Hi! SheSmith,

I just read your response and the main thing is that you are interested in being in a walking group.
Commitment to walking with a group is one perspective. But, I think that people (including myself) may get turned off a little bit when exercise is viewed as a big commitment to an unknown group of people. The more proactive perspective is that we have decided to commit to our own health and happiness by walking with a group of people who have the same commitment to their health. "I am taking responsibility for my own health and if I have fun doing it and if I feel better day by day and if my health improves and if I start looking cuter and cuter, if this is a result of the commitment that I make to myself ...then, so be it!"
Fellow Sparkers it is so comfortable to "want to" but, it is so rewarding "to do". Remember, it is impossible to commit to a group like this without committing to yourself first. It is advisable to start slow and it's up to each individual how much they are willing to devote to themselves. A walking group is for safety, encouragement and help with meeting personal health goals. I hope that someone else writes something. Oh! and SheSmith, I think your interest is Great!

I'm excited to see the interest in better developing our team. In the past, some of us have gotten together at area greenways to walk. As the weather is improving, I hope we are able to do that more often. The idea of a morning group and an evening group sounds good. I personally cannot commit to something as regular as daily - or even every other day, but would love to join a group occasionally.

Hello Thomas and Fellow Winston-Salem Sparkers,

I have decided to commit to helping myself by receiving the help of my team. I am also, recommending this team to a friend. I am looking forward to seeing how this team develops it's own personality as a team. I really want someone to walk 3-4 miles with/hr. on a consistent basis. Though we all live in Winston-Salem we all may not live in the same area of the city. Thomas, number one, thanks for volunteering to be the leader. Next, have you thought about creating walking groups in four areas of the city? With 2 groups per. area. One for walking in the early mornings and one for walking in the evenings after 5pm?

Thanks!

I just recently joined this site too. I'm game for weekly discussions and more. I ran up some stairs at Wake Forest tonight! I use to have to stop half way up and rest.

Hi Thomas and Sharon, happy to have you both on board. Some of us who have been here awhile welcome you to the team and hope everyone will free to post on our home team board. We could use more people to "huddle" each day and blogging helps us get to know one another. Looking forward to interacting with you and all team members. emoticon

Hello Thomas! My name is Shannon. I think it is wonderful that someone decided to step up and become a leader. I am new to this site, and I hope others in W-S decide to get more involved with this site and fb. I would be happy to participate in a weekly discussion.

Hello All!!

My name is Thomas, and I have decided to help lead this group! I see that there is little interaction on this group and wondered why??

Do you guys still get on here and message? I'd like to start having weekly discussions and maybe have a FB page.
