Today I noticed I had received Sparkmail....it has been a while since I have received any since I am not very team active these days because my family, running and work life take SO much out of me. The email was a nice surprise that I am hoping I can share with you all (no, I am not southern, but it felt so right 😉) in the future sometime. That email though got me wondering ...how long have I been a member of Spark People? I just remembered it was coming up...on the 30th of September, in 3 days, I will have been a member for 10 FREAKING YEARS!
This site has been amazing! This reminder of 10 years coming up is also bitter sweet. I solely found out about Spark People from an ex-best friend. Pondering back it reminds me of my unhappy self and wanting to share with her my weight loss successes...(may have been a roller coaster ride) and not being able to thank her, for the beginning of my journey. It was a small push in the right direction before a stupid home construction accident had me see my weight ON A SCALE, that finalized my resolve. I just got teary remembering I never thanked her and probably never will.
I wanted to write this blog on the actual 10 year anniversary, but I fear I may forget, because I have 2 training runs for my hopeful Ultra 50K in a month, church AND food prep on Sunday and I don't want to forget this most impressive moment in my life. Because this, this and this and more have happened to change my perspective and life...
Thanks Spark People and of course Spark Guy!
