Hey SIMPLY_SARA79 - I live in the Land Park area, which is by the zoo. I walk/run one side of the park which is exactly 2 miles. I started when I was heavier, and I would just walk, then a very slow jog for a short distance, then walk. Id go back and forth like that, jogging a little bit more as time went on. I always figure, its not how fast I am going, rather that I am going. emoticon Now, I usually jog 3/4 of the park and I keep slowly adding more jog time. You can do it!

I will be there in July. I am coming to see my beautiful granddaugter turn one. i was planning on moving and putting my house on the market but I am really concerned about doing anything right now with the oil spill in the Gulf. I am concerned about declining home values HERE and from whatI have been reading the prices if homes in Sacramento are on the rise again.

Let's get together............ Here is the INVITE. I have copied it from the SACRAMENTO SPARKLES team chat.


"I've been able to reserve room at the Arden Library Monday, June 28th. Below is general announcement.


SAC-SPARKLES JUNE 28th GET TOGETHER & CRAFTS SHARING

June 28, 5:30pm to 7:30pm
Arden Library, Meeting Room
2443 Marconi Avenue
Sacramento CA 95821

Join Sacramento Sparkles Team members and other local Spark friends at a June get together and crafts sharing session. Please come and share your favorite "Spark" finger-food or snack and any suggestions for eating healthy & getting our exercise in during the summer.

In addition (since some of you are crafts people) I'm hoping that you can bring samples of your crafts to share w/the group. The meeting room will be open at 5:00 for set up/ preparation for our get together.

If you have a great finger-food item you'd like to share please bring it. The library meeting room has a small kitchen, so there's small area to do some prep work if you'd need it. The Sacramento Sparkles Team is hosting the meet up and will be providing paper plates, utensils, cups & drinks.

Please RSVP/SparkMail MIMULUSBUG if you think you might be able to come and/or if you'll be able to share your crafts and would like a table to display your work.

Hope to see you Monday night!

Mim/Sabrina "

YOU CAN ALSO R.S.V.P. to my attention. Thanks, Vivian.

Are there any walking clubs? There is no way my hips will let me run.

Sing to the Lord a new song, for he has done marvelous things:... Psalm 98

Therefore we do not lose heart. Though... we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day my day....So fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. for what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal

Doing nothing is the most perfect form of action, when I do nothing there is nothing left undone and there is nothing left to do.... The Way by Lao Tse

If I remember correctly, Hiram Johnson is slightly on the other side of the freeway from Sac State. There are some great entrances to the American River Parkway near you. There's an entrance to the Parkway where Howe meets La Riviera. Hope it helps. Let us know what you find out!

Simply_Sara,

If you would like to run on a field as opposed to running on cement there is a huge field behind the Family Relations Courthouse which is right up the street from Hiram Johnson (Ramona & Power Inn). Check it out, there are always folks out there working on their fitness.

You can have RESULTS or EXCUSES... not both!

You can't spell CHALLENGE without CHANGE!

Curtis Park has a track that loops (approximately 1 mile). You will find strollers, walkers, joggers, and runners. It is in a friendly little neighborhood and not too far from HJ High School. It is near Sutterville and Franklin.

There are lot of great parks around. Some are small and others quite large. Maybe you would feel more comfortable there. Trees, fresh air and not too many who would want to be critical... just admiring that you are out there, giving it a go. Getting healthy - maybe you would inspire someone else to get off the couch??
Some of the malls have morning walking allowable BEFORE the mall opens to the public. I know Arden and Sunrise do.

I am not a runner, so I can't be of much help. But FOR ME, I think it would be to start doing a lot of walking and getting up some speed then when the mood hits you just jog a little bit and walk a little bit then jog some more until you are comfortable with it. I would be sure to check with the doctor to make sure running is something he/she would want you doing. Hopefully someone will be able to give you more straight answer.

I'm really hoping to keep up the momentum from this past weekend. I spent a couple of hours on Friday doing yard work. We ran 3 miles on Saturday, took a 15-mile bike ride on Sunday and ran another 3 miles yesterday. I'm walking to the library today, but don't have anything else planned. I want to bring my running stuff to work tomorrow and try for another 3 miles. I'd like to run 3 days a week instead of the 1-2 I've been doing.

50 is the new 30.
