistics throughout the end of the year for meetings/walks. If I can get to, plan, I will.

I won't be able to do the 21st or 28th. But can do it the 22nd. Or I can skip this round.

As for weeknight walks, any evening but Thursdays and Fridays are usually good for me.

I am so excited to see everyone that went Sunday!

April is going to be a busy month, so I am going to go ahead and throw out a couple of dates:

21st, 22nd, or the 28th.

Of course, open to location possibilities!

Have a great day everyone!

I woke up late for church this morning and as I was driving home, went "Uh, is it going to rain?"

Maybe we will beat it - bring an umbrella or whatever you need just in case. I will be there but understand if you want to NOT walk in the rain.

Hi guys, I was just looking at the weather and it seems there is a 60% chance of rain at 2pm and 65% chance at 3pm. Shall we just bring a jacket with a hood or umbrella and plan to walk rain or shine?

I think I can find it. Looking forward to trying to walk. Foot does well some days but never know when pain might set in, however, I can always drop out if it does start. Hope the rain won't mess up our plans! See ya there! Melrie

Okay here we go:

Sunday, March 18th at 2:00 p.m.

Sherwood Park (It's in on Silas Creek between Country Club Road and Yorkshire Road - if you are coming from 40, you will probably have to make a U-turn since it is on the left. If you are coming from Robinhood Road/University Parkway, you should be fine.)

It's a pretty little park with a paved trail. Maybe everything will be pretty and blooming.

Let me know if you need specific directions!

Here are some suggestions - let me know which ones you might enjoy:

1) Meet at the same place and actually walk around Old Salem
2) Meet behind Hamrick's/Peter's Creek and do the other part of the Greenway out toward downtown
3) Meet at the park on Silas Creek Parkway between Robinhood Road and Country Club Road (I don't know the real name -Sherwood maybe)
4) Meet at Bolton Park (set back behind AC Moore on Hanes Mall Blvd)

Or any other suggestions if you'd prefer somewhere else!

Sherri, you know you wouldn't want to miss our walk and I'm sure the girls will forgive you missing the beach (L0l!) I can make the 2:00 just fine if driving distance is within 30 minutes. Decided on the "where"? Looking forward to this! emoticon

Hi Team!

What time were you thinking on the 18th? I have to check with DH, we usually go to the early service, but he has NEXT that day (Church service or shall I say service to the Church) that day and I am unsure how long that lasts. It seems like this month is flying by with a vengence and it is only the 8th. I don't mind checking out new spaces and places either!

E has tutus and tumbles on Saturday mornings this month then it is lunch and naptime, usually in the afternoons I am catching up on grocerys/meal planning/ and house cleaning. (If only they would clean themselves)

Hi everyone,

Saturday's in March for me are all booked. Is anyone interested in a Sunday afternoon walk on the 18th? I'm up for place suggestions.

I was surprised that I was also sore from my knees down and I suppose walking for 60 minutes is more than biking for 30 to 40 minutes and uses different muscles. It didn't seem hard though and the time flew by. Way too much fun and now I won't wish to work out alone. emoticon

Let me tell you: Muscles are hurting in areas that I never would have thought from walking backwards (Outer upper arm, upper back, entire core - all that balancing which is definitely a weakness of mine.) Maybe I need to do it more?

I enjoyed the walk yesterday and can't wait for the next one. It is amazing that the three meets we have had in the past few months we are increasing in numbers though it is not the same ones each time. We have had towns near Winston Salem represented such as my home
Germanton and Rural Hall, Mocksville, Walkertown in addition to the Winston Salem folk so I challenge you Sparkers in King, Walnut Cove, Lewisville and other areas to come meet and have a good time with us. Meeting team leader CRYSTALLULLABY who can walk backwards for an hour and talk (not the whole hour since we talked too) is worth your coming out ! emoticon emoticon

I mapped out yesterday's walk if you want to track it more "accurately" I called it: WS Sparker Walk 2/25/2012. It was just over 3 miles. If you go to your fitness tracker and go to the bottom it will give you a button to map your route. If you search for Salem Lake (in the city field) it should pop up for you. If you have any problems, let me know.

Sorry I missed it today - had some things that I had to do. Looking forward to next month. Maybe it won't be quite as windy. Of course - we could have snow emoticon Who knows with this crazy winter weather emoticon Glad you all had a good time.

Today is the first day of the rest of my life!

It was wonderful to see everyone's smiling faces today! There were 5 of us and we walked down toward Salem Lake though it was breezy and a bit chilly. We will definitely do this again next month - let us know good dates and times for you (and other suggestions of where to walk).

