I'm here. Yes, this team (and all northern CA teams I've come across) is very quiet. Perhaps we could each strive for checking in at least once a week? That way we can keep each other up to date. Since the point of these teams is to support each other and, as I tell my kids, "I can't help you if you don't tell me you're having trouble."

Is anyone up to trying to meet in a central location so we can meet in person? According to the team map we are located from San Jose up to Portland. I think it would be fun to plan a potluck picnic somewhere and we could all meet each other.

Let me know what you think and where you think a central location would be. Myself, I would not mind driving 1 to 2 hours to get to a destination. The other thing would be when would a good time to do this be?? I know some of you have children and are still working so what do you all think about this brain storm of mine?

Hi Jeanie,
I usually huddle with this team every day and post in the "NorCal Sparkers Chatter". We are a small team but we are kind of a quiet bunch. I was thinking of trying to get a bunch of us to meet somewhere in a central location but I have not done anything about that yet. I think it would be fun to meet in person and maybe have a picnic or something. Been busy working in my yard.

Hi, visit "NorCal Sparkers Chatter" sticky topic -- a little more activity there -- but we are a quiet bunch!

I noticed no one huddles anymore or anything. And when I checked out our team map, we're all practically right on top of each other....a bit discouraging, I must say.
=(

But I know we all have good intentions and can get distracted with life from time to time...Let's show everyone we ARE on the map!!!

Oh, I hated running when I was younger, now at more mature age - I realized that it's the easiest and "cheapest" excercise for me. I learned to love it!
Happy Friday to everyone!

I really enjoy reading the posts from all the Sparkers that run. I have to take my hat off to you because it is a great accomplishment. I have never enjoyed running but I do like walking. I'm headed outside to work in my yard today. Happy Thursday to you also.

Hi AILULI,

Sorry to hear you got sick. Take care of yourself. You have been a good member of this team. I just wish more people would participate.

Take Care,

I'm sorry that I have not logged anything this past week. I ran Big Sur marathon on April 25 and did some excersises week after, but then I got sick and now I have been allowing my body to rest totally. Next week I will start logging miles and other stuff!!

I have been trying to get more people to join Spark People in my area and then maybe I can get them to join our team.

I will make sure I come by our team daily and post a message and also huddle.

Ha Ha -- we are too busy enjoying the great weather! Wasn't it nice to have some sunshine? even though we need the rain.

Hey, where is everyone, our leader doesn't go here any more and most messages are old. Come on, let's show the rest of the world we are alive and breathing and getting healthy at the same time! Wake up, it's not snowing here like on the east coast, let's shake things up and get active!

Hugs
