We all had a great time last night ... I wish more of you could have joined us! The group that was there ... Joe and his wife Shirley, Joy, Becky and her sister, Jackie, The two Sues (europa and susanmikeska)and me. We had a nice visit, and hope to do it again sometime. One thing we talked about was a Saturday morning walk on Presque Isle at 8am. We'll be waiting for a little better weather before we make it an every week event ... hopefully we'll be able to start planning for every saturday by the end of April. In the meantime if we get a nice saturday and you are interested in walking just let me know.

We had fun looking at some beautiful pictures Becky took while she was in Australia ... It looks like she will have some permanent ties to the country in the near future ... Congratulations Becky!!!

I will try to make it on Tuesday. Are there any Erie Sparkers who are runners or would like to be? I am returning to running after an injury that kept me from running for about 2 months. This past week I did a 2 minute run/ 3 minute walk program. I did run at a 10-12 minute pace before I was hurt and am looking for someone to run with on Saturday mornings after 10 at PI, Scott park, asbury or pleasant ridge park. I am a member of the Erie runners club in case anyone would like some information about local races.

emoticon We are planning an ErieSparkers supper at Hoss's (3302 West 26 Street) on Tuesday March 24 at 6pm. It will be nice to get together and talk about walking groups for the spring and summer and other activities that we might be able to get together for.

emoticon It has been brought to my attention on Saturday, June 6, Highmark will be hosting a 5K " Walk for a Healthy Community." and a 1 mile fun walk. One of our team mates ... Sandra (slip561) has asked if we would get a "SparkPeople" team together to walk that day ... she would appreciate it if we would walk to support the Greater Erie Community Action Committee (GECAC), since she is on the team to promote involvement in the walk for GECAC. If you want more information you can check it out at: www.walkforahealthycommunity.org/eri
e/index.shtml it will be a good time and a good walk! I'll make sure we have some more information when we meet on Tuesday. If we decide to do this I can make sure we are registered.

emoticon If you are interested in doing group walks when the weather gets nicer, bring a pocket calendar to mark down dates we can walk. Make sure you bring ideas of places we can walk too! A few suggestions are: Presque Isle, Behrend Campus, Mercyhurst Campus, Scott park (a 1 mile loop and fitness trail) Edinboro Lake area and Frontier Park. I'm sure there are other areas in our community, so I'm hoping everyone thinks of someplace to suggest for our walks.

emoticon For some of our members that have been around for a while ... we also want to say "Welcome Home" to Becky (Zookeeper9996). She is back in Erie after a 3 month (or so) vacation in Australia ... she has lots of stories to share ... and pictures too. I'm sure we will have fun hearing all about her trip, and her exciting news when we see her on Tuesday.

Please let me know if you are planning to join us for supper ... If there are enough I will make sure we have some tables in the back ... it gives us a little more privacy, and we can move about and visit, make plans etc, without disturbing other customers.

Hope to see you all on Tuesday ...

I'll send that date out to everyone and see what happens ... I hope we get enough people to really do some planning for the spring and summer. I'll make sure I let Joymiko know ... if she can make it she will be able to bring information for the Erie walk on June 2. Then we can decide if we want to get a team together for it.

Hopefully you will be able to walk better by then. Are you doing all your therapy??? MAKE SURE YOU DO EVERYTHING THEY TELL YOU!!!!

I'm hoping 6 pm will work for everyone ... and since no one has complained or stated a preference I'm picking the Hoss's by my house. If we have to move it to the east side that won't be a problem.

Tuesday the 31st is the best date for me. Thursdays we have the puppy class until May. I can rearrange my voice lessons for the 31st. (Hope that works for everyone else.)

Joe,

Shirley is welcome to join us ... I'm sure she has been following your progress ... and would like to meet the people that help support you. Do you have a couple of dates that would be better ... if we want to make it this week we still have Tuesday March 24, or we can put it off until next week ... March 31 or April 2nd.

I'm still hoping everyone likes Hoss's ... east or west? I don't know what the east side Hoss's is like ... ours is only a couple of years old and I can probably get us reservations in the back room.

I'd like to set something up by tomorrow so I can let everyone know ... so get back to me asap.

I'd like to get in on this. The 26th won't work for me. Shirley and I already have a commitment. I mention Shirley since she doesn't think that 1 man (and a pastor at that)would not be such a good idea to have dinner with "squaws"! Hope she could join me?
Wednesdays don't work for me. I have a worship service every wed at 7PM

Sounds good to me, I'm available.

OK ... who's ready to have supper someplace and try to organize some regular walks??? It is so hard to plan something with everyone having such different schedules ... if we all get together I can bring along a calendar and we can decide which day(s) and locations will be best! We can also talk about joining the Walk on June 2nd ... as a group from SparkPeople. Maybe we can all get a T-shirt ... or something else to identify ourselves.

Check out the "New and Old members introduce yourselves here" thread ... Becky is back and it will be fun to hear all about her time in Australia ... and she mentioned something about emoticon wedding plans!!!! emoticon

I was thinking we might like to try Hoss's ... It has a wonderful salad bar ... good soup (ours has a lady that makes them homemade!!), and other healthy choices! I have one out my way on Route 20 just past K-Mart west ... and I know there is another on the east side (not sure of the location).

Let me know if you would like to do this ... and when you will be available. I'll try my best to pick a good time for everyone ...

This will be a great way to celebrate SPRING!!!