I hope that you all have a wonderful time! I am here, downtown, at my desk, working.... emoticon I hate that I am missing this walk, it looks gorgeous outside, but so thankful for a little job security! Have a great walk and I can't wait to hear you all report back on Monday!

I will try to be at the tennis courts at 2PM. I have an every-other-week commitment to care for my aging parents, and this is my week. Prior to this week, I could easily make a 2 PM appt, but my mother broke her wrist this week and my days are extended. I will try my best to be there! I look forward to meeting y'all! Sherri

The high tomorrow is supposed to be 51 degrees. The 2:00 time will probably be the peak high of the day if that matters. I'm trying to decide if I should try this with the foot situation. The shoe seems to help, but, yesterday on the golf course I experienced a cramping in the toes and had to take the insert out of my golf shoes. I really, really would love to come and meet the new members so will see. emoticon

Okay - let's meet by the tennis courts - say around 3:00 p.m. (or 2:00 p.m.). Chime in with your thoughts and we'll figure out at time that works for everyone.

That sounds wonderful, I know that you will all enjoy Old Salem, I wish I could make it but I have prior commitments made for me (working) emoticon I will be thinking of you all and wishing I could be there. I feel like I have been under my desk for some time now. I want to see pictures!!

I am committed on the 3rd to an all day church activity visiting a friend's church for a ladies meeting. I think I can make it on the 25th. Love the idea of getting together!

I could walk the afternoon of the 25th and/or the morning or afternoon of the 3rd. Part of the greenway runs by Old Salem, and then out to Salem Lake. I haven't been on the section to the Lake since they drained the lake for dam repair, but I believe it is still available for exercisers. The section that runs by Old Salem is uphill from Salem Ave to 2nd St, but then gloriously downhill on the return loop. The Salem Lake section of the greenway is primarily flat. Parking is available at the Gateway Family Practice on Salem Ave (the building with the clock tower), or at the tennis courts.

I am really open to any place in the Winston area, so if one place suits better than another, I am flexible. I will just check in this week for a specific time and place. I am excited to meet some new people interested in health and happiness!

Old Salem sounds like a great idea. It's a beautiful area. My grandchildren go to school at Salem Baptist Christian School and I pick them up 3 days a week so the area is familiar to me.
Great idea! emoticon

Hi. Didn't hear back re: walk Sunday, but I think it is going to be super cold. I live in Reynolds HS area. If you are nearby and would like to get together for a walk (or bike ride - do you cycle?) sometime, let me know.

Aw, thanks!

It was really nasty and because it affected my computer at work, I was a bit nervous. Our IT guy said it was coming in on advertisements so really, there is no telling where the malware came from. I was really sad when I thought that I might have to give up SP.

I joined Planet Fitness in Kernersville, so if anyone is in the area and would like to get in a workout on a treadmill, eliptical, or weights, let me know, my membership covers a guest free daily.

Also, an update on Zumba, they changed my husband's work schedule for Saturdays due to the Christmas holiday and he will be working on Saturday, January 14th instead of the 7th. If you have all made plans to go next Saturday, by all means, GO!! Don't let me hold you up.

I hope everyone had a fun and relaxing holiday and look forward to kicking fat and taking names in the new year!

Holy Moly! I am back! Sorry everyone for being MIA for so long. My computer had some kind of malware virus that was really nasty and I had to stay off of the internet for a while! Talk about withdrawls!

Hope everyone is doing well, Karnik, I really wish I could commit, Ardmore is a nice area to run in as well but my schedule is too hectic. If you don't find anyone here, I know that the YMCA on Robinhood has a running club and Fleet Feet has a running club for beginners as well. Super nice people too! Good luck! There is also another great resource for free or discounted groups called www.meetup.com, I have no personal use of the site except that I peek in from time to time to see what is going on.

Would anyone be interested in being/ having a beginner running buddy? I live in Ardmore and am starting C25K. I have done it before and always do better with a buddy. If you are interested, just reply.

Don't worry - I'm right there with you on bed time. Actually I'd love to go to bed earlier than 9:00 p.m. but stuff always has to get done. (My husband and I are the "oldest" 29 year olds we know - if we are out of the house past 7 p.m. we get cranky. But we have no intention of changing that so...)

I'm also with you on plans for the rest of the month - we are booked through the New Year on the weekend. However, I'm good after January 2. We could use a good jump start for the New Year.

Enjoy the warmer weather everyone!!
